New York Becomes a Minefield of Deadly Sounds in ‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ Trailer

The streets of New York have never been quieter than they are in the latest trailer for A Quiet Place: Day One, the forthcoming prequel to the series of thriller films that turn sound into a deadly weapon. The new preview of the film, set for theatrical release on June 28, finds Lupita Nyong’o’s Sam and Joseph Quinn‘s Eric navigating an increasingly dangerous minefield as routes into and out of the city are destroyed.

The film’s main cast of characters — which also includes Alex Wolff and Djimon Hounsou — witness the horrors of societal collapse as grotesque creatures slaughter and slay everything within the general radius of a startling noise. In trying to stay alive, they learn how to use the deserted city to their advantage. In one scene, Quinn hurls a chunk of concrete through the window of an abandoned taxi cab, allowing himself and Nyong’o to make a break for it while the blind monsters are distracted.

The new trailer zeros in on this main cast of characters, expanding on the origin story established in the first preview that featured a call back to the first two A Quiet Place films, which starred John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. Krasinski serves as a producer on A Quiet Place: Day One, having crafted the film’s story alongside screenwriter and director Michael Sarnoski.

“It’s more of a [character] drama than anything,” Quinn told Entertainment Weekly earlier this year. “The script is obviously set in the world that we know, but it’s very much a film about these two characters who are lost and trying to negotiate their fates. There are also some wonderful other characters in the film who Sam encounters, but the bulk of it is Eric and Sam in their mutual acceptance of this bleak, more quiet, new reality.”

It marks a departure from the original framing of the franchise, which initially centered on Blunt and Krasinski’s characters trying their best to keep their family together in the midst of chaos and tragedy. “We don’t have that in this film,” Nyong’o added. “We have these disparate individuals who collide into each other’s lives, and it is at a very pivotal time for the world. How do they negotiate survival together? What we get is really interesting — and even surprising — chemistry in the characters that meet each other along the way.”
