Netflix made a deal with Rian Johnson to screen Glass Onion on their platform, but before that, they actually allowed for a theatrical release in select cinemas. Fans are now going out to see Glass Onion in theaters, and what’s cool is, Johnson has a treat for anyone sitting in the very front row.
Besides surprising fans with his appearance before screenings, Johnson has also been giving away signed Milk Duds for audiences in the front row. Johnson shares:
I saw Matrix Reloaded opening night front row at an IMAX and I was 4 feet from the screen. Paying it forward. https://t.co/YvffjcAWPB

You really have to hand it to Johnson. Though The Last Jedi had made an army of Star Wars nerds bug him perpetually online, he seems to have a very positive outlook about everything, and is always doing nice things for the audience. Even before The Last Jedi came out, Johnson had surprised fans in line for his panel at Star Wars Celebration.
So far, Glass Onion has been receiving some sparkling reviews. Though Knives Out feels like a one and done, it seems that Johnson has an entire franchise planned out around Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc character. Hopefully people will be singing the same tune when the movie finally comes out on Netflix.
Here’s the official synopsis for Glass Onion:
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.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is currently screening in select theaters, but will debut on Netflix on Dec. 23.
