The sequel to 2018's unexpectedly huge horror A Quiet Place is on its way, and we've now got a first-look image to prove it ahead of its release in spring.
The teaser image, first shared with Total Film magazine for its new 2020 preview issue, shows Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe as Evelyn and her two kids (three, if you include the swaddled baby she's carrying in her arms).

Krasinski - whose character died at the end of the first film - told Total Film that the sequel will see Blunt's character struggle with the concept of thriving versus surviving - understandably so, if it's anywhere near as stressful as the original instalment was.
He said: "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.
"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."
Filming for the sequel wrapped back in September, having been underway since July.

Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe will be reprising their roles, while new recruits include Cillian Murphy (Peaky Blinders) and Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator) - although we've got no idea who they will be playing just yet.
During an interview on The Ringer's The Big Picture podcast, Krasinski said of the thought process behind his sequel: "Why I had this little idea that's now gotten bigger is most sequels are about a villain returning or a hero returning, and you have to build this entire world around just the idea that I have a hero or a villain.
"That's a lot, and I think that's where a lot of sequels go wrong because as much as you love that hero or villain, the entire thing is fabricated just to make that person work.
"[With A Quiet Place 2], we have the world. So it's actually the world that's built, it's the idea that the rest of the world is going through this exact same experience. Are there other people that have to survive like this? It's that idea of living through the set of circumstances, not again in the same way obviously, but exploring it more. You only got to do it intimately for a small amount of time, so what happens next?"
A Quiet Place 2 hits cinemas on 20 March 2020.
