A Quiet Place first dropped on the 6th of April 2018 and managed to take us all by surprise. Till that point in time, fans haven’t had to chance to witness something quite like it. It opened the horror genre to new things, and the entire concept behind the film managed to awe many a fan. This film can easily be crowned one of the best works of entertainment that came out that year. Two years later, we still aren’t over it. The film grossed a whopping 34.09 crores USD at the Box Office and was rightly termed a hit. The best thing about A Quiet Place is the attention paid to the story. While the point of a horror film is to scare the viewers a little, the film did not have this alone as its sole aim. The details and the characterization were paid much heed to, and the storyline was tight-knit and well rounded. All in all, A Quiet Place was a well-rounded viewing experience.
All of this said and done, fans of the film can expect some great news with this article. Towards the end of the movie, we were already aware that the saga wasn’t over yet. With the makers confirming a second installment to the film, we were excited to know how this new movie will be approached. If you are one of these people, rest assured knowing that you’re in luck. We’ve gathered some juicy details on A Quiet Place 2, and we’re more than excited to share them with you! Here goes!
A Quiet Place: The franchise so far
This is a horror-thriller film directed by John Krasinski. Krasinski, along with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, is also behind the writing. Platinum Dunes and Sunday Night Productions produce the movie. The cast of the film features the following stars in the lead roles:
- John Krasinski as Lee Abbott
- Emily Blunt as Evelyn Abbott
- Millicent Simmonds as Regan Abbott
- Noah Jupe as Marcus Abbott
- Cade Woodward as Beau Abbott
The cast had been lauded for their performance as every single one of the characters delivered. The characters and the personalities merged well together to create something intense and breathtaking. There is no doubt regarding the actors’ genius, but we were still taken aback by the performance they delivered in A Quiet Place.
The plot of the film takes place in a dystopian setting. The earth has been inhabited by noise-sensitive monstrous creatures that pounce on anyone that makes their presence felt most barely. In the midst of this, a man, his pregnant wife, and two children have to struggle to survive and make it out of the mess. They communicate with each other in sign language to escape attention from the creatures.
Towards the end of the first film, we saw Lee Abbott sacrifice himself to save his children. We also saw the birth of their child amidst the chaos. Just when we were about to lose hope, the family had come up with a way to outsmart the monsters. Ending the film here, the makers had left us awestruck and wanting to know more.
A Quiet Place 2: possible storyline and who is involved
The release date for the new installment was set to be September 6th, 2020 initially. The movie was all set to release in theatres, and the fans had all geared up for this. Unfortunately, the global health crisis had reared its ugly head just then and stalled this premiere. This had put the fans in a sour mood. After all, the first film had ended on a cliffhanger of sorts, and we just needed to know if the family makes it. Luckily for us, the situation has seemed to sort itself out, and we would get to witness the film on the big screens pretty soon. Presently, the new release date for the film has been set for the 23rd of April 2021. Although this is a considerable postponement, we are sure that the new film will be worth waiting for.
One of the most exciting things about the new installment is Cillian Murphy’s inclusion in the cast. Apart from this, the storyline will also see new changes. The family will now realize that the creatures aren’t their only threat and that they have so much more to fight and for us – so much more to look forward to.
