Survival is made difficult as the world is now inhabited by blind monsters, who have managed to wipe out half the world's population by using their super sharp sense of hearing.

Emily Blunt reprises her role as determined Evelyn Abbott, who is desperately seeking a new home for her children Regan (Millicent Simmonds) and Marcus (Noah Jupe).

John Krasinski (Emily Blunt's real-life husband) also returns as A Quiet Place II director, this time having written and produced the sequel.

Despite A Quiet Place being a runaway success when it was released in 2018, neither Emily, nor John, were keen to do a sequel initially.

However, when John got a new idea that he wouldn't stop thinking about, Emily knew a sequel was on the cards.

"I was the one who was even more steadfast about not coming back," she told Den of Geek.

"I think [the concept] crept up on him. I think once an idea is that good, it clings to you and it's very hard to shake."

John, who shares two daughters with Emily, has described A Quiet Place and its sequels as a "love letter" to his family life.

"The first film is about the promise you make as a parent, that if you stick with me, I can keep you safe forever," he said. "That's a promise that I think all parents know will be broken.

"I realised when that promise is broken, that's what growing up is... So if the first one is a love letter to my kids, then this is a weird letter to my kids about the dream that I have for them. I hope they're this positive, I hope they're this courageous, and they can go into the dark and light a candle."

A Quiet Place II was initially scheduled to be released in 2020, but was forcibly delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

We're staying silent as we creep into the cinema to watch this...
