Hindi movie Thank God also has had its digital premiere this weekend. Season 2 of the web series Kathmandu Connection and Pitchers are out, too. Here are more details on the new OTT releases this week.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (Netflix)
It is a mystery film written and directed by Rian Johnson and produced by Johnson and Ram Bergman. It is the sequel to the 2019 film Knives Out, with Daniel Craig reprising his role as master detective Benoit Blanc as he takes on a new case. During the COVID-19 pandemic, detective Benoit Blanc is hired by Helen Brand (Janelle Monáe) to investigate the death of her twin sister, Cassandra “Andi" Brand.
The ensemble cast includes Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson, and Dave Bautista. Additionally, Ethan Hawke briefly appears as Miles’s assistant, Hugh Grant cameos as Phillip, Blanc’s domestic partner, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt voices Miles’s clock, the Hourly Dong. Several celebrities make cameo appearances as themselves.
Emily In Paris 3 (Netflix)
Created by Darren Star, the series stars Lilly Collins as the titular character of an American marketing executive who is forced to go work in Paris and how she comes to love it. In this season, the big question is whether Emily will stay in Paris or return to Chicago. Emily is so conflicted about whether to join Sylvie at her new firm or stay with old boss Madeline that she somehow ends up working for both, which can never end well. She also still has feelings for the French chef Gabriel, but for now has chosen Alfie. Emily’s friend Mindy (Ashley Park) is also caught between two men who like her. There is a fabulous French cover of Lady Gaga’s song from A Star in Born, so definitely watch out for that.
