If you were looking for M. Night Shyamalan’s next movie, it’s Glass, the third movie in his Unbreakable trilogy, expected no earlier than 2019. But while you’re waiting for the next Shyamalan flick, we’re thinking the trailer for the supernatural thriller A Quiet Place–the preview being shown in front of current releases in theaters this week–is about as good as anyone could do to imitate The Sixth Sense director’s style and unusual brand of creepy storytelling.
The actor most people only know as the young office worker on the American version of The Office and the next actor to play Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan in this summer’s Amazon Prime series, John Krasinski is both directing, co-writing, and starring in the film. He’s playing a father opposite real-life wife Emily Blunt, genre star of Edge of Tomorrow, Looper, The Adjustment Bureau, The Huntsman: Winter’s War, and Sicario, and the actor everyone is waiting to see as Mary Poppins in Mary Poppins Returns this Christmas. In A Quiet Place the family is secluded and never makes a sound. They communicate in sign language because they believe a supernatural force is after them that is triggered by any noise. But what’s really going on? It looks like it can end up one of three ways: like Shyamalan’s Signs, The Happening, or The Village. Which will it be? Or do we have it all wrong?
Now being previewed in theaters, check out this nicely done trailer for A Quiet Place:
