“A Quiet Place” Is A Noisy Hit! Bravo To John Krasinski And Emily Blunt For 2018’s Best New Thriller!

“A Quiet Place” Roars At The Box Office!

If you want to see one of the best films of 2018 so far, get out of your seats and head to “A Quiet Place”, directed by and starring John Krasinki, alongside his wife Emily Blunt.

Critics are loving this movie, and so are preview audiences: the film opened last night to more than $4.5 million – on a Thursday night preview night!

Here is the plot in a nutshell:

A family is forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound. Yes, you can’t make a sound because, as the film’s tagline says:

“If they hear you, they hunt you.”

Here is the trailer:

Bravo to Krasinski and Blunt, two popular Actors who have now made a great new thriller.

While it seems natural that Krasinski would cast his own wife in the role, he once said in an interview with E!:

“I would love to direct Emily Blunt, [But] I’d rather act with Emily than direct. I don’t know if I need that responsibility. She’s so good and I’d be so scared to screw it up, but [I’d be] happy to be in scenes with her. That would be really fun. We’re always up for doing something. It’s just got to be the right thing…Give us a good one! I would love it!”

Well, he got a good one, and they made a great film – let me know if you see it this weekend!

  1. My heart is racing just watching the trailer!

  2. I loved this movie. Was so intense and involving. Both terrifying and heartfelt.

  3. I don’t think this is out in South Africa yet, John. I will keep an eye out for it.

  4. I got to see it at a preview screening and review it. I liked it.

  5. We went to see this today! I’m so glad that we made it to the theater! I’m surprised by how much they can put into a film without a lot of speaking parts. As well as how dramatic it can be! I loved this movie!

  6. I watched this yesterday and was more than a little scared at first but I absolutely loved it. What a brilliant film!! John Krasinski has done an amazing job

  7. Thanks for the review, I am looking forward to seeing it, as the dynamic of them acting together will be something I think. . I like both of them and was pleased when they became a couple.

  8. Don’t know if I’ll get to the theater to watch it, but I love Jay and Emily and the trailer is certainly interesting…Did you see it and like it?

  9. I was worried about this one because I still can’t picture Jay Krasinski in such a serious, thrilling role! I definitely plan to check it out!

  10. I just saw the trailer for this and it looks so good, can’t wait to watch it.

  11. It has had some good reviews here, but being forced out of the local regional cinemas by family films, like ‘Peter Rabbit’!
    I might have to wait for the DVD.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  12. I’m dying to see this! I’ve only heard great things 🙂

    • When people ask why more good movies aren’t being made, it’s because the market is so difficult – breaking through the superheroes that clog the theaters – I like them, but smaller films like this need attention as well and I am happy it’s turning out to be a big hit! GREAT reviews!
