New A Quiet Place trailer sheds light on film’s dystopian setting
nStephanie Petit February 12, 2018 03:15 PM John Krasinski‘s younger child already has an ear for music — and even he is getting schooled.

The 38-year-old actor appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show, where he spoke about being father to his two daughters with wife Emily Blunt: Violet, 18 months, and Hazel, 4 this week.

“They’re amazing. They’re so much fun,” he said of the girls. “I feel like every time people talk about their kids on this, people are like, ‘We all have kids, ugh.’ But they’re amazing, and they’re geniuses.”

Krasinski then tells a hilarious story about Violet, explaining that he was singing a song while trying to entertain her on a rainy day. “There’s this song for kids that goes, ‘Rolly polly, rolly polly,’ ” he explains before turning to the audience and joking, “You guys don’t know it? Oh, that’s weird.”

“And all of a sudden Violet, who is 18 months, goes, ‘Yeah, baby,’ ” The Office alum continues, dropping to a lower octave. “That deep! And I was like, ‘Emily, first of all, has she heard the song before? Second of all, what was that?’ And she’s like, ‘I have no idea.’ ”

Both parents were left in the dark for three days on the matter, until they started listening to the song in the car.

“At the end of the song, this guy just comes in and goes, ‘Yeah, baby,’ ” Krasinski says. “And I’m not kidding, she looked at me like, ‘Are we good?’ That’s what that was. Like, ‘Dad, you don’t get me already.’ ”

WATCH: “A Quiet Place” raises up the terror in new trailer

It seems that Krasinski is happy to listen to his daughters, especially when it comes to his facial hair. He was rocking a beard during his appearance on the talk show, which he originally grew out for his new film A Quiet Place, a new thriller that he also directed and stars in alongside Blunt, 34.

“They love it,” the actor said of his daughters’ opinion on the beard. “I thought they’d be terrified, but when I shaved it after the movie — in the movie, I have the beard — my 3-year-old said, ‘What happened to the beard?’ I said, ‘I shaved it. It’s so smooth, you can touch it.’ She went, ‘Put it back.’ ”

Although Krasinski joked “I’m not a LEGO guy, I can’t just snap it back,” he clearly took her advice.

In A Quiet Place, something terrible has been unleashed, forcing Blunt, Krasinski, and their three children to live in isolation. The movie’s monster(s) can sense even the slightest sound, no matter how small. Because of this, the family must take insane precautions to mask all their movements. But in spite of all their super-human efforts, Blunt and Krasinski still can’t keep their family safe from whatever lurks out there in the world, waiting to strike.

A new international trailer for the aptly-named A Quiet Place has debuted via Paramount Pictures Germany. The new, longer clip features footage not seen in the Super Bowl spot, offering greater insight into the film’s incredibly high-tension premise. Watch the trailer in the space above.

The trailer opens with Emily Blunt looking at a haphazard array of monitors, witnessing news reports of some kind of terrible apocalypse. We then see a series of images setting up the movie’s premise. Something really bad is out there. To protect themselves from this threat, the family must speak in sign language and walk on sand trails to muffle their footfalls. Quickly, we learn just how perilous the situation is. One of the children becomes absent-minded for just a second and falls behind the others. The sound of the kid’s toy immediately rouses something in the woods, and panic ensues.

Just what sort of monster lurks out there in the darkness? Our only clues are a fleeting glimpse of a shape, and some giant claw marks tearing up a wall. To make matters even scarier, Blunt is pregnant with another child. A poignant moment shows Blunt listening to the sounds of her baby with a stethoscope. Later, we see Blunt climbing into a tub, apparently going into labor. This entire premise seems designed to tear the heart right out of anyone who has kids, and has experienced what it’s like to feel that the world around them is full of dangers they are helpless to protect their children from.

John Krasinski has certainly handed himself a tough assignment for his third feature film as a director. Much of the movie obviously plays out in silence, an approach which could try some viewers’ patience. A Quiet Place on the surface has the look of a potentially effective horror thriller, but we’ll have to wait and see what Krasinski and company have actually delivered.
