Day 1 trailer reminds us that silence is golden

The latest trailer for “A Quiet Place: Day One” honors the buzz generated by this year’s CinemaCon, where /Film’s Ryan Scott reported that the new film looked “HUGE. Much bigger than the first two. “Rather than focusing on a family living in a rural area far from everything, “Day One” takes place in one of the busiest and noisiest cities in the world: New York. Lupita Nyong’o plays Sam and is joined by “Stranger Things” favorite Joseph Quinn as Eric, as the two team up in this life-or-death race against the creatures. Djimon Hounsou returns as Henri, who we know from “Part II” who later becomes the leader of a small island colony of survivors who have not been touched by the creatures and can therefore exist with sound. Maybe this new movie will show us how he got there and why we didn’t see Sam with him in the second movie.

Also featuring “Pig” and “Hereditary” star Alex Wolff and “Bazigaga” and “Omen” star Eliane Umuhire. But what might excite fans of the series the most is that “Day One” appears to offer our best look at the creatures, canonically called “Death Angels.” The threat of their presence was a huge source of tension in the first two films, but this prequel appears to be a monster movie in its own right and doesn’t hold back.

“A Quiet Place: Day One” arrives in theaters on June 28, 2024.
