The final trailer for John Krasinki's A Quiet Place praises the film as "terrifying" and "a remarkable achievement," and includes other positive quotes from reviews of the horror film.
The trailer highlights the movie's plot, which revolves around a family that tries to live a quiet and peaceful existence, away from the hassle and noise of the outside world. But terror strikes when a group of mysterious creatures invades their world, monsters that respond solely to sound. If these monsters hear noise, they hunt it. The parents must protect their children from this new and unknown threat by living in complete silence. In the trailer, the creatures are not seen, but they make a skittering sound as they hunt for more prey. However, this clip stands out from previous trailers because it also features the first bits of dialogue heard during the movie's marketing campaign.
Paramount released the final trailer today just before its arrival in movie theaters on April 5. Not only does Krasinki co-star in the movie, but he also re-wrote the script and directed it, as well as served as its executive producer. Krasinski previously directed 2009's Brief Interviews with Hideous Men and 2016's The Hollars. The movie is unique in the way that it tackles sound because much of the film is silent due to its plot.
Because of the nature of the movie and what little the trailers reveal about the monsters, moviegoers already speculate that A Quiet Place is actually part of the Cloverfield franchise, perhaps a secret entry as part of that franchise's mythology. Some of these theories started with the knowledge that Krasinski was once attached to work on the most recent Cloverfield movie, The Cloverfield Paradox. The creatures of A Quiet Place also resemble the monsters seen in Cloverfield movies. The fan theories even suggest that Molly from The Cloverfield Paradox is actually the missing daughter of the parents from A Quiet Place. This is all speculation, of course, and it's likely that no such connection exists.
A Quiet Place currently has 100% on Rotten Tomatoes after receiving raves out of its premiere at last month's SXSW festival. Between the excellent word-of-mouth, and marketing that plays up the scares and suspense, the film should fill plenty of seats in theaters - regardless if it's connected to Cloverfield or not.
