Welp, thanks to the official release of a debut trailer for A Quiet Place Part II, our 2020 is off to the most terrifying start. After previously sharing a brief teaser video, the first full-length trailer for the film has arrived, and yes, it’s totally unsettling.
For the sequel, Emily Blunt returns to her role as Evelyn Abbott, and her character is once again joined by her children, Marcus Abbott (Noah Jupe) and Regan Abbott (Millicent Simmonds). Arriving in theaters on March 20, 2020, the sequel naturally picks up where the first film left off, and has the Abbott family attempting to outrun the monsters lurking and waiting to hear any sound of life.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look as if their continued escape will go as planned, and when the family meets some additional survivors, including two played by Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou, they’re warned that anyone else hiding might not be worth rescuing. The clip is only two minutes long, but it’s packed with heart-pounding action, including Evelyn accidentally triggering a trap that emits just enough sound to draw the attention of some monsters. Luckily, Cillian’s character is there to save the day.
An official synopsis for A Quiet Place Part II also warns of other dangers, reading, “Forced to venture into the unknown, they [the Abbotts] quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.” Those eager for a fright will have to wait and see what additional threats are out there when the film arrives later this year, but it is worth noting that a new movie almost didn’t happen. Director John Krasinski had explained his reasoning for previously avoiding a second film, saying, “My hope is people want to revisit this world and revisit those stakes and those rules to have to abide by. Most sequels are a hero and villain returning, but there’s no story behind it. It’s basically, ‘Let’s give the audience the character they want.’ And I think the brilliant thing about ‘A Quiet Place’ is there’s a world.” Consider us officially eager, and scared, to return to the Quiet Place world.
