Final “A Quiet Place: Day One” Trailer Finds Frodo the Cat in Danger

The final trailer for Paramount’s prequel A Quiet Place: Day One combines new footage with quotes from critics, many of whom were blown away by director Michael Sarnoski’s prequel. The final peek also reveals the lengths people will go to for a beloved cat, in this case, Frodo (played by two kitties, Nico and Schnitzel). We see both Lupita Nyong’o’s Sam and Joseph Quinn’s Eric do their level best to protect the kitty from the alien hunters who have arrived, sans invitation, in New York City.

The early reactions to Day One indicate that Sarnoski and his cast and crew have created a properly satisfying lens-widener on the sci-fi horror franchise created by John Krasinski. Krasinski first established the after-effects of a world dominated by blind but exquisitely lethal aliens who hunt by sound in A Quiet Place (2018) and then broadened the picture in A Quiet Place: Part II (2020). Those films were set more than a year and a half after the blind, sound-hunting aliens arrived on Earth—now, we finally get to see what the world was right as the alien invasion was underway. 

“A Quiet Place: Day One might be my favorite of the series. The city setting brings new thrills and nail-biting suspense,” Discussing Film‘s Andrew Salazar wrote on Twitter. “But what truly sets this apart is Lupita Nyong’o and director Michael Sarnoski telling a poignant story about finding inner peace, even during the apocalypse.”

Check out the final trailer below. A Quiet Place: Day One hits theaters on June 28.
