A Quiet Place 3 release date speculation, cast, plot, and news

A new horror movie sequel to battle sound-sensitive aliens is on the way, and we've got all the info on the A Quiet Place 3 release date.

A Quiet Place 3 release date: Emily Blunt in A Quiet Place 3

When is the A Quiet Place 3 release date? The Quiet Place franchise has terrified and enthralled viewers. Its 2021 sequel, A Quiet Place 2, was the first of the pandemic-era releases to surpass $100 million at the US box office, so it was only a matter of time until a third movie was announced.

A Quiet Place is a post-apocalyptic monster movie that sees alien predators hunting down humans based on audio recognition, meaning you must live as quietly as possible to avoid detection. If that’s not a premise for a trilogy of gripping horror movies, then we don’t know what is. There’s also a prequel in the works, A Quiet Place: Day One, but let’s first take a look at everything we know about the third movie.

A Quiet Place 3 release date speculation

We expect A Quiet Place 3 to arrive in 2025, although an exact date is still to be confirmed.

John Krasinski has said he will not be back at the helm for this next installment of the science fiction movies. Then again, he will still have a significant creative input. “I came up with the idea,” he says [via Empire]. “The story of the third one, the third installment, is something I came up with.”

The prequel movie, Day One, is coming out in 2024, and we don’t think they’ll aim to release both movies in the same year. More likely, they’ll wait for the prequel to get audiences hyped up for the franchise again.

Plus, if production begins in 2024, they’ll need at least a year to film and embark on post-production. 2025 seems a long way off, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated right here as and when we hear more.

A Quiet Place 3 release date: Cillian Murphy and Millicent Simmonds as Emmett and Regan in A Quiet Place 2

A Quiet Place 3 cast speculation

We’ll most definitely see the return of Emily Blunt as Evelyn Abbott, Millicent Simmonds as her daughter, Regan, and Noah Jupe as her son, Marcus in the A Quiet Place 3 cast. 

In A Quiet Place 2, we were also introduced to Cillian Murphy as Emmett, who formed a fatherly connection with Regan and helped her fight against the aliens to reach the island. Both remained alive and well (as far as we know) at the end of Part Two and should return together in Part Three.

Unfortunately, Djimon Hounsou, as Man on Island, suffered a vicious attack, and there was no sign of return, which may hint that his character will not feature in the next installment. We were also been treated to an appearance from John Krasinski as Lee Abbott, Evelyn’s husband and Regan and Marcus’s father, in flashbacks, which could continue in A Quiet Place 3.

Here’s the expected cast for A Quiet Place 3:

  • Emily Blunt as Evelyn Abbott
  • John Krasinski as Lee Abbott
  • Millicent Simmonds as Regan Abbott
  • Noah Jupe as Marcus Abbott
  • Cillian Murphy as Emmett

What will happen in A Quiet Place 3?

Since Part Two picked up directly after the events of the first film, we’d be surprised if A Quiet Place 3 didn’t follow suit. 

To pick up from where A Quiet Place Part Two left us, after learning that Regan’s hearing aid feedback is something the aliens are vulnerable to, Regan and Emmett work to trace a strange radio signal they’ve heard playing ‘Beyond the Sea’ on loop.

The radio signal leads them to a bunch of survivors holed up on an island that is a place of safety because the aliens can’t swim. The signal they used was to invite any survivors that were out there to come and join them.

Unfortunately, because it wouldn’t be a horror movie without it, an alien hitches a ride on their boat out to the island, attacking survivors and the character we knew as Man on Island. It was a bloodbath.

Regan manages to change the signal to her hearing aid just in time to save her family back in the bunker (we hope). With the feedback playing over the radio waves, that’s where viewers are left. An intense ending with the potential to fight back against the aliens, but whether it’s successful is left unclear.

During an interview with Collider in May 2021, leading lady Emily Blunt says husband John Krasinski has a “whole arc of ideas that could work” for A Quiet Place 3.

She also discussed the fact that A Quiet Place Part Two was always meant to be part of a trilogy: “I think he just wanted to see how people responded to this one before he fully engaged his brain on the third one. But he has a couple of great ideas.”

Is there A Quiet Place 3 trailer?

We don’t think A Quiet Place 3 trailer will arrive until the beginning of 2025 at the earliest, and that all depends on when they start filming.

Right now, there’s no footage to speak of. At least, in the meantime, we can push forward knowing we’ll be getting some Day One insights very soon.

But be sure to check back, because we’ll update here as soon as a trailer drops for A Quiet Place 3. In the meantime, revisit the trailers for the first two movies here to remind yourself of what’s happened so far!

Where can I watch A Quiet Place 3?

Given that both A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place Part 2 were released theatrically, we would assume that would be the case for the final film in the trilogy.

Of course, it’ll probably end up on streaming services at some point, but expect full big screen chaos for the initial release of this one. Right now, you can watch the first two movies on Amazon Prime or Paramount Plus as part of a streaming subscription!

Honestly, this is one of the most anxiety-inducing cinematic experiences currently available. Not because the movie is too scary, but because it’s always a gamble as to whether the audiences is actually going to stay quiet.
