‘Glass Onion’ Minimize A Put up-Credit Scene That Adjustments All the things

The next publish incorporates spoilers for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Thriller. 

Glass Onion, technically generally known as Glass Onion: A Knives Out Thriller, initially featured a post-credits scene that recontextualizes the remainder of the movie. The film sees Daniel Craig reprising his function from Knives Out, the detective Benoit Blanc. He is met with a brand new thriller involving an eccentric billionaire named Miles Bron. Because the movie unfolds, it turns into clear that every of Bron’s get together visitors have hidden motives for showing on the homicide thriller get together he’s internet hosting. Because the threads start to unravel, Blanc dives deeper right into a grand conspiracy surrounding Miles.

In an interview with Empire’s Spoiler Special podcast, Rian Johnson, the movie’s director, revealed a bit of data that would have modified the result of the movie. Within the model fo the movie streaming on Netflix, a hearth destroys the Mona Lisa, which Miles Bron had on mortgage from the Louvre. Its destruction ensures that Miles’ new various vitality supply, Klear, will probably be uncovered as a harmful failure.

However Johnson initially had a distinct plan. As he defined, “we additionally shot a bit coda which we determined to not use, with Blanc on the telephone talking French and getting a bit affirmation of ‘Ah, oui, oui, merci’ and reducing to an workplace within the Louvre the place the actual Mona Lisa is, with the safety guards saying ‘Properly, again to work.’ However that pulls a punch, I like that the actual portray will get destroyed within the film.”

“We obtained a really gifted, native Belgrade artist to do a recreation of the Mona Lisa and it was type of extraordinary having it on set. I did not understand this, however when you get a recreation like this, you must destroy them while you’re performed filming, if it is a well-known murals. You really need to doc your self burning the canvas due to the counterfeit market. Daniel was a bit nervous that we have been ‘killing the pet’ by upsetting individuals as we destroyed the Mona Lisa, however the scene in Bean the place he destroys ‘Whistler’s Mom’ is likely one of the funniest scenes in cinematic historical past, so I figured we would get away with this. That scene is so good.”

Not solely would the exclusion of this scene take away a symbolic indictment of the uber-wealthy, however it could additionally fully change the implications the destruction of the Mona Lisa had from a plot perspective.

Glass Onion is now streaming on Netflix. It’s already the fifth-most-popular title within the streaming service’s historical past.
