A Quiet Place 2 is the sequel to the box office hit A Quiet Place. The first movie depicted the Abbott family trying to survive an invasion of monsters. The second movie will not only continue the story beyond where the first left off, but also flashback before the time of the first movie.

These monsters have a tremendous sense of hearing and lack a reliable sense of sight and seek to harm anything that makes a sudden noise. In the second movie, the Abbott family must continue to survive in a new location facing brand unknown threats and trying to survive with new companions. 

“I want to see what happens with the mom and kids, without their dad,” junior Kiet Doan said. “Because that’s what happened was in the first movie their dad did most of the work.”

When audiences watch movies, they are able to connect with the characters. These connections can influence the audience to watch a sequel of the movie franchise. A Quiet Place creates a powerful family dynamic that causes the audience to create emotional connections, thus leading them to want to watch a sequel.

One of the things I’m most proud of is that people have said that our movie is one you have to see all together.”

— John Krasinski

“When the movie starts you don’t know this family,” Kiet Doan explained, “but as the movie progresses the more you care for every character in the movie.”

The director John Krasinski delayed the release of the movie due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19, also known as coronavirus. 

“I’m disappointed to hear that the movie release has been delayed,” junior Ezra Budish said.

John who? posted a tweet saying, “One of the things I’m most proud of is that people have said that our movie is one you have to see all together,” John went on to explain his plan for when he will release the movie. “As insanely excited as we are for all of you to see this movie… I’m gonna wait to release the film til we CAN all see it together.”

The release of A Quiet Place 2 was a highly anticipated and due to this outbreak the anticipation could be lost altogether or grow to new heights. Although the movie hasn’t been released yet, it is still a must-see. Based on the reviews of the first movie and the trailer, hopes are high the sequel will be just as good.
