The highly-anticipated A Quiet Place sequel has a teaser currently playing in select theaters, but you can watch it online right now.
The preview is just shy of 30 seconds, teasing the original cast’s return as well as how long it has been since the last time we saw them. It also features the new title, A Quiet Place: Part II.
The short but sweet clip is just enough to get fans ready for the horror-thriller. Closed-eyed viewers will notice that Emily Blunt’s character has a wrapped up foot, indicating the sequel takes place shortly after the events of the first film. For those who forgot, she stepped on a rusty nail in an attempt to sneak into the basement in a nail-biting sequence with the monster. The brief teaser does a great job of getting the audience situated in the story and give a clear timeline of events.
Due to the rapid success of the first film, it is not all that surprising a sequel was put in development shortly after. Even though there weren’t plans to continue the story in the first place, the studio knew they had gold on their hands. Although they were going to make one with or without him, it is very reassuring that John Krasinski returns as the director and writer for A Quiet Place: Part II.
However, you can’t recreate the magic without the original cast. The upcoming film features the return of Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe. New additions include Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou in undisclosed roles.
