Ask any of my friends and they will tell you I am a loud person.
I don’t necesarily set out to be but I am a Sagittarius, I love people and socialising and yes, talking and so a happily noisy, burbling with activity is somewhere I feel naturally at home.
But watching the trailer for A Quiet Place: Day One, I am reminded again, just as I was when I watched A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place: Part II, that I wouldn’t survive very long in this nightmarishly apocalyptic new world where being even slightly decibelic is going to get you fatally chomped on by aliens.
And it’s not that I or anyone else would have a death wish; as the trailer shows all too intensely, people simply don’t know at first that that is how they are being tracked by Earth’s new extraterrestrial super predator, and of course, you can’t prepare for what you don’t know.
But the savvy ones who don’t get eaten in that first wave, work it out pretty quickly and suddenly the world goes quiet in a way that brings in a whole new way of being.
But getting there is going to be TERRIFYING as this new trailer graphically and unnervingly shows.
A Quiet Place: Day One lands in cinemas without a whisper on 27 June in Australia and 28 June in U.S.
