A QUIET PLACE II Final Trailer Released – Marco Beltrami Returns to Score
Paramount has released their final trailer for A QUIET PLACE II, John Krasinski’s sequel to the 2018 horror thriller he co-wrote, directed, and starred in. Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe reprise their roles from the first film, with Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou joining the cast. Krasinski also returns from the first film in a small role, seen in flashback sequences set before the first film.
Synopsis of the new film: Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.
Composer Mario Beltrami returns to give the new film its score having composed the music for the 2018 original film (see my interview with Marco about scoring A QUIET PLACE in my April 2018 Soundtrax column) -rdl.
Completed in 2020, A QUIET PLACE II film had its world premiere in New York City on March 8, 2020, and after a year’s worth of postponements due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is scheduled to be theatrically released in the United States on May 28, 2021, the start of the Memorial Day holiday weekend in the US. It will also be available to stream on Paramount+ for 45 days after its theatrical debut.
