2018’s “A Quiet Place” was an out-of-the-blue $350 million hit for Paramount Pictures. John Krasinski directed, co-wrote, and co-starred in the modestly budgeted sci-fi horror film that also featured his real-life wife, the always good Emily Blunt. It brilliantly exuded edge-of-your-seat tension while telling a genuinely moving and heartfelt family story. I loved it.
The inevitable but welcomed sequel was teased a couple of weeks ago and now we finally get the first full trailer. It opens with an exhilarating perspective shot in the back seat of a car. It’s clearly teasing a flashback to when the aliens first attacked. But then it shifts to the Abbott family trying to survive outside the confines of their once relatively safe farmhouse. Krasinski is back in the director’s chair while Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe all return. Cillian Murphy and Dijimon Hounsou add some intriguing new faces.
I can’t wait for March 20th which is when the film is set to hit theaters. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
A Quiet Place was one of my fav movies of 2018. It took you on an emotional and intense ride. This trailer has me pumped. Plus by focusing on one family, it grips you for their well being. Plus your right, Emily Blunt is stellar in everything she does. This one is on my must see list for 2020.
Oh I loved the first film. It was in my Top 10 that year. And as a dad it REALLY spoke to me. I love where this one is going. I just hope it hangs onto that intimate family focus.
Yeah, it was so good to see a Dad portrayed in such a positive light. It really moved me as a Dad as well .
Yes! And sadly we don’t get many of those depictions these days.
Yes we loved the first one and this looks like it could be even better, or at least as good. Will definitely be doing it.
Awesome! My whole family loved the first movie even the two girls who generally don’t like horror pictures. It’s all about that wonderful family element.
Hadn’t realised the guy who wrote directed and was the dad in it (also married to Blunt) was the Jack Ryan guy in a series I like, he gets about!
Yep, that’s him. And he seems like a really solid guy.
I saw the trailer just an hour ago on my dad’s phone. Looks good though I still haven’t seen the first one.
Oh you must make time for the first movie. It was in my top 10 that year. It has such a clever concept and the execution is flawless. I think you would really like it.
This trailer looks so good! I loved the first movie, so I’m really looking forward to this one.
Me too! I love the direction they are taking this. And luckily we won’t have to wait long. March 20th will be here before you know it.
