Great sports cinema goes far beyond what happens on the field, the court, or in this case, the racing track. It explores the unseen drama and relationships that are created off of them. Ford v Ferrari, directed by James Mangold, is just that kind of film as it chronicles the building of a better, faster, and stronger American car, while also elevating the story with a real-life grounded human drama.
Though it may check off all the boxes when it comes to biographical sports films, it also makes and checks off a few more with its editing and technical designs in sound, production, and costumes, and has audiences consuming what they are watching thanks in part to terrific performances from Matt Damon and Christian Bale. Check out the full review below.
Thanks to the power of social media, we now know that John Krasinski has officially started production for A Quiet Place 2. The highly anticipated sequel brings back Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe as the Abbott family. Krasinski also returns as director, with Polly Morgan joining as the cinematographer for the sequel. More on the report here below.

Writer: Bryan Woods, Scott Beck, John Krasinski
Cast: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, Cade Woodward
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 95 Minutes
Release Date: April 6, 2018
Co-written and directed by John Krasinski, the horror-thriller A Quiet Place is set in a dystopian 2020, in the aftermath of an extraterrestrial attack. The planet’s population has been decimated by a race of blind, bloodthirsty creatures that hunt their prey with a heightened sense of hearing. In New York, the Abbott family learns how to survive in complete silence after their youngest son, Beau (Cade Woodward), falls victim to the sound-sensitive invaders.
Back in November we saw the first teaser trailer for A Quiet Place, an upcoming horror movie written by, directed by, and starring John Krasinski (The Office, 13 Hours). Then we saw a Super Bowl TV spot and interview with Krasinski earlier this month.
Now Paramount Pictures has released an official trailer for the film, which also stars Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe. The story involves a family who is forced to live in a secluded area and in complete silence in order to avoid attracting the attention of a mysterious danger, which thrives on any sounds someone might make.
It’s ironic that Paramount Pictures would drop A Quiet Place TV spot during what could be the loudest game of the year, but that’s what they did during tonight’s Super Bowl broadcast. The entire film’s characters’ survival hinges on their ability to stay as quiet as possible. If they don’t, they risk being killed by shadowy hunters who hear like a bat. The film comes from director John Krasinski, who also stars in the film with his real-life actress wife Emily Blunt. While the first trailer gave us a small glimpse of what family life is like when living in silence, this new trailer throws in all the scares at you, and never misses a beat. Check out the Super Bowl spot and featurette here below.
