The latest trailer for Paramount Pictures’ horror thriller A Quiet Place provides the first look at life outside the family at the heart of the story’s home. It also teases that something major occurred worldwide and that event led to the current situation in which people are attacked if they make any noise.
The film’s new trailer warns “those who have survived live by one rule: never make a sound.” The trailer also shows the children having a difficult time staying quiet, with the mother (played by Emily Blunt) asking, “Who are we if we can’t protect them? We have to protect them.”
A Quiet Place was directed by John Krasinski, best known for playing Jim on the long-running half-hour comedy series, The Office. Krasinski’s directing credits include three episodes of The Office as well as the feature films Brief Interviews with Hideous Men (2009) and The Hollars (2016). In addition to directing A Quiet Place, Krasinski also co-wrote the screenplay with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck and stars in the film alongside his wife, Emily Blunt (The Girl on the Train, Sicario, and the upcoming Mary Poppins Returns).
Noah Jupe (Houdini and Doyle, The Night Manager) and Millicent Simmonds (Wonderstruck) co-star as Blunt and Krasinski’s young children. Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller were involved as producers.
Paramount Pictures is planning an April 6, 2018 theatrical release. That April release date puts it up against the comedy film Blockers, starring Leslie Mann and John Cena, and the thriller Chappaquiddick with Jason Clarke and Kate Mara.
The Plot: In the modern horror thriller A Quiet Place, a family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you.
