The movie’s trailer indicates that Blanc is traveling to Greece to investigate his most recent case, which involves a new group of strange individuals. The group reportedly became closer after the actors traveled to Greece to film the movie during the pandemic, according to Hahn.
During the press conference, the “WandaVision” actress noted, “It did feel like we were this traveling circus together, which added, I think, to the texture of the movie.” “That kind of intimacy that we were able to forge in those conditions really added to the movie,” the actor said.
