Is There ‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ Trailer?

The official trailer dropped in February 2024. The clip begins by counting backward from the events of the original film to a time before the planet had to go silent. Nyong’o is seen walking through the bustling city streets in New York City and all of sudden several items appear in the sky before crashing onto Earth. Aliens appear and attack anyone who screams.

The trailer hints that the movie will explain “why our world went quiet.”

Three months later, a second trailer showed Sam (Nyong’o) and Eric (Quinn) agreeing to team up and navigate their exit from the city after chaotic events leave them in mortal danger. “We can help each other, we have to get out of the city,” Eric can be heard telling Sam while they map their escape route in a deserted diner.

The rest of the teaser follows the duo as they meet up with other escapees, flee from creatures and attempt to stay quiet to preserve their lives. “This is the end of days,” a voiceover says. “No more people, no more New York. No more nothing.”

A poster for the film released at the same time warns, “Stay quiet, stay alive.
