The Teaser Trailer for ‘A Quiet Place II’ Leaves Fans with 1 Huge Question

Horror fans around the world are screaming in silence because the teaser trailer for A Quiet Place 2 has just arrived. [Spoiler Alert: Spoilers for A Quiet Place are found within this article.] In April of 2018, director John Krasinski (of The Office fame) released a film that managed to breathe new life into the often predictable genre of horror. In a film packed to the brim with love, loss, and terror, Krasinski managed to successfully tell a story that many have never seen before.

Major plot points for A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place follows the Abbott family, who silently live in a post-apocalyptic world, trying their best to avoid killer creatures who hunt using sound. Though the family struggles to effectively communicate their emotions at times, they have a leg up on basic communication thanks to their hearing-impaired daughter. As the family had to learn sign language prior to the creatures attacking them, they can communicate silently more effectively than most.

Throughout the film, the family suffers two tragic losses. The first is mere minutes into the film when their young son is immediately murdered by the monsters. The second is when Kraskinski’s character sacrifices himself for his children mere hours after his wife gives birth to their fourth child and right before she discovers how to properly kill the creatures.

A Quiet Place Part II teaser trailer

On December 18, 2019, the 30-second teaser trailer for A Quiet Place 2 was released via the film’s official Twitter page. The sequel seems to pick up right around where the first film left off. Evelyn, Reagan, and Marcus Abbott silently stalk through the woods seemingly on the hunt. Despite her bandaged foot, courtesy of the chilling nail scene in the first film, Evelyn confidently leads her older children with a gun in hand. After a short while, she turns to Reagan, who is equipped with a map, to check that they are headed in the right direction. Reagan nods in assurance and the three continue on their quest, presumably to hunt and kill the remaining creatures.

Fans were immediately taken with the teaser trailer and are excited for the full-length trailer, which will be released to the public on January 1, 2020. “THIS IS ALL WE NEED!!!! No more no less…. perfect trailer, the first movie was fkn great!!!! I’m still traumatized by the nail scene from the first one lol Can’t fkn wait!!!!!!! Part 2 let’s fkn go!!!!” one enthusiastic fan wrote. However, other fans found the teaser trailer extremely troubling for one reason; it makes no mention of the Abbott’s newborn baby.

Where is the baby

“Yeah I WANNA KNOW WHERE IS THE BABY,” one person tweeted out. “Where is the child?” another fan questioned. “I’m looking all over these thirty seconds for the baby,” another person added. While it is quite possible that the baby was left out of the teaser trailer for A Quiet Place 2, it doesn’t really bode well for the newborn. After all, who could possibly be watching the baby, making sure it’s safe, and ensuring it doesn’t cry too loudly? I guess we’ll have to wait a little while longer for answers to all of our burning questions. A Quiet Place Part II hits theatres in March of 2020. We can’t wait to see what Krasinski has in store for us next.
