When Knives Out first arrived in 2019, it instantly drew comparisons to the board game Clue (or Cluedo) due to it being set in a grand and gothic manor house.
The same can’t be said for its long-awaited sequel, Glass Onion, as the new Netflix film serves as a sizable departure for Benoit Blanc as he embarks on a sun-soaked trip to Greece.
Glass Onion is set almost entirely on a luxurious private island with a magnificent and modern villa at its center but where exactly what Knives Out 2 filmed and what locations were used to create the stunning backdrop?
Glass Onion release date and plot preview
Glass Onion first hit cinema screens for a limited release on November 23, 2022, before it arrives on Netflix on December 23.
Daniel Craig returns as Detective Benoit Blanc as he’s faced with a new many-layered mystery to solve on a lavish private estate on a Greek island where eccentric billionaire Miles Bron has invited his exclusive group of friends for their yearly reunion.
When someone turns up dead, however, Blanc sets about peeling back the layers at the heart of Glass Onion and it’s revealed that every person on the island is hiding their own dark secrets, making each of them a dangerous suspect.
Where was Glass Onion filmed?
Glass Onion was filmed in Greece and Serbia.
As the Knives Out sequel is set on a Greek island, it should be no surprise that the film crew did travel to Greece for its location shooting.
Production took place on the island of Spetses which lies in the mouth of the Argolic Gulf in the Aegean Sea on the south-eastern coast of Greece.
On top of that, filming for Miles’s luxurious villa took place on the nearby mainland at Villa 20 in the Amanzoe resort near the town of Porto Heli.
Filming in Greece took place between June 28, 2021, and July 30 before production moved to Serbia before wrapping on September 13.
According to reports, Serbia’s capital city Belgrade played host to Glass Onion’s film crew and likely provided the location for the film’s studio shoots.
Fans can stay at the villa filming location
During production, the cast and crew of Glass Onion reportedly stayed at the Amanzoe resort where filming took place which writer and director Rian Johnson described as “a summer vacation where we also made a movie.”
Fans of the movie can also stay at the luxurious resort where filming took place, although we must warn you that prices aren’t cheap.
The Amanzoe resort near Porto Heli is currently closed for the winter but it is scheduled to reopen for the next summer season on April 1, 2023.
Bookings are being taken for when the resort reopens and a seven-night stay for two adults during the first week of April is slated to cost upwards of €10,710 as the cheapest room on offer, the Pool Pavilion, is priced at €1,530 per night and that’s before taxes and added fees are included.
If you’d rather visit during the height of summer in June, July or August, prices rise to between €3,000-€4,000 per night for the cheapest rooms.
The most expensive accommodation listed on the site is the 6-bedroom villa which is priced at €13,500 per night in April while in the middle of summer that increases to €17,729 per night.
The huge nine-bedroom Villa 20, where Glass Onion was filmed, does not have a price listed on the website suggesting that it is even more eye-wateringly expensive.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery arrives on Netflix on December 23, 2022, after its limited cinema release in November.
