Why Daredevil Doesn’t Feature Fun MCU Easter Eggs In Season 3

Having Daredevil and the other Marvel shows on Netflix exist in the MCU has continued to give fans hope that there would be crossovers at some point. While that hasn’t happened, and likely won’t, if you were thinking that Daredevil Season 3 would, at least, make some nods to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve got bad news for you. But, at least we know why the show will forego the Easter Eggs this season. Here’s what star Charlie Cox had to say when CinemaBlend’s own Corey Chichizola visited the set for roundtable interviews earlier this year:

This actually isn’t such a bad idea. The Netflix shows in the MCU have always been the more grounded entries in that universe, and, while throwing in some Easter Eggs that pointed toward that larger world wouldn’t ruin the experience for fans, it might serve to take away from the nitty-gritty, street level story the show is telling now. Especially considering what happened to Matt at the end of The Defenders.

The Defenders, of course, was the culmination of all the Marvel Netflix shows up to that point. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage came together to fight the mystical Hand, which had reincarnated Matt’s friend and former lover Elecktra to use her as a weapon that would allow them to continue their powerful, basically immortal, lives.

The ending of The Defenders saw The Hand defeated, but the new superpowered team lost Matt to a cave-in when the high rise they were fighting beneath collapsed. But, the final scene of that superhero crossover showed how Matt would come back, with him somehow being rescued and taken to his (previously presumed dead) mother’s convent to heal. So, it makes a lot of sense that the show would want to get back to more grounded stories.

Season 3 is going to see some big changes for both Matt and Daredevil. At some point during the season, Matt will make the decision to stop using his fancy red suit, and actually go back to fighting in regular old black clothes with either a dark scarf or torn cloth over the top part of his face, just like in the first season. According to the trailers, Matt will also be dealing with what seems like a pretty serious crisis of conscience, as he tries to figure out the best way to protect the people of New York now, given all that’s happened.

Matt and his crime-fighting alter-ego will also be dealing with a very dangerous and crafty new villain in the form of Bullseye, along with Wilson Fisk entering full Kingpin mode and setting his sights on Matt. So, while he has a lot to deal with already, Season 3 is going to be heavy on potentially life-altering conflicts and revelations. And, this all means that keeping things centered on the characters that Daredevil has developed over two seasons will be of utmost importance.

Season 3 of Daredevil already sounds like it’s going to be one ridiculously intense crime thriller, and I’m sure there are going to be enough surprises in store for fans that they won’t even miss those Easter Eggs. You can check out the new season when it hits Netflix this Friday, on October 19.

Halloween Is The Highest Pre-Selling Horror Movie Of 2018

As it should be, this month is a big one for horror movies, with new films, sequels and remakes all offering up delightful frights. Easily the biggest and most anticipated horror movie this month is David Gordon Green’s Halloween reboot-quel. There are a lot of reasons to think that this movie is going to be a big hit when it opens this weekend, and now we have another accomplishment to add to the list, as Halloween is the highest pre-selling horror movie of 2018.

This impressive stat comes from Atom Tickets, where Halloween is the top horror pre-seller this year based on advance tickets sold through the platform in the two weeks prior to a film’s opening. Beyond just the actual advance ticket sales indicating a high level of interest in Halloween, there is also a evidence that there is major awareness around the franchise that could drive its success.

Atom Tickets polled its users and found that 70% of its users have seen at least one Halloween movie and 48% of Latinx Atom users have seen all of the Halloween films. The poll also found that Latinx Atom users are twice as likely to see Halloween than other racial groups.

This is an important statistic and demographic because Latinx fans turn out for horror movies, and as we saw with The Nun, that group overcame the film’s bad reviews to deliver the biggest hit yet in The Conjuring Universe. So Halloween can hope for that same audience to help drive its success, particularly since Halloween is enjoying much better reviews than The Nun.

Advance ticket sales aren’t a surefire guarantee of box office success, as Solo: A Star Wars Story proved, but they aren’t nothing either. This year has already been a big one for horror with buzzed about original titles like A Quiet Place and Hereditary and entries in popular existing franchises like The Nun and The First Purge all releasing.

So for Halloween to be the best pre-seller in a year full of great horror in the middle of the horror renaissance speaks to how excited people are to see this film, as they made the move to buy tickets in advance.

Halloween has a lot of factors going for it, like the fact that it is arriving at the perfect time, in advance of its namesake holiday. Also, Halloween has greater name recognition, brand awareness and longevity than the other horror films this year it beat in pre-sales and that all plays a part.

Atom Tickets also polled its users about the scariest movie killers and the top two were Michael Myers and Pennywise. We saw last year with IT just how powerful potent nostalgia mixed with great reviews and timing can be, and that bodes well for Halloween.

Halloween has been tracking between $50 million and $85 million, but CinemaBlend’s own Eric Eisenberg thinks those numbers are way too low and Halloween will crack $100 million opening weekend. And with Atom Ticket’s pre-sale news, evidence is mounting that he could be right.

We’ll find out just how big Halloween will be when it opens in theaters this Friday, October 19. For all the year’s biggest movies, check out our release schedule.

NYPD Blue Revival Will Kill Off A Major Original Series Character

TV revivals and sequels have been huge hits on the small screen in recent years, even if one of the biggest came to an unceremonious end earlier this year. Now, another classic series is coming back to television without rebooting its entire universe, but it won’t be back without killing off a huge character. Yes, NYPD Blue is getting a revival, and it’s killing off Andy Sipowicz to do it.

An NYPD: Blue revival is in the works at ABC, and the premise of the project revolves around the death of original series protagonist Andy Sipowicz. The new show would be based on Theo Sipowicz, who followed in his father’s footsteps and pursued law enforcement. His goal is to earn his shield as a detective and investigate crime out of his dad’s old 15th precinct. He works to use his NYPD resources to investigate his dad’s murder.

Well, if the NYPD: Blue revival project scores a series order, fans won’t be able to hold out hope that the elder Sipowicz will be teaming up with his son, unless flashbacks or hallucinations are in play. A lot may depend on when Andy Sipowicz was murdered. If he died shortly after the end of NYPD: Blue in 2005, he likely couldn’t have worked with his son as a cop. If it was later… well, perhaps Dennis Franz could reprise the role somehow.

The show would obviously be quite different from the original thanks to how heavily NYPD Blue revolved around Andy Sipowicz, but fans can probably expect a revival to feel similar to the original. Matt Olmstead and Nick Wootton, who wrote and executive produced on NYPD Blue during its initial run on ABC, are on board to write and executive produce the new project. They’re not the only ones from the NYPD Blue family attached.

Jesse Bochco will direct and executive produce on the NYPD Blue revival as well. Bochco worked as a producer on the original series, and he is the son of NYPD Blue co-creator Steven Bochco, who passed away at the age of 74 back in April. Steven Bochco’s wife, Dayna Bochco, is a producer as well.

All of this said, there are no guarantees at this point that a revival of NYPD _Blue_ will make it to primetime. Although Variety reports that the project has scored a pilot production commitment from ABC, a pilot production commitment is far from a series order. There are plenty of steps ahead of the project before it potentially makes it to the airwaves.

It would certainly appeal to any original series fans who hope for appearances from previous stars, although ride-or-die Sipowicz fans may not want to check out a show that killed off Andy. We can only wait and see what’s in store yet. ABC has had some incredible success with revivals, so it’s possible that NYPD Blue could become a priority for the network. A revival debuting in 2019 or beyond could certainly do things the original couldn’t without attracting legal trouble!

Godzilla Vs. Kong: An Updated Cast List

There are plenty of monsters living in Warner Bros’ MonsterVerse franchise (as one would expect with a name like that), but two reign above the rest. In 2014, Godzilla‘s eponymous beast roared back onto American screens to dispatch the MUTOs, and last year, Kong: Skull Island wound the clock back to 1973 to show King Kong retaliating against the humans who bombed his home and battling Skullcrawlers. In 2020, these two will finally face off in the appropriately-titled, Adam Wingard-directed Godzilla vs. Kong.

While this won’t be the first time that Godzilla and King Kong have crossed paths in cinematic history, it is the first time it’s going down in a Hollywood franchise. Naturally Godzilla vs. Kong‘s main draw will be seeing those two monsters engaged in battle and possibly teaming up to fight a greater threat. But naturally, there will be humans around to witness this conflict, and with that in mind, we’ve assembled this list of all the actors who’ve been announced for Godzilla vs. Kong.

Kyle Chandler

Starting off, Godzilla vs. Kong is bringing back three familiar MonsterVerse faces. Well, they’ll be familiar once Godzilla: King of the Monsters comes out next year. The first person is Kyle Chandler’s Mark Russell, ex-husband of Emma Russell and father of Madison Russell. Mark will team up with others in King of the Monsters to save Emma and Madison, and while it remains to be seen how that rescue mission unfolds, at least we know he’ll make it out alive. It’s possible King of the Monsters‘ ending will hint at how/why he’s in Godzilla vs. Kong, but for now, like the rest of the cast, specific details of his involvement are being kept under wraps. Chandler has also appeared in Argo, Game Night, First Man, the Friday Night Lights TV series and Bloodline.

Millie Bobby Brown

Millie Bobby Brown catapulted to worldwide fame when she debuted as Eleven in Netflix’s Stranger Things. She’s still one of the TV series’ main players, but Godzilla: King of the Monsters will mark her film debut, and what a way for people to first see you on the big screen. Brown is playing Madison Russell, who, like her father, will survive the events of King of the Monsters and be back for Godzilla vs. Kong. From what we’ve seen of King of the Monsters so far, Madison will be at the center of all the insanity, where she’ll see some, if not all, of the gigantic creatures, like Mothra. Watching Godzilla and King Kong throw down in fisticuffs shouldn’t be too out of the ordinary for her then, though she and the others would still be wise to keep their distance.

Zhang Ziyi

The last established MonsterVerse character who’s been announced to return for Godzilla vs. Kong for is Dr. Chen, played by Zhang Ziyi. No details about Dr. Chen have been revealed yet, but she will be someone that figures prominently in the MonsterVerse. Given the doctorate, presumably she works alongside Ken Watanabe’s Ishiro Serizawa and Sally Hawkins’ Vivienne Graham at Monarch, the organization that studies these monsters, but we can’t say that with certainty yet. Either way, Dr. Chen will witness Godzilla and King Kong’s clash. Zhang’s other credits include Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Memoirs of a Geisha and The Cloverfield Paradox.

Julian Dennison

Now we get to the actors whose Godzilla vs. Kong characters haven’t been identified yet. Before this year, Julian Dennison was best known for starring in the New Zealand film Hunt for the Wilderpeople, directed by Taika Waititi, who later helmed Thor: Ragnarok. But in May, a lot of American moviegoers saw Dennison for the first time in Deadpool 2, where he played Russell Collins, a.k.a. Firefist, the pyrokinetic youth who Cable traveled back in time to kill. Godzilla vs. Kong keeps Dennison’s blockbuster cred going, and ideally his character will cross paths with Madison Russell so he has someone around his own age to hang out with.

Danai Gurira

There are two places you likely know Danai Gurira from best: The Walking Dead and/or Black Panther, The actress has been part of the former as Michonne since Season 3, and after debuting as Okoye in the latter, she reprised the role in Avengers: Infinity War. Now it looks like she’ll be jumping into the realm of Titans for her next high profile role, although it is worth noting that when Gurira’s Godzilla vs. Kong involvement was first announced, she was in early talks. There hasn’t been any updates on her status since then, so we’re not 100% sure that Gurira will be in the movie. But I imagine that since there’s been no word of negotiations breaking down either, there’s a good chance she’ll appear.

Brian Tyree Henry

Having already made a name for himself on television as Paper Boi on Atlanta, Brian Tyree Henry’s movie career has been taking off. This year alone, he’s starred in Irreplaceable You, Hotel Artemis, White Boy Rick, Widows and If Beale Street Could Talk, and we’ll soon hear him in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Henry’s upcoming appearances include The Woman in the Window and the Child’s Play reboot, but Godzilla vs. Kong will unquestionably be his biggest (figuratively and literally) live action project yet. Like Danai Gurira, Henry will be playing one of the lead characters, so he won’t be lacking for screen time.

Demián Bichir

Finally, it looks like the latest addition to the Godzilla vs. Kong cast will be Demián Bichir, who appeared as Father Burke earlier this year in The Nun, the latest Conjuring franchise entry. Before that, his American cinematic credits included A Better Man, Machete Kills, The Hateful Eight and Alien: Covenant, and next year, he’ll star in Chaos Walking and the Grudge reboot. As things stand now, according to THR, Bichir is in talks to join Godzilla vs. Kong, so while it’s possible said discussions could break down, it’s more likely that he’ll play a part in this violent monster mash.

Godzilla vs. Kong rampages into theaters on May 22, 2020, so stay tuned to CinemaBlend for continuing coverage.

Orange Is The New Black Season 7 Video Confirms It’s The Final Season

Orange Is the New Black was one of Netflix’s very first original dramas, and fans have already gotten six full seasons of the ladies at Litchfield (and then not Litchfield as we knew it). A seventh is on the way, but fans shouldn’t see it as one of many still to come. A new Orange Is the New Black video confirms that Season 7 will be the last, and the cast shares some touching messages. Take a look!

Well, if you’re a longtime fan of the show who hoped that it would go on indefinitely, you may be bummed out by the video message from the Orange Is the New Black cast (via Twitter) confirming the upcoming end of the series. The good news is that the cast clearly loves what they’ve done on the show, and none of their messages hinted at any bitterness. Perhaps saying goodbye will be easier for fans knowing that the actresses share their fondness for all things Orange.

The actresses are clearly grateful to the fans for tuning in for the better part of the decade, and they promise that Season 7 will be exactly what fans want before the end. If painful news about the future of a show is going to drop, a touching video isn’t too shabby of a way to do it! That said, not all fans will necessarily be devastated that the end is nigh for Orange Is the New Black.

After all the wild, shocking, and heartbreaking stories the show has covered to this point, it has begun to feel like the time is come to wrap the show up and end it. Orange Is the New Black might have run out of steam if it kept chugging along beyond the upcoming seventh season, and nobody wants to see their favorite shows slowly die out rather than end at a good time!

There’s also the point that news of the show’s end comes after one more season was already ordered. The news is not that the Season 6 finale will have to double as the series finale. Not all shows are lucky enough to get an order for one more season for one last hurrah, and a Netflix show isn’t exactly going to be rescued by Netflix like Lucifer!

The producers have the knowledge that Orange Is the New Black won’t be back beyond Season 7, so they can use the final season to wrap the characters’ arcs up in a way that will hopefully satisfy fans. We’ll have to just cross our fingers that nobody behind the scenes decides that a cliffhanger ending is the way to go.

Orange Is the New Black is the second high-profile original to get the axe from the streaming giant over the past week, and unlike Iron Fist, the end will be the end for this series. Netflix does have a whole bunch of originals in the works to join the massive number of originals already available. Fans will be able to find plenty of options even after having to say goodbye to the OITNB crew.

John Carpenter Was Drunk When He Came Up With Halloween II’s Sibling Twist

Although it became a huge part of the mythology in subsequent films, Jamie Lee Curtis‘ Laurie Strode and Michael Myers were not siblings in the original 1978 Halloween. That twist actually occurred in Halloween II and apparently in part came about from John Carpenter being inebriated. The writer/director of the first Halloween and co-writer of Halloween II spoke about what led to the twist and his disdain for it, saying:

Well, despite his general brilliance, John Carpenter is far from the only person in human history to have come up with a bad idea while in an altered mental state. It sounds like he and co-writer Debra Hill were under the gun with a bad case of writer’s block and just sort of had to come up with something, so with the aid of a little liquid inspiration, they forced that connection with the sibling twist.

The first Halloween is considered to be such a perfect horror film and the birth of the slasher sub-genre that it really didn’t need anything changed or added. But as John Carpenter told The Daily Beast, for the television airing of the film, they needed to extend its runtime, and that necessitated adding more material, which is something they struggled with.

So while filming Halloween II, and with a little help from alcohol and desperation, they added the sister twist to the extended TV version of Halloween. That twist was then incorporated it into Halloween II and carried on throughout the series through decades of sequels and reboots.

Obviously looking back, John Carpenter isn’t happy about the twist, and you can kind of see why. He didn’t even want sequels in the first place, and a bad story choice wound up becoming a major part of them.

Forcing familial connections when done well can be awesome and shocking (The Empire Strikes Back), but it is so overdone, and making everything connected in that way is often a case of bad or lazy writing. In this instance, it makes Michael Myers a killer with a purpose versus just a force of nature, killing at random with no rhyme or reason.

Now, almost 40 years since the sibling twist was introduced, the hangover of that drunken decision is finally wearing off. David Gordon Green’s new Halloween retcons the franchise’s continuity, removing everything but the original film, including Halloween II. And since the Halloween TV extended version is not canon, that means that Laurie Strode and Michael Myers are no longer siblings.

The trailer for Halloween even references the sibling connection as “something people made up,” letting audiences know that the slate has been wiped clean.

You can see how it all plays out when Halloween hits theaters this Friday, October 19. Check out our premiere guide to plan out all the movies you should see this fall, and for all the latest in drunken decisions, stay tuned to CinemaBlend.

Tara Reid Is Not Pleased, Says She Didn’t Get Kicked Off Plane

Tara Reid has a lot to say about her Delta flight incident from earlier this week. The film and TV actress has often been the source of negative press over the years, but she wanted to clear the air about what she believes is an inaccurate and inappropriate news report from one infamous tabloid site. Providing her perspective on the reported incident, Reid hopes to set the record straight on what happened on that Delta flight. Here’s what she said.

In a self-penned letter published on her Instagram account, Tara Reid attempted to explain what went down during this airplane ride, and what caused this disturbance that has since been reported on by TMZ. In the statement, Reid claimed she was flying to New York City in order to shoot a new film. Before she set out to travel to the Big Apple, the Sharknado actress states she made arrangements to travel with the dog companion, a three-month-old pup, whom Tara Reid calls her “emotional support dog.”

She claims to have had “every right” to bring the dog in the midst of traveling to the shoot, including the proper paperwork. But Delta disagreed, apparently, and that’s when Tara Reid and the plane company found themselves at odds.

When a flight attendant tried to persuade the actress to put the dog in the overhead bin, or placed inside carry-on, Tara Reid refused, claiming that doing so was “absurd.” The Big Lebowski actress says the animal is unable to breathe inside the container, and she wouldn’t put the dog in the bin, believing it wasn’t right. The flight attendant once again tried to alleviate the situation by putting the puppy “in the belly of the plane,” a decision that Reid also took issue with.

Tara Reid didn’t want to “abandon the dog,” so she didn’t accept any of the options presented to her by the flight attendants. With that, Reid claims she “gracefully declined and deboarded” the plane, and she wanted to make the point that this decision came at her “own accord.” Reid pointed to the video that was posted on TMZ and claimed there was no “disturbance” to be found.

Also, Tara Reid found a different plane that accommodated the dog demands, and she made her way to New York City in order to shoot her new movie. Reid believes this isn’t the story that was communicated.

Without being on the plane, it’s hard to know what exactly went down during Tara Reid’s travels. But the actress is sticking to her guns and claiming that TMZ’s reporting of the situation was completely in error. Furthermore, she wanted to let the media know that her team is willing to accept questions. Should any reporter want to know more about the story, that is. Meanwhile, we’ll continue to keep you posted on the latest celebrity news right here.

It’s Finally Possible To Earn An Elusive Achievement In The Stanley Parable

Video game achievements are sought after by the most diehard of fans who want to unlock the most hidden of secrets within some of the more obscure games out there. Some achievements can’t be unlocked due to game glitches or mistakes, or because the content just wasn’t there. In one particular case, there has been an achievement that gamers really wanted to unlock but haven’t been able to until now. The Stanley Parable‘s Go Outside and Play achievement required you to not play the game for five years.

Creator of The Stanley Parable, Davey Wreden, took to his Twitter account to announce that only now can one very elusive achievement from the game be accomplished… which is to say that if you haven’t played the game for five years you can now unlock that achievement.

This one has been a long time coming. This means that in order to achieve that specific goal, you would have had to put in some play time with the game and then have let it sit for five years. The thing is, if you wanted to unlock the achievement you wouldn’t have been able to do so until today, because the game came out back on October 17th, 2013… five years ago to the day.

So if you played and beat The Stanley Parable (in any capacity) and then let the game sit, you could then boot it up right now and unlock the “Go Outside” achievement.

For those of you who put in more time with the game and let it sit thereafter, you’ll have to wait until the date of when you last played it, and then boot it up to unlock the achievement.

Some people might see this as a nuisance but the reality is that the entirety of The Stanley Parable was about subverting the expectations of an interactive entertainment experience. It’s unlike any other game out there. You’re not trying to kill zombies like Call of Duty, or capture checkpoints in Battlefield; you’re not trying to get the finish line like in Gran Turismo or unfold some grand political conspiracy like in Metal Gear Solid.

The Stanley Parable is a game about existentialism and choice. You get to choose how the story unfolds and the extent to which Stanley goes in order to fulfill what you believe is a meaningful story. The game turns the entirety of narration on its head in a fantastic way and it’s one of the reasons why it’s become a cult classic. It’s like a less weird video game version of something you would expect from a David Lynch film.

Having an achievement tied to a real-life half-decade experience seems to fit very much in line with the blurred lines that the game took with dealing with life, choice, and the consequences of those choices. So, for those of you who chose not to play the game for five years, maybe you’ll choose to play it one more time to unlock that very elusive achievement?

Why Nathan Fillion Joined Another Cop Drama So Soon After Castle’s Cancellation

Back in May 2016, the beloved series Castle was cancelled. Two years later, Nathan Fillion is returning to ABC in another cop dramaThe Rookie. So, is Fillion fascinated by law and order shows? Fillion responded to that very question, saying:

While it appears to be related, Nathan Fillion’s answer to Parade rules out the notion. As it turns out, Fillion’s choice to do another cop procedural in The Rookie is related to Castle. Just not in the way some may have thought. Alexi Hawley, who Fillion mentions wanting to collaborate with again, served as a producer on Castle. Hawley is the executive producer on The Rookie, thus connecting the two series outside of sharing Fillion as their lead.

It is intriguing to hear Nathan Fillion assert why he chooses the shows he does to take part in. Fillion revealed it has more to do with what he enjoys doing than watching. That approach makes perfect sense given that actors must work on the show they signed on to do. They do not necessarily have to watch it.

There is also the aspect of liking who you work with. Chances are that if you have had a positive experience with them before, you will again. Tackling a new show with a different concept would be less of an adjustment if you knew some of those on set.

When asked about The Rookie‘s sense of humor, Nathan Fillion teased his character having one. He added that his Rookie character’s humor is more based in reality than Richard Castle’s.

Nathan Fillion also spoke fondly of Castle. Fans of the caper will undoubtedly be happy to hear that! Castle was a special show, and it will be interesting to see if The Rookie can capture similar success.

Armed with romance and overarching intrigue to offset its crime-of-the-week structure, Castle struck a chord with viewers. The series debuted nearly a decade ago in 2009 and ran for eight seasons. For perspective, that is as long a run as Game of Thrones will have had when it ends.

As someone who is not a huge fan of procedurals, Castle changed that when it premiered. Nathan Fillion’s easy-going charm and ability to rattle off quick-witted banter brought something fresh to the genre. When a show is dealing with crime, you need a presence to counterbalance the grim atmosphere. That is where Fillion consistently excels. Otherwise, a procedural is just a procedure. You have to have something special to help it stand out.

New episodes of The Rookie air Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC. It is part of the ongoing slate of fall premieres.

Turns Out John Krasinski Had A Second Role In A Quiet Place

Close the door and the blinds, because it looks like we are amidst a new horror golden age, with A Quiet Place‘s box office success being a sound contributor. The low-budget film exhibited the powerful terror of silence and positioned John Krasinski as a talented filmmaker. Along with Krasinski taking on the roles of A Quiet Place‘s lead, co-writer and director, he also kept one of his other essential roles underwraps: he played the terrifying creature himself. Here’s how he ended up under the mask of the movie’s monster:

During a visit at Jimmy Kimmel Live, the show’s host revealed John Krasinski’s little-known role with a little resistance from the actor. Kimmel revealed a photo of Krasinski roaring in a motion capture suit to the audience as the actor joked that it would end his career. While it seemed like his role as the creature was out of necessity of it representing his vision as co-writer and director of the horror flick, it also shows an admirable investment in the project and versatility as an actor. Take a look at Krasinski acting as the creature:

John Krasinski explained earlier in the interview that although A Quiet Place may look terrifying on the outside, at its core it’s a love letter to his daughter. Behind the jump scares and suspense, the film tackled the life of a family struggling to survive in a fear-stricken world full of death and despair. So the filmmaker’s massive contribution to the film makes a lot of sense, as it was a passion project for him. Krasinski also starred alongside his wife, Emily Blunt, for the film. He wrote with her character with her in mind, but was apprehensive to ask her to star in without her impartial interest.

Having made over $334 million worldwide, A Quiet Place quickly cemented itself as a commercial powerhouse this year. Considering its modest production budget of $17 million, the movie blaringly exceeded expectations. Following this success, the film has already has officially been given a sequel, coming on May 15, 2020. Krasinski recently started working on the sequel, with a chilling main concept starting to take flight.

Considering the ending to A Quiet Place, Krasinski may not have the same number of hats to change for the sequel, but if his name is on it and he keeps it a passion project, we can’t wait to see what will come next for the franchise. A Quiet Place is currently available to watch at home on Digital HD and Blu-ray.
