In an exclusive featurette, John Krasinski - who directed, co-wrote, and stars in the film - explains how he turned sound into a tool for ramping up tension in every single scene.
"I can not tell you how freaking dope that movie is", he continues. More recently the definition of an "Oscar movie" has evolved even further to allow masterful works in genre territory like Mad Max: Fury Road, Arrival, and Get Out to not only score recognition but also some major wins.
Paramount's A Quiet Place is now playing in theaters everywhere. It's a breath of fresh air, too, with its simple yet unique premise - if they hear you, they hunt you - and understated terror that doesn't rely on jump scares and cheap tricks to create an intense, horrifying experience that'll have you glued to your seat. A Quiet Place is being praised for being an original horror movie and practically plays out like a silent film, with a focus on masterful sound design that raises the heartbeat of viewers.
John Krasinski's new movie A Quiet Place may have soared to a $50 million opening at the box office this weekend - the year's second-best debut behind Black Panther - but he's clearly still most well-known for his role in The Office. There are so many things you could do. "We were in a restaurant, he was also in the restaurant".
Again, a sequel hasn't been confirmed just yet, but with the kind of money the pic's making and the buzz it's generated, we imagine Paramount's going to give it the go ahead in the very, very near future.
