The horror genre has been in an exciting renaissance for the past few years, with plenty of unique and critically acclaimed movies arriving in theaters. Actor John Krasinki made his wide big directing debut with 2018's A Quiet Place, which made a ton of money and even got a Best Sound Editing Oscar nomination. The highly anticipated sequel A Quiet Place: Part II recently released it's first trailer, and luckily we're already being treated to new footage thanks to the movie's Super Bowl advertisement.
Aside from the game itself, the Super Bowl is also known for its massively expensive commercials. Plenty of big brands and movies get on the action, and it looks like A Quiet Place: Part II is no exception. And it hit the internet early, check it out below.
This new clip opens on the same scene that we saw in A Quiet Place: Part II's first trailer. The flashback reveals the day that the sound-motivated aliens arrived on Earth, and the apocalypse began. But this time, we see it from the perspective of John Krasinski's Lee Abbot. That's right, the director/actor will indeed appear in the highly anticipated sequel.
The first trailer for A Quiet Place: Part II shows Emily Blunt's Evelyn driving through town, with son Marcus (Noah Jupe) in tow. She drives through town when Marcus spots his father, before an insane stunt involving a runaway bus happens. And now we can see what was happening for the other half of the Abbott family when the world ended.
On the other side of the street, Millicent Simmonds' Regan is in the car, while her father Lee is outside. Chaos ensues out of nowhere, when one of the alien creatures makes an attack just in front of Lee. He immediately turns around, sprinting back to his daughter. If only he knew what poor Evelyn would be dealing with at the very same time.
Aside from debuting John Krasinski's Lee, A Quiet Place: Chapter II's Super Bowl commercial also features a handful of exciting shots from the upcoming sequel. The first of which shows Evelyn at a gravesite in the bridge. She's visiting the place where her son Beau died in the first movie's opening sequence, although she's likely also mourning the rent loss of her husband as well. Lee heroically sacrificed himself to save his kids in A Quiet Place, before Evelyn and Regan figured out the creatures' weakness.
In addition to this new trailer, Paramount also revealed a behind the scenes featurette, teasing what's to come when A Quiet Place: Chapter II finally arrives in theaters. Check it out below.
Clearly A Quiet Place: Part II is going to greatly expand the world of the franchise. The Abbott family is forced to leave their home of safety and quiet, going out into what's left of society. This means they'll be facing human threats, as well as the monstrous aliens. Is there any hope for society once its been silenced? Only time will tell.
A Quiet Place: Part II will arrive in theaters on March 20, 2020. In the meantime, check out our 2020 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
