Coming Soon To Theaters: A Quiet Place Part II

 

I have something to admit. I haven’t seen A Quiet Place yet. So when I read the credit list for the unexpected hit’s big-time sequel and noticed John Krasinski’s name was not listed as a star but only the director and screenwriter, I assumed something from the first film was ultimately spoiled for me. Watching the trailer doesn’t exactly confirm that fact but I can assume that Krasinski doesn’t make it out of the first one.

Regardless of whether you’ve seen the first one or not, the trailer is extremely stressful and looks like a fairly self-contained story, though I’m assuming it has flashbacks to events prior to the first film. A Quiet Place made $340 million on a minuscule budget of $17 million so I imagine no expense was spared for the sequel, which looks like a big-budget The Walking Dead episode (something I haven’t seen either). In the end, I just want to know if that alien-bug-creature thing is driving that bus.

The official synopsis for the film:

“Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) 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.”
