Just in case you’re in the market for a new house, you should check out this one from Zillow. It’s a listing for the massive island mansion from Rian Johnson‘s “Knives Out” sequel, “Glass Onion.” Darol Zablinski, the quietly-there roommate of millionaire Miles Bron, posted the property. This whopping 29,000 square foot piece of real-estate hosts 17 bedrooms, 22 bathrooms, and an infinity pool. Priced at a reasonable $450,000,000, clearly Zablinski’s hard up to find a new buyer for this multi-layered murder house.
“Glass Onion” continues the story of Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig), looking for the next great mystery to occupy his busy mind. The movie is a triumph of whodunnits. It’s up there with “Clue” and is just as entertaining as its previous film. Starring Janelle Monae as Helen Brand as she works with Blanc to discover the truth behind her twin sister’s murder. What unfolds is a fantastic labyrinth of whos and hows.
The movie has a hilarious supporting cast in Kate Hudson, Dave Bautista, Madelyn Cline, Kathryn Hahn, Jessica Henwick, Leslie Odom Jr. and Edward Norton. Johnson has put together another unexpected assortment of actors that play their parts incredibly well on top of seeming like they had a great time overall. It’s too rare now that a movie is made just to be fun and entertaining and pull it off well.
Seeing Zillow getting in on its novelty is fantastic. Who wouldn’t want to spend a weekend there? Provided there are no killers in your midst. As the listing says, “this private commune is the perfect retreat for groups of friends, families and enemies alike…” Just be sure to get there at low tide. The Banksy pier’s a “pisceshite.”
“Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” is currently streaming on Netflix.
