A Quiet Place was one of those special movies that had a lot going for it. It had a great premise, a great cast, solid direction, and a confident tone. It was the kind of movie that was right at home alongside other genre favorites around the like Get Out. It felt wholly unique and original, and in a world where sequels are all but inevitable, it was quit refreshing…but we knew a sequel was imminent.
In the past, director John Krasinski has expressed his own reticence at doing another film, and that it was only at the prodding from his wife and co-star Emily Blunt that he could get outside of his own head regarding how a sequel could play out.
“It was actually Emily, of course, who articulated it better than me,” Krasinski told The Big Picture podcast in November of last year. “She said the same thing, it was like, ‘No way, don’t do a second one,’ and then I pitched her my idea and she was like, ‘So you’re definitely doing that.’ She said, ‘But it’s not a sequel. It’s the second book in a series,’ she said, ‘It sounds [like] semantics but it’s true, it really is—you’re not doing anything that’s like, alright I’m gonna take all the things you love and just kinda repeat them but in a different way.’ It’s not A Quieter Place, it’s sort of an exploration of getting to live in the circumstances, and that’s really fun.”
So, how can this play out? Well, we have our first taste in a new teaser, with a promise for a full trailer very soon.
In this clip, we see the Abbott family return. We also get a nice synopsis.
“Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.”
