“…time to go back. #PartII 5-15-20,” Krasinski said in a Friday Instagram post that showed the red lights that became synonymous with the threats in the first movie.

“A Quiet Place” starred Krasinski, Blunt, Jupe and Simmonds and grossed $340 million at the global box office. Since then, the film has won several awards including the Critics’ Choice for Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Blunt. Krasinski also wrote the screenplay.

The film was about a family that has to live in complete silence, otherwise, creatures will hunt them. Even the most normal tasks become daunting: eating dinner with the family, playing board games or going fishing makes the characters fear for their lives.
