A Quiet Place: Day One: The Storyline
As of this writing, specific plot details remain sparse. Could we say that they keep things… quiet to create anticipation? We can glean from the title and what little information there is what the film will likely be about. First, it’s being described as a spin-off rather than a “Threequel,” meaning it will focus on new characters and storylines rather than continuing the Abbott family story. The title of day one lets us know that the film will likely take place on and around the first day of the alien invasion.
The original film opened months after the invasion and later jumped ahead to about a year. Part II began on day one and shows the Abbotts enjoying a normal day with their friends and neighbors before a mysterious meteor crashes into Earth. While we see the immediate aftermath of the invasion, it’s limited to the first few minutes of the film. We still have learned very little about the aliens and why they came to earth. Afterward, Part II picks up where the first movie left off.
There are several ways the spin-off could approach day one. Perhaps it will show other characters enjoying their lives just before the invasion in a similar way Part II Perhaps we will see different leaders around the world reacting to the invasion. The spin-off also has an opportunity to explore the lore behind the creatures. How did people find out they couldn’t hear? We could see the populace race to understand the creatures before they destroy everyone on Earth. It probably wouldn’t all take place on day one, but starting on day one of the invasion would be a great place to start teaching us more about these hostile invaders that have plagued Earth.
Specific plot information will likely be announced as production progresses.
