A Quiet Place: Day One Trailer Reveals The Day The Aliens Came To Earth

The prequel movie arrives in theaters this June.


The first trailer for A Quiet Place: Day One has arrived, and it shows the exact moment the aliens came to Earth and made people stop talking to stay alive.

A Quiet Place: Part II began with an unsettling flashback of the day the aliens came to Earth, but Day One is entirely about the arrival of the evil creatures and the fallout that ensued. For anyone just catching up, the aliens in the A Quiet Place series are blind but have extremely good hearing, prompting people to do whatever they can to stay quiet.

In the trailer we see Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o strolling peacefully through a busy city street with her cat in her arms as she looks to the sky and sees the aliens crash into Earth. It gets pretty intense from there.

Day One also stars Stranger Things actor Joseph Quinn and Djimon Hounsou, who appeared in A Quiet Place: Part II. There are multiple sequences with Nyong'o and her little cat, and here's to hoping that scruffy little creature makes it through alive.

Day One releases in theaters on June 28. It's directed by Michael Sarnoski (Pig), after the first two were directed by John Krasinski. In addition to the prequel, A Quiet Place 3 is coming in 2025, but it's unknown if Krasinski will come back to direct.

Outside of the film franchise, there is a Quiet Place video game in the works, but it has been a very long time since we've heard anything about it.
