About the film:

A Quiet Place: Day One (2024) is a prequel in The Quiet Place Series, where creatures that landed on Earth hunt and kill at speeds unbeknownst to mankind. However, they cannot see, so the only way they know if someone is near is if they hear them. And you only survive if you don’t make a sound.

I wanted to explore what the end of the world looked like for people that didn’t have an established relationship, or a reason to care about each other.”

—Dir. Michael Sarnoski for Empire

The first film in the series, A Quiet Place (2018), garnered 37 wins and 128 nominations, paving the way to A Quiet Place Part II (2020). These first two films follow a family who take immeasurable strides to survive in this world. A Quiet Place: Day One (2024) tells the origin story of the creatures that have taken over the livelihood of all that has breath.
