A QUIET PLACE Trailer Hints at Fears to Come

If A Quiet Place wasn’t on your radar before, it will be now, as a trailer released during the big game teased a post-apocalyptic, silent world in which making any noise whatsoever draws a supernatural evil. Fortunately for the family in question, their daughter is deaf, so they’re all conversant in sign language…which may save their lives.

It marks the first foray into genre for director John Krasinski, whose previously helmed films Brief Interviews With Hideous Men and The Hollars were comedy-dramas. And yes, the guy from The Office starring in and directing a horror film produced by Michael Bay is a decidedly odd pairing. Concurrent with the trailer, a new interview has been released with Krasinski to describe the film a little more.

Actress Millicent Simmonds, who plays the deaf daughter, is actually deaf, so that her real-life perspective could be brought to the situation, adding elements Krasinski might not have thought to include. Real-life malevolent supernatural forces are, we hope, not real.

There’s also a new poster, which manages to make bathtub time look like the least relaxing experience ever:

So far, the marketing is keeping the threat well hidden and mysterious. If the storyline is compelling and credible enough, maybe it will well and truly discourage people in movie theaters from talking. In the sequel, maybe there can be a force that only hunts you when you text. And make it a trilogy with something that only hunts people who kick seats.
