A Quiet Place franchise is a gift that keeps on giving, and its next film will be a true spectacle. The first trailer for A Quiet Place: Day One is here and it sees the Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o fighting for survival in the bustling streets of New York City.
This prequel film will explore the origin story of noise-sensitive monsters and explain “why our world went quiet.” The trailer opens with archival footage of the characters we met in the first two films, before introducing us to a group of new heroes, fighting for survival after the monsters take over New York.
Nyong’o told Entertainment Weekly that the character dynamic will be much different this time around because the story doesn’t center on a family determined to stick together.
“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 chemistry in the characters that meet each other along the way,” she explained.
Nyong’o will play Sam, a woman whose day trip to New York City turns into a nightmare, and she’ll be joined by Stranger Things’ Joseph Quinn, Hereditary’s Alex Wolff, and Djimon Hounsou, reprising his role from A Quiet Place Part II. A Quiet Place: Day One will open in theaters on June 28.
