The official trailer for A Quiet Place Part 2 is here. A John Krasinski directed horror / thriller starring Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy and about a family whose survival is dependant on how quiet they can be in their everyday lives…

This is one of very few trailers that doesn’t feel too long even though it’s more than 2.5 minutes in length.

I’m definitely looking forward to all the major mommy ‘badassery’ we can expect from Blunt. I also find myself relieved that Murphy will be playing a good guy. The Abbot family could really do with another adult on their side. Especially considering all the people left who ‘aren’t worth saving’.

Okieriete Onaodowan, Blake DeLong, Ashley Dyke, Andy Rich and Silas Pereira-Olson also star.

A QUIET PLACE PART 2 (2020): New Trailer From Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy, Noah Jupe, Millicent Simmonds…

A Quiet Place Part 2 sees the return of the Abbot family (Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds) as they learn that the creatures that hunt by sound aren’t the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.

Directed by John Krasinski; additional key cast includes Cillian Murphy, Djimon Hounsou, Wayne Duvall, Lauren-Ashley Cristiano…

I’m excited to see more ingenuity by the Abbot family, what new and clever ways will they adopt to ensure survival.

Also, I like the introduction of Murphy. My guess is that he’s probably not a ‘good guy…’ or is he?

Ashley Dyke, Andy Rich, Okieriete Onaodowan, Blake DeLong and Silas Pereira-Olson also star.

Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Jesse Plemons and Jack Whitehall are the stars of Jungle cruise, a new fantasy / adventure based on Disneyland’s theme park ride.

A ride where a small riverboat takes a group of travellers through a jungle filled with dangerous animals, reptiles, and with a supernatural element…

Looks like quite a fun cross between, Tarzan, and Jumanji. Also, just yesterday I was thinking, ‘I haven’t seen Emily Blunt in a while…’ And now, here she is.

Paul Giamatti, Edgar Ramírez, Veronica Falcón, Andy Nyman, Raphael Alejandro, Mark Ashworth and Quim Gutiérrez also star.

Jungle Cruise Release Dates: July 24th, 2020 (US & UK)…

A QUIET PLACE (2018): The Things I Liked…

Starring Emily Blunt, co-written / directed by, and starring John Krasinski, A Quiet Place is a scary movie I wanted to see regardless of my characteristic of being ‘easily spooked into insomnia and nightmares.’ 

Set during a post apocalyptic future, Blunt and Krasinski are a couple with three children. In an effort to stay alive, the family are forced to live in silence because simply not doing so will mean they’re heard and subsequently become prey for mysterious creatures that hunt by sound.

I enjoyed this movie and was shocked, moved and impressed by the story, characters, performances plus the execution of the most memorable moments. A Quiet Place did a good job of showing the audience the general cleverness one would need in order to survive in a world where sound becomes deadly. 

I absolutely want to believe that I’d survive living in silence; however there may be too much about me that is loud. A surprise sneeze attack among many other things would surely mean the end of me.

Besides making me an even bigger fan of Blunt and Krasinski, A Quiet Place made me appreciate my freedom to make sound. It reminded me of the the gargantuan challenge that is parenting. It also left me feeling even more empowered and powerful as a young woman, something I wasn’t expecting.

If I had to pick one thing that I wasn’t totally in love with about this movie, it would be the jarring move from silence to a seemingly super loud sound/ musical score. 

Watch it because it’s good and A Quiet Place will likely not result in a single moment of sleeplessness. It didn’t for me.. yet!

Director Rob Marshall’s Mary Poppins Returns is set in 1930s depression-era London. In the follow-up to the 1964 family movie, both Jane and Michael Banks are grown up and Michael has three children. After the family suffer a terrible loss, Mary Poppins turns up to show them the joy and wonder that’s been missing from their lives.

Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Emily Mortimer star…

For a moment I thought this teaser trailer wasn’t going to show Blunt as Poppins at all. I’m looking forward to seeing what she does with the role. Her accent sounds a little unlike what I expected but it’s early days yet.

So far, I’m absolutely loving the coats in this trailer, especially that green beauty at 1:04!

Mary Poppins Returns Release Dates: December 21st, 2018 (UK); December 25th, 2018 (US)…

A Quiet Place is a new drama / thriller / horror film starring husband and wife team Emily Blunt and John Krasinki.

Also co-written and directed by Krasinski, according to IMDb, the synopsis for this one is currently being kept under wraps…

This is a very intriguing trailer. It’s going to be interesting watching what I’m guessing will be in at least some part, a silent movie. Go, go, go, team Blunt / Krasinski!

Evangelina Cavoli, Ezekiel Cavoli, Cade Woodward and Millicent Simmonds also star.

A Quiet Place Release Dates: April 6th, 2018 (US); May 4th, 2018 (UK)…

Based on the book by Paula Hawkins, a mystery/ thriller is what we can expect from Emily Blunt and Justin Theroux’s latest movie, The Girl On The Train…

There’s just a little bit of a Gone Girl (2014) vibe about this one and that, I must say, is not a bad thing.

The Girl On The Train Release Dates: October 7th, 2016 (UK &US); October 27th, 2016 (GER)…

SICARIO (2015): For The Performances, Music, Cinematography & Tension

Set in the US / Mexico border area in the middle of the escalating war on drugs, Emily Blunt plays a ‘fish out of water’ FBI agent recruited by Josh Brolin’s Matt Graver. Benicio Del Toro’s character is the mysterious consultant, Alejandro who Graver brings along for the ride.

‘Bristling with expertly captured tension’ is one way to describe Sicario; whether it’s the tensions between law enforcement and the criminals or the tensions between the film’s main characters. Sicario is excellently scored, filled with stunning visuals and really notable performances, especially from Blunt and Del Toro.

In terms of things that I wish were different about the movie, director Denis Villeneuve’s film has a few stretches of time that had me wishing for more things to happen. I’m sure that when little seemed to be taking place in terms of action and drama, those moments were true representations of what days can be like for the main characters involved. Unfortunately, those moments just made my mind wander elsewhere.

Overall, Sicario is a very good movie. Just don’t expect continuous action/ drama, for this is neither Training Day (2001) nor End Of Watch (2012); both great films.

Other key characters are played by Daniel Kaluuya, Victor Garber, Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey Donovan.

A reminder of the film’s excellent trailer
