We are a week away from being able to see it Crystal Onion: A Knives Out Mystery in theaters and a month of seeing it knives out 2 on Netflix, but can you catch the first movie on the streaming service? The answer is yes, but it depends on where you live.
Debuting in theaters for one week on November 23rd and arriving on Netflix a month later, Netflix will release the big-budget sequel to Knives Out (which was released in 2019) with the return of Rian Johnson in the director’s chair and Daniel Craig. . in front of the camera.
As a reminder, the first movie featured the likes of Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, and Jaeden Martell.
It was about a detective (played by Craig) unraveling a web of secrets and lies surrounding the death of a successful crime novelist and his disturbing, eccentric family.
Now, unlike the second movie, Netflix didn’t distribute the first movie. That was done by Lionsgate, who owns the distribution rights to the first film. Netflix only bought the rights to make and distribute the second and third movies.

Whether you buy streaming rights specifically or through existing deals with Lionsgate, Netflix has movie streaming in multiple regions.

Netflix is still looking to license the film ahead of the movie’s theatrical release, and it’s worth noting that Netflix itself. In a Puck News report, Matthew Belloni stated in September that Netflix was “desperately” seeking to license the original film saying:
“Fun fact: Netflix now desperately wants to license the original knives out to broadcast in the US when the sequel opens in December, but the CEO of Lionsgate Jon Feltheimer, still smarting from losing the franchise, isn’t exactly being helpful in making that happen. The talks are ongoing. (Lionsgate declined to comment.)
where to stream knives out in the United States and United Kingdom
