Over the last few weeks it’s become very clear that John Krasinski, who is known for his character on The Office and smaller film roles, has absolutely crushed his directorial debut A Quiet Place. Early reviews for the new horror thriller are claiming it as a masterpiece, even calling Krasinski himself as a horror master filmmaker. The trailers for the movie has been quite thrilling to this point, I must say. I’m always a sucker for a great horror film, but all this early praise has been pretty overwhelming. Can it really be that good?
My excitement for the film has hit an all-time high, and I’m hoping that it lives up to my pretty high expectations. I’m a huge fan of Krasinski as an actor and am very excited to see what he can do behind the camera. As for his wife, my fondness of her is well known. While she hit a bit of a bump after a stellar run a few years ago, Emily Blunt is one of the best working actresses today and I can’t wait to see what she does inside a genre like this one.
The film is now just over a week away and in anticipation, a new batch of images and official clips have been released to try to sway those who may not be looking forward to it as much as I or others are (how dare you…). Beware, as the clips may feature a moment or two that you want to see in theaters, hence why I won’t be watching them myself. So click play at your own risk! Directed by John Krasinski and also starring Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds, A Quiet Place is released on April 6th.
