On May 20th, A Quiet Place Part II will continue the story of the Abbott family and they're fight for survival against an alien menace that attack anything that makes a sound. Total Film goes on-set of A Quiet Place Part II to learn more about the film. However, this article does not give much info on the movie at all.
For an article about A Quiet Place Part II, most of the article talks about the first film, A Quiet Place, and how it became an unexpected smash hit. The movie was produced with a budget of $17 million and made a total of $340 million. The movie was given praise on the story and using any noise to trigger the audience in getting scared. Silence is key to this family's survival, but any noise can attract any of the aliens to their home.
That is all fine to talk about at the beginning, but I want more of the meat and potatoes information. I want to know more about A Quiet Place Part II and that is what Total Film should be talking about. However, this article really drops the ball as very little information is given.
The article does talk about Cillian Murphy and his character, Emmett, on page 63. He is the guy we saw in the trailer that saved the Abbott family from being chased by one of the aliens. We learn about Emmett that he is not trust people very much especially when he says, "The people that are left are not the kind of people that are worth saving." Meaning that these creatures are not the only things that the Abbott family should be worrying about. The article even mentions about how the movie will show the a community that is fractured. The first movie gave an idea that there are survivors out there hiding, but it seems like trust is put into question in the sequel.
Another interesting thing is about Noah Jupe's character, Marcus. In the article Jupe states, "Well in the first one, it was a lot of, "You can't go here, you can't go off the sand path." And then in this one, if someone is leaving the sand path, it's almost like leaving the world of safety. It's stepping away from that, and going out into the world as a human being without protection and Marcus is kind of becoming a man." Just from that, it sounds like Marcus feels as though he needs to grow up quickly. It would make sense since the father in the first movie died (spoilers!) saving Marcus and Regan from one of the aliens. With his father gone, he now has this responsibility he puts on himself to take care of the family. Marcus does get seen a lot in the trailer and it makes me wonder if he will have a bigger role in the sequel.
