Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for A Quiet Place: Part 2, the highly anticipated sequel to John Krasinski’s 2018 directorial horror debut. The clip packs a lot of information in its two and a half minutes, including a much-needed backstory to the alien invasion plaguing its lead characters. Watch the trailer here, but make sure to muffle your screams: They can hear you.
On Jan. 1, Paramount Pictures unveiled the first clip for the highly anticipated sequel to the 2018 film starring Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, which begins with a flashback that shows when the sound-hunting monsters first appeared to wreak havoc. The latest trailer released on Jan. 31, which serves as the film’s Super Bowl ad, features a surprise appearance by director John Krasinski, whose character Lee Abbott was last seen sacrificing himself to aid his family’s escape in A Quite Place. The new footage features Lee and Regan (Millicent Simmonds) in an intense flashback sequence which sees one of the noise-attracted aliens attacking a crowded city street.
A Quiet Place: Part 2 picks up right where the first movie left us, with Emily Blunt’s Evelyn Abbott leading her now-traumatized kids away from their burning house and into the dark unknown. They stumble — quite literally — upon another survivor (Cillian Murphy)’s hideout, who takes them in and debriefs them on the progress of the invasion. Evelyn believes that there are suffering people who need to be saved from the aliens’ wrath, but he assures her, “The people that are left… are not the kind of people worth saving.”
Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds reprise their roles as Marcus and Regan Abbott, the poor children that just wanted to play some Monopoly in peace. Since part of the trailer flashes back to Day 1 of the invasion, does that mean Krasinski will be making an appearance as the ill-fated Lee Abbott? We can only hope.
A Quiet Place: Part II is scheduled to hit theaters March 20, 2020.
