John Krasinski proved with the smash hit A Quiet Place and its very successful sequel A Quiet Place Part II that he can direct the hell out of a movie. And Vanity Fair’s always-fascinating “Notes on a Scene” series shows us exactly how he does that. Krasinski, who wrote and directed A Quiet Place Part II, breaks down the opening scene of the horror sequel, which he revealed he sought to shoot in one-take to “never break the energy, so you always felt like you were a part of it.” Watch Krasinski’s A Quiet Place Part II scene breakdown below.

If there was any lingering concern that movie theaters would struggle to come back after the pandemic, this weekend’s box office debut of A Quiet Place Part II should put those to rest. The sci-fi horror sequel is on track to land an estimated $58.5 million through the Memorial Day holiday weekend, and it should come as no surprise that this will be a record-breaking box office haul for the industry during the coronavirus pandemic.

The first A Quiet Place was a phenomenon for a reason — its immaculate sound design and unique premise (a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by hearing-sensitive monsters) made for a horror film more akin to a roller coaster: immersive, transporting, and almost completely experiential. But strip A Quiet Place of its novelty, and what do you have? That’s the question that A Quiet Place Part II wrestles with.

After being delayed at the start of the coronavirus pandemic last year, A Quiet Place Part II is finally coming to theaters later this month. Paramount Pictures is so ready to release this movie that they bumped it up from the previously set fall release date to take advantage of the sparse summer blockbuster calendar, which may or may not be a risky box office decision (especially with the movie coming to Paramount+ just 45 days after hitting theaters). A new teaser has arrived to let audiences know the sequel is coming in just over a few weeks, and a full trailer is coming tomorrow. Read More »
A Quiet Place Part II was one of the first movies to have its theatrical release affected in real-time by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic — a splashy red carpet premiere was even held ahead of its March 2020 release before everything shut down shortly afterwards. Since then, Paramount has been bouncing the release date from month to month, finally settling it in September of this year. But, in a rare sight amid the pandemic, Paramount has actually pushed the A Quiet Place Part II release date up by a few months.

Now that Warner Bros. Pictures has pushed Tenet back to an unknown release date, Paramount Pictures is delaying some of their biggest movies scheduled for release later this year and bumping them back into 2021.
A Quiet Place Part II and Top Gun: Maverick, two anticipated sequels that would have already been in theaters by now but were delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic shutting down movie theaters, are both being delayed until next year. That’s also resulted in a shift for the return of the Jackass franchise. Paramount has also beefed up their schedule for the next couple years with dates for Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and the animated movies Under the Boardwalk and The Tiger’s Apprentice. Read More »
The lords and ladies of the mysterious MPAA have emerged from their castle on high to peer down and toss a pair of ratings to two upcoming movies. (I’m pretty sure that’s how the rating system works. Don’t fact check that.) 20th Century Studios’ long-delayed X-Men film The New Mutants and Paramount’s horror sequel A Quiet Place Part II have now both officially received PG-13 ratings, so you scheming youngsters out there can breathe a sigh of relief and scrap your plans to sneak in after buying tickets to Onward.

John Krasinski‘s A Quiet Place was an unexpected surprise in 2018, and the masterful way it weaponized sound in a story about a family trying to survive in an alien-infested America resulted in one of the most nail-biting movie experiences of the year.
