A Quiet Place trailer: The high-concept horror gets an A-list spin

Since before Netflix surprise-released The Cloverfield Paradox on the night of the Super Bowl, fans have been speculating that John Krasinski’s silent apocalyptic horror A Quiet Place might also share the same cinematic universe.

It might seem crazy that we’d get two Cloverfield trailers on the same night and two films released within two months of each other, but this theory does actually carry some weight. There’s even some behind-the-scenes evidence to support the theory.

This trailer for John Krasinski’s new horror film ‘A Quiet Place’ will age you 15 years

A Quiet Place stars John Krasinski and Emily Blunt as parents living in a silent apocalypse. If they or their children make a sound, the blind monsters that destroyed the world will hunt them down.

The premise makes it seem a lot more like M. Night Shyamalan’s Signs or The Village than it does some kind of kaiju movie. But 10 Cloverfield Lane proved that just about any type of monster horror can fit the Cloverfield mold, especially when the events in The Cloverfield Paradox shattered reality across dimensions, causing giant monsters to appear in some dimensions and weird aliens in others.

Emily Blunt plays a lead character opposite Krasinski in ‘A Quiet Place’.The world of A Quiet Place might just be yet another dimension influenced by the Shepard particle accelerator that malfunctions in The Cloverfield Paradox.

Some fans have thought A Quiet Place seemed Cloverfield-worthy since it was first announced:

Are people really now starting to figure out that a quiet place might slightly not really but could be but less likely be a cloverfield movie? pic.twitter.com/fjyD2Y21yK

It might even make fans more excited to see what Jim from The Office is up to in the silent apocalypse.

I WAS ALREADY INTERESTED IN SEEING A QUIET PLACE AND I’M NOT EVEN THAT INTO HORROR MOVIES BUT WHAT IF MY ATTRACTION TO IT WAS A SUBCONSCIOUS MESSAGE THAT IT’S ACTUALLY CLOVERFIELD 4 I AM FREAKING OUT MAN

All of the Cloverfield movies thus far, including Paradox (before they sold it to Netflix, anyway), come from Paramount Pictures.

Interestingly, in April 2016 John Krasinski was originally attached to God Particle (which of course became The Cloverfield Paradox) in the role that went to Chris O’Dowd. Is it possible that J.J. Abrams secretly maneuvered Krasinski towards A Quiet Place instead to build that corner of the Cloverfield multiverse?

By now, fans are onto the fact that every time Bad Robot buys the rights to a script, it becomes a Cloverfield movie. That’s what happened with both 10 Cloverfield Lane and The Cloverfield Paradox. That didn’t happen at all with A Quiet Place, but wouldn’t that make for the perfect cover story?

We’ll have to wait for A Quiet Place to premiere at SXSW on March 9 before we hear more about its place in the universe.

You know the silent bits in horror movies? Those quiet, heart-pounding moments where you don't know what's about to happen, but you know it's going to be BAD?

A Quiet Place marks John Krasinski's third foray into directing, and he also wrote the script and stars opposite his real-life wife, Emily Blunt.

But rather than give us the rom-com of my dreams, Krasinski has decided to send us to early graves with a sweat-inducing tale of a post-apocalyptic family whose only hope at survival is staying quiet.

It's unclear exactly what will occur if any of them make a sound, but judging by the dinosaur-sized claw marks on the wall and the panicked looks when a kid's toy spaceship makes a bloop-bloop sound, it ain't good!

"The idea of silence can be jarring in many ways, and so off-putting, that it gives the movie a tone that other movies don't have," Krasinski, 38, told IGN.

And to make sure that he and Blunt were fully prepared for their voiceless roles, they developed a fun routine at home.

"We had a joke in our house," he said, "when we were shooting and I was writing the script where any time there was a noise my wife and I would just quietly turn to each other and say 'You're dead'."
