A Quiet Place 2 : The Abbott Family Faces A New Kind of Terror
A Quiet Place 2, the much-talked about sequel to the surprise box-office horror hit “A Quiet Place,” written and directed by John Kransinski for Paramount Pictures, will be released ahead of the original May 15, 2020 playdate.
India will have the first encounter with the new kind of alien terror that Evelyn Abbott and her kids will face. A Quiet Place 2 will be shown at Indian theaters on March 18, 2020, while the March 20, 2020 showing in North American theaters include IMAX and Dolby Cinemas.
John Krasinski initially hesitated to take part in the production of the sequel, lest his work be branded as a “cash cow” and be criticized for loss of entertainment value. Kransinski said he practically Jedi-ed himself into envisioning a world that he could expand; in furthering the fear and terrifying ordeal survived by Evelyn, Regan and Marcus but without Lee Abbot.
Krasinksi said in an interview with EW that it was his wife’s (Emily Blunt’s) faith in his vision that he could write a chapter about a bigger world even without Lee Abbott in it. The screenplay writer in him made him realize that he does not have to follow the norm in sequels, where he has to bring back a new hero or villain in a new world. He said that the opposite is true for them, they already created an amazing world, where they can simply introduce any new hero or new villain.
Role Reprisals and New Characters
Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, as well as Noah Jupe will be reprising their roles as Evelyn, Regan and Marcus Abbot, wife and children of Lee Abbot, the role played by John Krasinski in the first A Quiet Place movie. Although Lee died while trying to save his children from the sightless-aliens, Krasinksi will still appear in the sequel to reprise his role by way of freshly-filmed flashback scenes.
Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou are the new additions. They will be joining the struggling Abbot family as survivors who have figured out a way of getting past the sightless but sound-sensitive aliens. Yet the group eventually realizes that the horrors of the post-apocalyptic world they currently live in goes beyond the vicious attacks of the sound-guided extraterrestrials.Tags: A Quiet Place 2, John Kransinski
