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 »
Along with the the next 007 movie No Time to Die, the Paramount Pictures sci-fi horror sequel A Quiet Place II was among the first blockbusters to have their release date shifted when the coronavirus pandemic rapidly grew in the United States in March 2020. After initially being pushed to September 2020, Paramount set the movie for spring again in April 2021. But now that No Time to Die and a bunch of other spring/summer blockbusters have been delayed to later this year, A Quiet Place Part II is joining them. Read More »
(Welcome to The Streamer’s Guide, a new monthly feature recommending at-home viewing options from filmmakers with new movies arriving in theaters this month.)
March is when the movie year feels like it really kicks off in earnest. The studios start putting their best foot forward, not just taking out their trash. The indie labels put out some of prior year’s festival hits that weren’t quite built for an Oscar run – but are nonetheless incredibly impressive titles. Last year’s films finally start to surrender their screens at the multiplex and head to streaming, leaving audiences with many exciting new options.
This year, we’re getting two Cannes competition entries, a (potentially) bold reimagining of a Disney classic, a movie recently feared canceled, a sequel to one of 2018’s biggest original hits, a standout feature from an American indie legend and a movie about how a deerskin jacket turns a man on to crime. And that’s just what I covered here! Read on to find out not only what to see in March 2020 but also what you should be watching at home now to prepare for some of the month’s highest profile releases.

John Krasinski is back to direct as well.

Update: The Hollywood Reporter says Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe, the actors who played the children in the first A Quiet Place, are in talks to reprise their roles in the sequel alongside Emily Blunt. Our original article follows, and you can get more updated details below.
After almost a year of talking about how he was just going to return to write the script for A Quiet Place 2, John Krasinski is also coming back to direct the sequel to his 2018 horror hit. Plus, a new report says that Emily Blunt is coming back to appear as well. Learn what we know about A Quiet Place 2 below. Read More »
Utah native and rising young actor Millicent Simmonds first garnered a tremendous amount of attention last year, starring as the young deaf girl Rose in Todd Haynes’ delicate and melancholy Wonderstruck. The film was a big-screen debut for Simmonds, who is deaf in real life and had been acting on stage for many years prior in Utah.
But it’s her follow-up role as Regan Abbott in director/co-writer/star John Krasinki’s A Quiet Place earlier this year that got her noticed and praised by the world at large for her portrayal of a character who blames her own affliction for the death of a family member in a world where sound-triggered alien monsters attack with lightning speed. The film is especially interesting because the rest of Regan’s family — played by Krasinski, Emily Blunt and Noah Jupe — must adapt in many way to the world of a deaf person in order to be quiet. American Sign Language is the preferred method of communication and colored warning lights are used to warn other family members of impending danger back at the homestead.
The relationship between Krasinski’s father character, Lee, and Regan is strained, and the anxiety, guilt, and shame is expertly expressed by Simmonds, herself a dedicated advocate and activist for the deaf community, especially in the arts. /Film sat down with the 15-year-old actress in Chicago last week to discuss (through a Sign Language interpreter) the nuances of the role of Regan and her hopes for the types of roles she’s offered moving forward in her career. A Quiet Place will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, and on various streaming services on Tuesday, July 10.
