The all-star cast of Knives Out 2 is seen in fresh photos that hint at tensions within the group.
In the film Knives Out 2, starring Kate Hudson, Leslie Odom Jr., and Kathryn Hahn, the three of them may be seen looking intently at a mobile device.
In a fresh trio of first-look pictures for Knives Out 2, things are heating up.
Rian Johnson, director of the epic space opera The Last Jedi, shifted gears to direct the murder mystery Knives Out.
The star-studded 2019 movie ended up being a huge success, earning $311 million throughout the world.
Having signed on with Netflix, Johnson is prepared to turn Knives Out into a full-fledged franchise, bringing back many of the offbeat characters from the first film, including Daniel Craig's investigator Benoit Blanc.
Knives Out's success can be attributed in large part to the calibre of its cast, which will be replicated in the sequel, which will be called Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.
Craig is joined by a slew of A-listers in the sequel, including Edward Norton, Janelle Monae, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Madeline Cline, Kate Hudson, and Ethan Hawke.
Empire has released three new first looks for Knives Out 2, giving fans a glimpse at some of the film's biggest names in action.
The new photographs are missing Craig, but they do feature Bautista, Norton, Hahn, Odom Jr., Hudson, and Monae.
Look at the pictures down here:

The stars of Knives Out 2, Kate Hudson, Leslie Odom Jr., and Kathryn Hahn, are all mesmerised by their phones.
Knives Out 2 features a tense stare-down between Ed Norton and Dave Bautista.
In Knives Out 2, Janelle Monae and Kathryn Hahn get into an altercation.
The first picture shows Birdie Jay (Hudson), Lionel Toussaint (Odom), and Claire Debella (Hahn) looking at a very exciting phone.
Then, in a very heated stare-down, Bautista's Duke Cody and Norton's Miles Bron look each other dead in the eye.
Finally, Claire (Hahn) and Cassandra (Monae) Brand (Andi) get into it.
We can see from these pictures that interpersonal conflicts will play a significant role in Glass Onion.
That's hardly shocking because the original Knives Out was all about the drama that ensued among a large, rich family with questionable ethics.
Casting is undoubtedly the most important aspect of any film, and with Knives Out 2, Johnson appears to have done an excellent job creating a cast that will keep viewers entertained with their portrayal of a bunch of people that are always bickering with one another.
In addition to Craig's Benoit Blanc, the murder mystery plot was essential to Knives Out.
It remains to be seen how the hostile characters of Glass Onion become involved in a mystery.
However, fans may have been given a helping hand by Johnson, who has said that the film Last of Sheila had a major influence on him.
Of course, Agatha Christie was also an influence on Knives Out 2, with Johnson intending to repeat the success of the first film while confounding certain audience expectations.
