Paramount Pictures presented both details and footage of several upcoming Paramount projects, such as A Quiet Place: Day One and Mission Impossible – Dead Reckoning: Part One, at CinemaCon 2023 with the exclusive footage of the new A Quiet Place instalment being revealed only weeks after the cast and crew wrapped up on filming.
The confirmed cast for the prequel to A Quiet Place includes Alex Wolff, Lupita Nyong’o, and Joseph Quinn (Stranger Things), with the additional casting and plot details currently being kept extremely tightly under wraps, the story will focus on Nyong’os character who is a mother trying to survive during the early days of the franchise’s alien invasion.
‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ CinemaCon 2023 Footage
During Paramount’s panel, a brief amount of footage from A Quiet Place: Day One was shown to the audience, it starts with Nyong’o’s character who appears to be just your average day-to-day citizen, with her character shown to be riding a bus in New York City before traffic suddenly stopping with people seen bursting out of their cars in haste to all eerily look up to the skies.
A meteor is then shown rapidly taking out half of the same bus that Nyong’o’s character was riding in, where she then anxiously walks slowly toward the destroyed section of the bus, most likely to be one of the aliens preparing to start wreaking havoc on everyone.
People surround the scene before standing in the middle of the now distressed street with shots of everyone all looking up to horrifically witness a meteor shower dropping down to earth, which as seen in previous instalments, fans will remember this to be the blood-thirsty aliens arriving to planet Earth, later killing John Krasinski, chronologically, something that audiences worldwide won’t be forgiving them for anytime soon.
The remaining shots of footage revealed was a quick collection of the prequel’s intense action scenes, showing Djimon Hounsou’s return, who previously entered the series in A Quiet Place: Part Two, with Alex Wolff’s character, then shown to be running in fear, Joseph Quinn’s character is also shown to be screaming in pain, similar to how his Eddie in Stranger Things does when being torn apart by unworldly bat creatures, with even more scenes of people being wiped out by the aliens in much greater numbers seen in the series yet.
When Will The Footage Release Publicly?
Sadly, the footage was used from a movie that is still in the early days of its creation, so it’s safe to assume that fans will have to wait until later this year to get their real first look at the gripping scenes from A Quiet Place: Day One.
