John Krasinski: I'm late to the horror movie party

John Krasinski: I'm late to the horror movie partyā€¯

John Krasinski's A Quiet Place bagged $50 million to land at No. 1 for this weekend's US box office ranking. A Clover Place? Because we would probably have gone with something like A Cloverfield, Covered with Sand, Because That's Quieter (To Walk On). It also happens to be one of the movie's most compelling and suspenseful sequences, and that's no coincidence. Based on the responses on social media, it appears that most audiences understand how to treat this movie, so if you haven't seen it in the theater yet, odds are you'll have a great, if terrifying, experience.

To say that Paramount has recently been a quiet place would be exceedingly kind.

"We always knew we had something special from the first screenings". So, yeah, there are certainly so many stories you could tell. It's clear that Krasinski cares deeply for the people he's conjured up, and I found myself really connecting with this family because of this, even though I didn't know a single one of their names or backstories.

All jokes aside, Krasinski couldn't help but shower Blunt with praise for her work in "A Quiet Place".

As for fellow new release Blockers, the movie sold about 2.2 million tickets, which makes it the biggest comedy debut of the year so far.

Maybe he isn't the best writer or director, or maybe he can't ever be fully confident only controlling part of the puzzle. With this comes a loss of narrative trust which the audience took note of, no longer fearing sound and beginning to giggle at certain character choices and actions.

Krasinski alluded to his predisposition for taking the roads less travelled - roads that result in experimental successes like "A Quiet Place". Basically, it's pretty early to decide if a sequel to A Quiet Place will be made. John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, two kids, freaky f-ing monsters.

This is much, MUCH more subtle than a buzzer hidden beneath a seat however, as anyone in the theater that got buzzed in such a manner might very well be pulled down and have a hand clamped over their mouth just to avoid making too much noise. When the movie ended and the people started cheering I put my head on my wife's shoulder and cried because it was so fraught with tension and emotion. Similarly, turning to drama, while a great number of wonderful films have been released in the years since the introduction of sound that convey emotions silently (watch the Carl and Ellie montage from Up and try not to tear up), have any come close to the best works of Nosferatu filmmaker F. W. Murnau or Russian film pioneer Sergei Eisenstein? Still, "A Quiet Place" marks the first major film where Krasinski has had to balance acting, directing, producing and writing at the same time.
