‘That’s what you get when you make quality movies’: ‘Glass Onion’ Projected To Hit #3 at Domestic Box Office Despite Being Released in Just 600 Theaters

Glass Onion hits #3 at the domestic box office with limited release.

After the larger-than-life success of the Academy Award-nominated Knives Out, the sequel to the movie,  Glass Onion has been on a slaying spree at the US domestic box office. With equal amounts of praise from the critics to the commercial success thanks to the audiences, the film jumped the charts within the following week of its release. But seeing the popularity and the craze of the previous film, it might not be as hard to believe for some.

But what most people might also be informed of is the fact that the distribution and ownership of the Daniel Craig starrer are in the hands of the streaming giant Netflix, and they had decided to release the movie in select theatres in America for the initial month and a half of its release date. Thus, what is surprising is the fact that the film has topped the charts despite being released in a measly 600 cinemas across the US!

Since Daniel Craig took on the role of Benoit Blanc in the original Knives Out, he has been keen on pursuing the role for the long run. Coming back to reprise his role in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, he has seemed to surpass public expectations with his performance as the witty detective. This, along with the critics calling the film a quality work, does add to the fact that the film now sits atop the throne at the US Box Office.

In the meantime, we can still be stoked about the fact that Netflix has taken exclusive rights for 2 sequels of the original Knives Out, which means that more films are on the way!
