Super Bowl Spot for Thriller 'A Quiet Place' Directed by John Krasinski
"Could you survive?" Paramount has revealed the official 60-second Super Bowl TV spot for the thriller A Quiet Place, from director John Krasinski, who also stars in the movie. The film is about a family living quietly on a farm, keeping to themselves. Some kind of monsters have taken over the world but they only hunt by sound, so if you stay quiet they can't find you. This new spot doesn't show much more than the first teaser trailer, but I am SO into this, so much. Emily Blunt stars, along with Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds (who you may recognize as the fantastic deaf actress from Wonderstruck). This is a very cool TV spot with Krasinski being interviewed as well, but I wish it showed a bit more footage. Take a look below.
Here's the Super Bowl spot for John Krasinski's A Quiet Place, direct from Paramount's YouTube:
A family lives an isolated existence in utter silence, for fear of an unknown threat that follows and attacks at any sound. A Quiet Place is directed by American actor-turned-filmmaker John Krasinski, director of the films Brief Interviews with Hideous Men and The Hollars previously. This is his third feature film after two other. The screenplay is written by Scott Beck, John Krasinski, Bryan Woods. This was produced by Andrew Form & Bradley Fuller, along with Michael Bay for his horror production banner Platinum Dunes. Paramount Pictures will open John Krasinski's A Quiet Place in theaters everywhere starting on April 6th, 2018. It will first premiere at the SXSW Film Festival. How does that look? What do you think about this?
Too bad I don't handle horror/thrillers well, I like the premise, and Emily Blunt. And using a deaf actress to play a deaf character? Huzzah!

I want to see this but I don't do well with horror movies. Being this is a thriller... I might give it a shot, otherwise, I'll just have to wait until I'm sitting at home in a relaxed env. before I see this. 😛

I am not sure of the concept. I'm afraid it's not gonna play well. But it might be a fun watch, if nothing else ...

Yeah, you're probably right Bo. I certainly don't expect much from this. There are many better films than this one to see. I only said, it might be something fun. Which means that this film is very far from some imaginary watch list of mine. Anyway, thanks for your observation, insightful as always. I also agree with you about charming Emily Blunt, I would expect her to be participating in doing better films. Hopefully, that will happen. And of course, let me express the envy about meeting her. She definitely looks nice and pleasant person. But then again, and that's very well known around here, you are the man of the cinema world, so I guess meeting people from that world should be one of the bonuses you deserve. Besides all the knowledge you have about it ... Cheers ...
