Streaming Catch-Up: Glass Onion, Causeway, The People We Hate at the Wedding

The Netflix sequel to Knives Out will open in cinemas a month before it streams.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery will play in select cinemas from November 23-29, a month ahead of its December 23 Netflix premiere.

Daniel Craig’s suave southern sleuth Benoit Blanc returns to peel back the layers on a new mystery surrounded by a colourful coterie of suspects played by Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline with Kate Hudson and Dave Bautista. 

“Given the excitement surrounding the premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, we hope fans will enjoy this special theatrical event in celebration of the film’s global debut on Netflix in December, ”Scott Stuber, Head of Global Film at Netflix, says.

Apple Original Films and A24 have unveiled the trailer for Causeway, a Jennifer Lawrence drama that will stream from November 4.

Directed by Lila Neugebauer, it stars Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence as a military engineer who returns to the US from Afghanistan with a debilitating brain injury after an IED explosion. Reads the blurb:

 It’s a painful and slow recovery as she relearns to walk and re-trains her memory, aided by a chatty but tender caretaker (Jayne Houdyshell). But when she returns home to New Orleans she has to face memories even more aching and formative than those she had in service: a reckoning with her childhood. 

Staying with her mother (Linda Emond), with whom she shares a tense relationship, all Lynsey wants to do is return to her work as an engineer. Her doctor (Stephen McKinley Henderson) is wary, and so in the meantime, she gets a job cleaning pools.

When her truck breaks down she meets James Aucoin (Brian Tyree Henry), who works at the auto repair shop and offers her a ride home. Slowly they start to rely on each other for company and solace. James, it turns out, is also suppressing his own past trauma.  

These two damaged souls’ budding friendship forms the center and the heart of Neugebauer’s debut feature — a quiet but devastating, and ultimately uplifting, story about coming to terms and moving forward. 

Prime Video has released the stills for The People We Hate at the Wedding, which will stream from November 18.

Billed as an “hilariously raunchy comedy”, it follows dysfunctional American siblings Alice (Kristen Bell) and Paul (Ben Platt), along with their ever-optimistic mom (Allison Janney), when they are invited to the British wedding of their estranged half-sister Eloise (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) as a chance for them to reconnect as–more or less–adults, and learn to love each other like they once did.
