Paramount Pictures has released a very effective, chilling first trailer for the thriller, A Quiet Place. The trailer focuses on a family who are attempting to survive in a world in which the slightest bit of noise could reveal their positions to an enemy kept hidden from view in the trailer. The family communicates via sign language and they have designated places to walk to ensure they don’t make a sound.
The first official two-minute trailer has one impressive jump scare and effectively conveys the tone for this 2018 thriller. Real-life couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt (The Girl on the Train, Into the Woods, Edge of Tomorrow) co-star in the film, with Krasinski pulling triple duty as director and co-writer. His previous credits as a director include 2009’s Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, 2016’s The Hollars, and three episodes of the comedy series, The Office.
The cast also includes Noah Jupe (Houdini and Doyle, The Night Manager) and Millicent Simmonds (Wonderstruck) as the couple’s children who are growing up in a silent world. Andrew Form, Bradley Fuller, Michael Bay, and John Krasinki are producing, with Scott Beck, Celia D. Costas, Allyson Seeger, and Bryan Woods executive producing.
Paramount Pictures is targeting an April 6, 2018 theatrical release.
The Plot: If they can’t hear you, they can’t hunt you.
