John Krasinski announced the end of filming for the upcoming A Quiet Place 2 by posting a sweet shot of him holding hands with wife Emily Blunt, who is reprising her role in the highly anticipated sequel. “Well… that’s a wrap on #PartII See you on March 20th!” Krasinski wrote alongside the shot. Krasinski once again wrote and directed the sequel, though he likely won’t appear in the movie since his character met a gut-wrenching death in the 2018 thriller. RELATED: Emily Blunt: People Told Me John Krasinski and I Would Divorce by End of Filming A Quiet Place The actor, 39, first teased his idea for the sequel in an interview he did with Deadline along with Blunt, 36, earlier this year. “The idea for it is pretty simple,” Krasinski said of the sequel. “I’m writing now — I don’t have it fleshed out — but the thought that occurred to me, that really excited me about it, was that most sequels are about the … [Read more...] about John Krasinski and Wife Emily Blunt Hold Hands as He Reveals A Quiet Place 2 Is Done Filming
Emily blunt about a quiet place
By Preston Wilder If you can’t say something nice, goes the phrase, don’t say anything at all. Or, in movie terms: if your dialogue is liable to be cheesy and embarrassing, better to have no dialogue at all – or at least, as little as possible. That’s the guiding principle in A Quiet Place, with a plot that might’ve been reverse-engineered to fit this particular gimmick. John Krasinski (who also directed) and Emily Blunt are the parents of a young rural family in a dystopian near-future overrun by monsters. The monsters, great spindly insect-like creatures, are lightning-fast but also blind, responding only to sound – so the way to avoid them is to stay very, very quiet. No talking (except in sign language), no crying, no loud toys or beeping electronics. If you must play Monopoly, make sure you roll the dice on the carpet. “Big sounds” are forbidden in this world – a fitting stricture in a film that makes a virtue of its smallness, … [Read more...] about Film review: A Quiet Place ***, The Hurricane Heist **
Video PUBLISHED: 14:30 26 April 2018 | UPDATED: 14:30 26 April 2018 Ben Jolley Emily Blunt in A Quiet Place Archant Silence really is deafening in ‘A Quiet Place’ - one of the best horrors of recent years. Full of suspense though mostly silent, the deeply affecting thriller follows a family living desperately and barefooted, in a post-apocalyptic world where any noise wakes a blood-lusting creature. With a stunning orchestral score that’s packed with heartache overlaid for the viewer’s ears only, there’s little to no talking in most of the film - which makes the acting even more impressive. Only able to whisper and use sign language, it’s the pained facial expressions from parents Emily Blunt and John Krasinski that do all the talking - emotional, and showing a longing to escape, the performances are immediately believable and compelling. As are the young brother (Noah Jupe) and older sister (Millicent Simmonds); who long for a normal … [Read more...] about A Quiet Place review
“A Quiet Place” was written, directed and produced by John Krasinski and also stars Krasinski, along with Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe. The film is about a family who is forced to live in total silence in order to hide from mysterious beings that attack strictly by sound. Krasinski is known by most, including myself, as Jim Halpert from “The Office,” so the idea that this comedic actor could pull off directing and starring in a horror film seemed far-fetched at first. However, the trailers for this film looked outstanding, and Jordan Peele did something very similar just a year ago with “Get Out,” so I came in hopeful that Krasinski could prove his directing ability in his first horror effort. The Good “A Quiet Place” might be Krasinski’s creation, but as far as acting goes, it was Blunt’s movie. Blunt was outstanding from start to finish despite having the most challenging role. She is the one that … [Read more...] about Movie review: ‘A Quiet Place’ is a tense, incredibly well-crafted thriller
**WARNING: MILD SPOILERS** Written and directed by John Krasinski and starring himself and his lovely wife Emily Blunt, it is set in a world where alien monsters have invaded earth and if you make a noise they'll hunt you and eat you. John and Emily and their kids are living in this tense environment so it's not spoiling anything to say that while we're in their company, things are quiet. Things are, in fact, silent, and this is something viewers should know before stocking up on crackly packs of crisps, crunchy tortillas, popcorn etc. Many people cannot tolerate movie theatres at the best of times thanks to loud eaters, heavy breathers, and paper cracklers (the worst), but when the movie is so quiet you can hear a pin drop, these traits are intolerable to even the most tolerant. Unfortunately, the warnings come too late for some irked movie-goers who took to Twitter to share their fury. Others tried to share their wisdom, earned the hard way... A heads up - if you go and … [Read more...] about Moviegoers are losing it over people making noise during A Quiet Place
PUBLISHED: 08:58 16 April 2018 | UPDATED: 08:58 16 April 2018 John Krasinski as Lee Abbott and Noah Jupe as Marcus Abbott in A Quiet Place. Picture: PARAMOUNT/JONNY COURNOYER Archant Perhaps best known for his comedic work in the US version of The Office (2005-2013), John Krasinski is not an artist typically associated with the horror genre; yet with his third feature as a film-maker the actor-director has delivered a thrilling, nerve-shredding horror. Set in the near future the film focuses on the Abbott family- Lee (Krasinski), Evelyn (Emily Blunt), Marcus (Noah Jupe) and Regan (Millicent Simmonds) - who are forced to live in silence in order to hide from creatures that hunt by sound. With little spoken dialogue throughout the film’s 95 minute running time – what there is of it barely above a whisper - Ethan Van der Ryn and Erik Aadahl’s sound design is extraordinary, much of the film’s terror stemming from a creaking floorboard or running water – … [Read more...] about Have you seen John Krasinki’s A Quiet Place film?
