‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’ Scores Over 82 Million Hours Watched Opening Weekend on Netflix

After how popular Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery proved to be during its one week theatrical run, we knew that audiences were interested in Rian Johnson‘s latest whodunit. Well, it turns out, the numbers for Christmas weekend on Netflix were big. While spending time with family and friends, a lot of folks also streamed Benoit Blanc’s latest adventure, which if you recall, Joey loved here at the Toronto International Film Festival.

According to Variety, over 82 million hours worth of the movie was streamed on the platform since it dropped. The article states: “A sequel to Rian Johnson’s 2019 whodunnit “Knives Out,” “Glass Onion” was watched for 82.1 million hours in the Dec. 19-25 viewing window, during which it was only available for the last three days. By Netflix’s estimation, dividing viewing hours by the film’s 2.3-hour runtime, this means 35 million households tuned in.” That’s a lot of eyeballs on Daniel Craig and company in Glass Onion, which Netflix is undoubtedly thrilled with.
