Gerard Butler stands in a dilapidated room. The white walls are stained with brown rust, a communications radio and wall phone hanging on the wall, warped and crusted with age. Butler holds the wall phone to his ear, only his left side visible as he braces himself against the wall with his left hand on the communications radio. He wears a dark gray shirt that has sweat stains. His faces is smudged with dirt and shines with sweat. His faces looks panicked and out of breath.

Becoming one of Netflix’s most popular films after premiering on the streaming site in December, Glass Onion stars Daniel Craig as detective Benoit Blanc who, like the audience, tries to piece together the layered story Johnson has set up.
