A teaser for the first day at CinemaCon – Miscellaneous

John Krasinski unveiled the first-ever look of “A Quiet Place: Day One” at CinemaCon, the annual movie theater trade show in Las Vegas.

“One of the things I’ve had the most fun creating and expanding on the world of ‘Quiet Place’, and I couldn’t be more excited for this next episode,” Krasinki told the audience at Caesars Palace during Paramount’s presentation.

The story details of “Day One,” led by Lupita Nyong’o, have been mostly kept secret, but it comes from an original idea from Krasinksi, who directed and co-wrote the first two “A Quiet Place” films, starring Emily Blunt. The premise of the book deviates from the Abbott family and explains the origins of a post-apocalyptic world, where people must live in silence in order to hide from creatures that hunt for prey using sound.

“We follow Lupita Nyong’o’s character as she navigates the horrific first moments of an alien invasion in rowdy New York City,” teases Krasinski, who added the film, which just ended production about two weeks ago.

In the creepy, almost silent teaser of “Day One,” Nyong’o is seen wandering the streets of Manhattan, which has just suffered a mysterious attack. In the background, the familiar echolocation sirens of terrifying creatures catching sounds disturb the residents of the Big Apple and threaten their way of life. The minute-long teaser is also full of explosions and disturbing shots of survivors trying to hide – under cars or elsewhere – from the deadly monsters. Only some of them are successful.

Krasinski turned over directing duties to Michael Sarnoski, who also wrote the screenplay for Day One. After the footage was first shown to an excited audience, Krasinski joked that he was jealous that Sarnoski was able to direct the film. “He did an amazing job,” he said.

Krasinski had to hand in this camera, because he had to make the family-friendly musical, “If,” which was inspired by his love of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” He quipped, “I thought it was time to make a movie for my kids that they could watch before they turn 40.”

The prequel to A Quiet Place, which stars Joseph Quinn, Alex Wolfe, Djimon Hounsou, and Dennis O’Hare, is scheduled to hit theaters March 8, 2024.

Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller and Krasinski produced “Day One”. Alison Seeger and Vicky DeRoc were executive producers.

Krasinski’s 2018 movie “A Quiet Place” was a box office hit with $340 million worldwide. The sequel, A Quiet Place, was repeatedly delayed due to the pandemic, but eventually opened in May 2021 and has earned nearly $300 million globally.

During Paramount’s CinemaCon presentation, the studio’s head of domestic distribution encouraged theater owners to change the status quo. He said “we should try variable pricing”. “Let’s work together to get it right and pave the way for more moviegoers to see our films.”
