A Quiet Place Part II comes to UK cinemas this week and we're as excited as you are to catch up with the Abbott family.
The release date was brought forward by four months last year and was originally meant to be out in September 2021. Its got to be one of the most delayed films due to COVID-19 and thankfully, we don't have to wait much longer to finally watch it.
Have a look at the trailer below.
A Quiet Place Part II is out in US cinemas on Friday 28th May and UK cinemas on Friday 4th June 2021, with a bank holiday preview on 31st May. All major cinema chains are now selling tickets online.
No. A Quiet Place Part II will not be streaming on Netflix. However, it will be available to stream on Paramount+, which is now available in the UK sometime in July/August.
The follow-up to the 2018 hit horror will see The Devil Wears Prada's Emily Blunt return as Evelyn alongside Millicent Simmonds as Regan and Noah Jupe as Marcus - as well as the new baby.
John Krasinski, the film's writer and director, will also be appearing in the film himself as Lee Abbott.
"Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence," reads the official synopsis.
"Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realise that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path."
John Krasinski, the film's director and writer, added that the sequel will see Blunt's character faced with the stark realisation that surviving, rather than thriving, is the name of the game.
"I love the idea of the first one, that Emily and I as characters were all about surviving versus the thriving. All [my character] wanted to do was survive," he told Total Film.
"And [her character] says, 'That's not enough. We have to thrive. We have to let these kids be whole human beings.' And after I'm gone, I'm loving seeing Emily really battle with that - that maybe survival was the way to go. And maybe this idea of thriving was too dangerous."
Critics have overall praised the delayed sequel to the hit 2018 horror. The Guardian gave the sequel 4 stars, calling it "absolutely sensational," while BBC Culture said it was "exhilarating entertainment."
"A Quiet Place Part II matches the tension and horror of the first movie and manages to deliver something new that expands the world, too," said Digital Spy, which also awarded it 4 stars. "Any doubts you had about a sequel will be silenced."
But The Times wasn't loving it so much. Awarding it 2 stars, it said it was "dramatically flabby and emotionally empty." Ouch. Empire was a little kinder, giving it an average 3 stars. It said the film "lack[ed] the smarts and novelty of its predecessor but it serves up strong set- pieces, Millicent Simmonds shines and Krasinski remains a director to watch."
We'll leave it to you to decide.
