I don’t want to be that person to ruin a movie, but spoiler alert: John Krasinki’s character dies in the first movie “A Quiet Place.” Basically how it goes down: he sacrifices himself for his two children so they can escape the monsters that hunt purely by sound.
If that sentence didn’t make any sense, you just have to go watch the movie. But the moral of the story: John’s character, Lee Abbott, died. So, when the sequel was announced to come out later this year, fans didn’t expect him to be a part of it.
But, the new movie trailer is surprising fans.
The trailer seems to show a flashback moment — to before the monsters began to take over — and Lee is walking around town, talking. Meaning, it’s a hard callback to a time before the invasion that they are trying to survive in the first movie.
John Krasinski returned to the set to continue directing the pair of movies, but this appearance in the second film was a huge shock for fans.
Besides that information — and now the knowledge that he’ll be returning to the big screen for some pre-invasion acting — details on the plot haven’t been released.
While he was writing the script, John gave some information on what kind of things he wanted to include in the sequel.
Krasinski did elaborate about the film to Deadline saying, “The idea for it is pretty simple. I’m writing now — I don’t have it fleshed out — but the thought that occurred to me, that really excited me about it, was that most sequels are about the return of a hero or a villain. You take this character that people loved once and you bring them back, and you have to create a new world around them. We have the exact opposite setup. We have the world, and you can drop whoever you want into that world and everyone feels connected to it.”
The movie hits theaters March 20. Check out the trailer below.
