Paramount Pictures has released their final trailer for A Quiet Place today. And I guess you could say it finally brings the noise.
Much of the promotional work up until today has emphasized the silence that is centric to the movie’s plot. But that ends now. We all knew that at some point in film’s story the shit would hit the fan and screams would finally soar. And the final trailer teases just that.
The beginning of the trailer seems to suggest that the creatures within the movie are extraterrestrials. News reports cite a “massive invasion” and “total devastation.” So that adds another element to the already intriguing premise.
For those unaware, the movie is described by Paramount as a “modern horror thriller” in which “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.”
The film stars the real life couple of Emily Blunt and John Krasinski as Evelyn and Lee Abbott. Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds play the couple’s children, Marcus and Regan. With the latter being deaf as a core point in the movie’s narrative.
A Quiet Place is directed and co-written by Krasinski. It’s his 4th title in which he’s served as screenwriter and 3rd as director. With his previous directorial efforts being 2009’s Brief Interviews with Hideous Men and 2016’s The Hollars.
Krasinski made a point of hiring an actual deaf actress for the role of Regan. In a January interview with IGN, he stated that he did so “for many reasons, I didn’t want a non-deaf actress pretending to be deaf. Most importantly though, because a deaf actress would help my knowledge and my understanding of the situations tenfold. I wanted someone who lives it and who could teach me about it on set.”
A Quiet Place is co-produced by Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes. Platinum Dunes is the production company headed by Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller. The film lands in theaters this Friday, April 6th.
