Things We Saw Today: Check Out the Final Trailer for A Quiet Place Part II

Plus romance novels, hunky Jigsaw, and more!

Paramount Pictures just dropped the final trailer for A Quiet Place Part II, the highly anticipated sequel to 2018 smash hit A Quiet Place. Much like the previous trailer, this one opens with a glimpse at the early moments of the invasion, with actor/writer/director John Krasinski briefly appearing in the flashback. The rest of the trailer sees the series’ signature monsters going after what’s left of humanity. Through it all, the Abbott family, lead by Evelyn (Emily Blunt), search for safe harbor from both monsters and humans alike.

The film picks up immediately after the events of the first film, as it joins the remaining members of the Abbott family: matriarch Evelyn , daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds), son Marcus (Noah Jupe), and the newborn baby. As the Abbotts search for a new home, they come across two survivors, played by Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou. But will they be friends or foes?

It’s been a long road for A Quiet Place Part II, which was set to debut on March 20, 2020. Of course, that schedule was scuttled as the world dealt with its own apocalyptic monster in the form of the pandemic. And while countless films set for 2020 and 2021 have made the move to streaming services and Video on Demand, Paramount has held on tightly to A Quiet Place Part II.

The film is set to premiere in theaters only on May 28, 2021. But unlike the typical 90-day exclusive theatrical window, A Quiet Place Part II will only be in theaters for 45 days, after which it will be available for streaming on Paramount+. The move is a bid to bring customers to the streaming service, but has caused a pay dispute between the studio and power couple Krasinski and Blunt. The duo have a contract that compensates them based on the film’s box-office performance. Those profits are now diminished thanks to the limited theatrical release. Apparently discussions between the two parties are ongoing.

Either way, this movie looks amazing and we’re excited to see it—in theaters or at home.
