Emily Blunt in A QUIET PLACE, from Paramount Pictures.
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are a married couple with children, and now they’re also cinematic collaborators in the highly anticipated horror thriller A Quiet Place.
Krasinski also co-wrote the screenplay and directed the feature which centers on a family (Blunt, Krasinski, Noah Jupe, Millicent Simmonds) who are being hunted by creatures who track their prey via sound. The flick, which has been receiving excellent word of mouth, is high on tension and scant on dialogue.
“For me the creatures were always secondary to what I fell in love with the screenplay,” said Blunt. “For me, in many ways as a mother of two girls it represented my deepest fear of not being able to protect your children and what that must feel like. It scared me to take on this role.”
Click on the media bar to hear Blunt explain how she and Krasinski approached the film with a real sense of vulnerability:
Born in China, a Disneynature feature narrated by John Krasinski), hits Blu-ray and On Demand August 29.
The project centers on three animal families (a panda bear mother, a 2-year-old golden snub-nosed monkey, a mother snow leopard) as they live within the bamboo forests and their respective habitats in far northeast China. Chinese filmmaker Lu Chuan directed the feature and Emmy winning Barnaby Taylor composed the score.
The Blu-ray release comes with in-depth special features includes the arduous process of the filmmaking team as they captured footage of these animals in the wild (“Panda Suits & Bamboo Shoots,” “Walking with Monkeys,” and “Masters of Camouflage”). Also included is the “Everything Everything” music video performed by American Authors and a featurette (“Disneynature: Get Inspired, Get Involved” on how Disneynature and the Disney Conservation are doing their part as well as encouraging movie lovers to make a difference within the conservation universe.
One of this year’s most anticipated movies is Detroit, director Kathryn Bigelow’s latest collaboration with screenwriter Mark Boal. Bigelow’s last film was 2012’s acclaimed Zero Dark Thirty, and now she chronicles the five days of civil unrest that occurred over five days in the Michigan city.
The latest trailer features John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as a police officer who’s questioned about an incident which killed three youths. Although the officer is attempting to bring the truth to the forefront, the investigators may be concocting their own version of what really happened. This possible frame job is juxtaposed against the backdrop of the violence and tensions that erupt in Detroit, with Bigelow infusing her trademark documentary feel in to the proceedings.
Detroit, co-starring Will Poulter, John Krasinski, and Anthony Mackie opens August 4. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
