As a part of the ongoing forthcoming film presentations at CinemaCon in Las Vegas this year, Paramount Pictures revealed the title of the next installment of John Krasinski’s horror franchise. Titled A Quiet Place: Day One, the spin-off film teases a prequel story set right as the aliens arrive on Earth as revealed during a sizzle reel at Paramount’s CinemaCon panel.
This new title certainly suggests the possibility of an entire film taking place at the earliest moments of the invasion. As Collider notes, the first A Quiet Place followed a family trying to survive after vicious aliens started to roam the planet. These aliens are entirely blind, but they are extra sensitive to sounds, forcing humans to develop clever ways to move on with their lives in safety. Paramount started to develop a franchise around the blind aliens, with Krasinski returning as director of a sequel released last year. Krasinski is also set to helm a third chapter in the leading franchise, currently in early development and aiming at a 2025 release.
