Daniel Craig Says Everyone Should Watch His New Movie Twice

  Daniel Craig Says Everyone Should Watch His New Movie Twice Daniel Craig has gone from appearing in films as James Bond to taking on an entirely different and new persona in Detective Benoit Blanc. The Knives Out is continuing with Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and Craig was on The Late Show to speak on why people should watch the new movie twice, but for a reason, you may not expect. According to Craig, “If you watch it again, he lays all this groundwork, he puts in all of these easter eggs, all of these things, and every single one of them pays off so it’s worth a second look.

"The less of a song and dance we make about that, the better, really, for me, because it just made sense," he said. "And also, as I said at the LFF, who wouldn't want to live with the human being that he happens to live with? It's nice, it's fun. And why shouldn't it be? I don't want people to get politically hung up on anything."

"Glass Onion" follows Benoit Blanc as he is invited to take part in a murder mystery game on a lavish Greek island. He is joined by several new characters played by a star-studded cast including Edward Norton, Kate Hudson, Kathryn Hahn, Dave Bautista, Leslie Odom Jr., and Janelle Monae.

Madelyn Cline, who also stars in the film, recently told People that she had a "little freakout" in a bathroom after meeting her famous costars for the first time.

"Daniel had everyone over to his villa for dinner, and it was nice because it kind of brought everyone together," Cline said. "I was nervous because I know them [as] characters that they've played, but I don't know them. I had my little freakout when I first met everyone. I had to go to the bathroom and I was like, 'You're good, you're good.' And then from there on out it was just a good time."

"Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery" is in theaters now.
