A QUIET PLACE Trailer

John Krasinski takes a sharp turn with his third directorial feature, leaving behind quirky indies and heading straight for horror with A Quiet Place.

John Krasinski takes a sharp turn with his third directorial feature, leaving behind quirky indies and heading straight for horror with A Quiet Place.

The trailer does little except set the scene, but oh what a strange scene it is. There’s a family who walks on sand, speaks in sign language, and generally takes extreme measures to minimize sound. Huge scratch marks on the wall shows there’s a reason for this precaution, and once a sound is accidentally made, the family jumps into high alert. Something is hunting them, but the trailer has the good sense to leave what is coming a mystery.

It’s an outlandish premise made all the more peculiar by the talent involved. Krasinski was approached to tinker with the script, direct, and star, and as a bonus his wife (and arguably the more famous of the pair), Emily Blunt, also joined the cast. Working together isn’t the couple’s usual modus operandi; in fact, they’ve never starred together in a feature, which makes it seem like they were both genuinely drawn to this little oddball.

Additionally, the film boasts 2017 breakout Millicent Simmonds, who drew much praise for her debut in Wonderstruck, and accomplished child actor Noah Jupe, who was featured in both Suburbicon and Wonder this year.

So a film that sounds a little silly becomes intriguing based on the talent it attracted, and, oh yeah, the whole thing is from a spec script that also earned writing duo Scott Beck and Bryan Woods a write-to-direct deal for their next project. Something about that script caught a lot of people’s attention, and hopefully whatever spark it had is retained in the final product.

A Quiet Place is directed by John Krasinski and stars Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, and Noah Jupe. It will be released in the U.S. on April 6th, 2018 and in the U.K. on May 4th, 2018. For international release dates, click here.
