a quiet place trailer

It’s become a steadily growing problem in the digital age: How do you sell a horror movie without revealing too much about the movie? Horror films are built on shocks and scares, and today’s spoiler-happy culture threatens that very foundation. But if you have an intriguing enough premise, you can get audiences in theaters, right?

A Quiet Place certainly has that intriguing premise down pat: Emily Blunt and John Krasinski play the parents of a family who are forced to live in utter silence for fear of being hunted by mysterious creatures drawn to noise. But as the taut horror thriller rolls out its trailers, it seems like it’s being forced to reveal more and more…including a glimpse at the terrifying monsters at the center of it all.

A QUIET PLACE trailer

John Krasinski made his directorial debut with the little-seen 2009 comedy Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, but it looks like he’s making the pivot to horror in the nearly silent upcoming film A Quiet Place.

Starring Krasinski himself, his wife Emily Blunt, and Wonderstruck breakout star Millicent Simmonds, A Quiet Place seems to follow the footsteps of fellow abstract horror film It Comes At Night, in which an unseen force terrorizes the inhabitants of an isolated house. The teaser trailer hints at a similar narrative but with a twist: the unseen monsters can only find you if you make a noise.

Morten Tyldum Directing Jack Ryan

This past Christmas, you might have seen Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt look glamorous in space in the sci-fi romance/action adventure Passengers. Apparently whatever Amazon, Platinum Dunes, Skydance Media and Paramount Television saw from director Morten Tyldum in that picture was enough to hire him for a new gig.

Norwegian director Morten Tyldum (who received an Oscar nomination for The Imitation Game) has been brought on board Amazon’s new action series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. This marks the first time the titular character, to be played by The Office star John Krasinski, from films such as The Hunt for Red October and Patriot Games will be featured in his own series.

Jack Ryan TV Series Plot - John Krasinski

Just last week, Amazon gave a full series order to Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, a new series focusing on the recurring CIA analyst character who has been played by the likes of Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine on the big screen. This time it will be The Office and 13 Hours star John Krasinski in the lead role as he is thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time.

All we previously knew about the show’s story was that it would see Jack Ryan uncovering a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale. But now John Krasinski has revealed some more details about the show, including where inspiration for the story will come from and just what kind of series we’re looking at in terms of scale.

John Krasinski Captain America

Way back in 2010, there were reports John Krasinski was the frontrunner to play Captain America. That casting didn’t pan out, obviously; Chris Evans has been the Captain America we know and love for three Cap movies and two Avengers films now. But until now, we never knew quite why. During a recent appearance on Conan, Krasinski playfully blamed Marvel star Chris Hemsworth — or more accurately, the incredibly fit body of Marvel star Chris Hemsworth — for losing him the part.  Read More »

Jack Ryan TV Series

Jack Ryan lives again. Last fall, Amazon put into developmentJack Ryan TV series based on Tom Clancy‘s bestselling series of books, and this past spring John Krasinski was confirmed for the lead role. Now they’ve ordered a 10-episode first season for the show, which hails from Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland. The plan was always for Jack Ryan to bypass Amazon’s usual pilot season and go straight to series, but this makes it official.  Read More »

Jack Ryan Amazon series

Carlton Cuse was on a Television Critics Association panel for his FX series The Strain and we had an interview with Cuse and The Strain author and executive producer Chuck Hogan. During the interview, we asked Cuse about his Jack Ryan TV series for Amazon, which would star John Krasinski as the CIA analyst of Tom Clancy’s novels. Cuse revealed that the show began as a straight adaptation of Clear and Present Danger.

“We started working on an adaptation on Clear and Present Danger and then decided it just felt dated,” Cuse said. “It really led to this revelation that the thing that defined Tom Clancy was that his thrillers were very much geopolitical thrillers of the moment. They really tapped into something that was going on in the world, so we’re doing an ISIS/ISIL type story. It feels very much connected to what’s happening in the world right now.”  Read More »
