In the world of “A Quiet Place,” Earth’s population has dwindled after extraterrestrial creatures with a keen sense of hearing have forced the surviving population to live their lives in complete silence.
Emily Blunt, Krasinski’s real-life wife, played his character’s wife in the movie. Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe played their children.
Blunt recently won a Screen Actors Guild Award for her performance.
The movie’s inventive premise, powerful ensemble cast and infectious word-of-mouth praise helped propel “A Quiet Place” to a $340 million worldwide box office gross.
“I think this set of circumstances and the fact that people are living through exactly what this family lived through, it’s kind of a world you can explore and re-explore and re-explore,” Krasinski said. “So I think there’s so many more stories to tell in that world that I got excited.”
Spoiler alert: Krasinski’s character did not survive to the end of the film. But, he joked, that doesn’t mean he won’t return.
“Maybe it’s a ‘Hamlet’ thing where I just keep coming back and doing the whole thing,” he said.
