Cillian Murphy looks terrified in the final trailer for A Quiet Place Part II

Plus we get a lot more footage of the day of the event that kicked the whole thing off.

When it was released in April 2018, nobody expected A Quiet Place to be as successful - and as brilliantly scary - as it was. Written and directed by John Krasinski, who co-starred with his wife Emily Blunt, the creature feature banked over $340 million on a $17 million budget, and scored a mighty impressive 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.

The sequel was announced before too long, with Krasinski back in the director's chair, and reprising his role from the first movie, with the events of the sequel to take place both before and after the events of the original.

Blunt is also back, with new cast members Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou joining them, as the family try to travel beyond the protected farm they called home for so long, only to discover that the murderous creatures in the wild aren't the only threats they'll be facing.

The film actually had its world premiere in New York in March 2020, with the film on the precipice of being released... and then Covid happened.

Considering the first movie was one of those cinematic experiences you'll never forget - the deafening silence in the screen just as the scary bits arrived is unparalleled by pretty much any other movie before or since - you can totally understand why Paramount decided to keep it for when cinemas can finally reopen, as opposed to putting it out on PVOD in the year-and-a-bit since it was supposed to arrive.

And now, finally, with the end of Covid somewhat in sight, we're finally getting the sequel, and Paramount have celebrated by releasing the movie's final trailer.

A Quiet Place Part II is due to arrive in some parts of the world on Friday, 28 May, and should be hitting cinemas in Ireland once they're allowed to safely reopen.
