The official trailer for Netflix's upcoming film Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery film, which stars Janelle Monáe, has been unveiled.

After Netflix gave fans a first look at Rian Johnson's Knives Out sequel Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, and revealed its release date on the platform in August, the official trailer for the film has landed, which stars Janelle Monáe, Daniel Craig, Edward Norton, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr, Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista.

Johnson told Netflix in an interview that the film title pays homage to The Beatles' 1968 song of the same name, "I'm always fishing for something fun that Blanc [Daniel Craig] can grab onto as an overwrought metaphor that he can beat to death. This is all in plain sight from the very start. So, the idea of glass came to me, something that's clear. I'll be very honest. I literally got out my iPhone and searched my music library with the word 'glass'. There's got to be some good glass songs. I was like, "Oh, is it a glass fortress? Is it a glass castle? Is it a glass man?" The first thing that came up, because I'm a huge Beatles fan, is 'Glass Onion'."

Back in March Monáe voiced Claudia in episode eight of Human Resources.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will be available to stream globally on Netflix from 23 December.
