Glass Onion is currently the number one film on Netflix, and it stars ex-wrestler Dave Bautista. What’s fun is, Bautista shared a video of himself handing the WWE championship belt to director Rian Johnson after he walked in with Batista’s (Bautista’s wrestler persona) theme playing in the background.

I can’t tell if this is Bautista’s first or last day on the set of the movie, but based on the background, it looks like the location here is the home of Bautista’s character in the beginning of the film where he receives the puzzle box from Miles Bron (Edward Norton).
Though the murder-mystery genre has been done time and again, you have to commend Rian Johnson for being able to flip the whole thing on its head, with all the twists and turns of the story, and surprise reveals that a lot of fans don’t see coming.
You also have to love how he sets everything in the modern-day, and we get to watch everyone in the film actually go through the pandemic protocols that modern movies seem to be brushing off. Not to mention, Norton’s character Miles is a very sharp commentary on today’s billionaires—and a lot of people are comparing him to Elon Musk.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Tech billionaire Miles Bron invites his friends for a getaway on his private Greek island. When someone turns up dead, Detective Benoit Blanc is put on the case.
