BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Indiana University Cinema will host a free preview screening of “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” with the film’s composer, Nathan Johnson, in attendance at 7 p.m. Dec. 19.
“Glass Onion” is the hotly anticipated sequel to director Rian Johnson’s 2019 “Knives Out,” a murder-mystery with a star-studded cast that was one of the year’s biggest successes. The sequel has earned rave reviews at film festivals across the world and features an ensemble cast including Daniel Craig, Edward Norton, Janelle Monáe, Leslie Odom Jr., Kate Hudson, Dave Bautista and Kathryn Hahn.
Johnson is an award-winning composer whose work has been featured in films including “Brick,” “Nightmare Alley,” “Looper,” “The Brothers Bloom” and “Knives Out.” Johnson will speak on stage, joined by Indianapolis composer and filmmaker Ashton Gleckman, who has worked with luminaries like Hans Zimmer.
“We’re incredibly excited to be able to host Nathan and screen ‘Glass Onion,’” IU Cinema Director Alicia Kozma said. “This is the only chance for audiences in Bloomington to able to experience this film as it should be seen: in the world-renowned theatrical environment of IU Cinema and with the expert insights of the film’s composer.”
“Glass Onion” was released in select theaters from Nov. 23 to 29. It was then removed in anticipation of its wider Netflix release on Dec. 23 and may not return to theaters.
“The combination of this film showing ahead of its formal release, screening in a theatrical environment, and the added bonus of Nathan and Ashton’s participation make this a truly unique event to IU Cinema and the Bloomington community,” Kozma said.
Local law firm Meitus Gelbert Rose LLP is working in collaboration with IU Cinema to bring this event to Bloomington and IU. This event is free, but tickets are required. Tickets are available on the IU Cinema website.
