The killer trailer for writer-director John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place Part II with Emily Blunt hit earlier this month. Check it out HERE if you missed it. And today we have word from Blunt herself that the crazy bus stunt in the trailer was shot for real with zero CGI!
Blunt tells Ellen: “I’m really proud of John for that shot because it was choreographed for two weeks. That is not a CGI bus, that is a real bus. And then there’s a stunt driver on the top of the car. And so really, my life is in his hands. So I said to him before, I looked up at him and I went ‘Well, I hope you’re good because my life is in your hands.’ And he just lent down and he went ‘I’m the best.’ And he really was. But it’s sort of terrifying. I’ve never done a stunt like that.”
While Krasinski returns to write and direct A Quiet Place Part II he will (obviously?) not be returning as an actor. But all is not lost as original stars Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe will return along with newcomers such as Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou.
Here’s the sequel’s synopsis: Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.
Written and directed by John Krasinski based on characters created by Bryan Woods & Scott Beck it is produced by Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, and Krasinski. Allyson Seeger, Joann Perritano, and Aaron Janus serve as executive producers. It stars Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, and Djimon Hounsou.
Paramount moved A Quiet Place Part II from May 15, 2020, to March 20, 2019.
