Comments

  • Director and actor

  • Why do they have to stay quiet ?

    • If they make a noise a monster will eat them

  • One of my absolute favourite movies! ❤❤❤

  • just play monopoly, dont go outside, just play monopoly, SINS: how about the father scaveges for food and the mother babysits the children at the house

  • Wait wasn’t this move called “A Dwight Place”

  • I heard “Hi I’m Jim Halbert”

  • Gotta love John

  • he is DADDY

  • I thought the monopoly game pieces were exchanged for softer pieces to reduce noise.

  • don't shave

  • Script for a quiet place: ...

  • Was he sad or mad when his person died?

  • "it's about a family that has to be silent in order to survive." ....My kids would be eaten within the first 20 seconds

  • He said this is the first time you see the effects of sound in the fiction but it was actually at the 10 minute mark with the rocket and this scene is 20 minutes into the movie.

  • So all the big snorers are dead?

  • This probably could've made a ton more money if they released it on Halloween or at any other time that the Avengers wasn't playing. duh?!

  • Did you kill Dwight and take your family to live on Shrute farms?

  • Hey I'm Mr Fantastic

  • It terrifies me that I kinda want to watch a horror movie now.

  • Where did the beets go? Why are they replaced with corn?

  • I'm calling it: A Quiet Place is gonna be nominated for sound design, original screenplay, editing, actress/actor in a leading role and possibly best director at this year's awards season.

  • i just realized the girl was deaf omg that's why she never talked

  • I got an ad with Jenna Fischer before this video😂😂

  • This movie certainly had its flaws, but I absolutely love the concept behind it

  • Why do they need a lantern the barn is clearly lit up.

  • JIM

  • Anyone here because of the office?

  • So proud of the comments The Office fam yeah 💜

  • Aka. Jim breaks down Dunder Mifflin’s sales tactics

  • 😲😲Theory: this is a sequel to The Office!After Jim leaves the scranton Branch he leaves Pam and has kids BOOM end of the world he takes them all to Dwight's barn and lives out eventually sacrificing himself to save the kids!

  • I was trying to open my bag of candy during the movie and my girlfriend hit me because it was to loud

  • he legit looks like my geography teacher

  • I look at him and see Jim

  • Thank you for using a Deaf actor for a character that is Deaf!

  • i wanna watch a full breakdown of the film narrated by him

  • WOW HE STILL ALIVE??!!!

  • I've been trying to figure out why he looks so familiar to me and then I realized he was on that show The Office

  • What if you're sick and you need to sneeze or cough? Lol

  • i can only see him as jim

  • ... wtf Jim

  • JIMMM

  • Jim ?

  • Out of all the scenes this is one that doesn’t needs much explaining

  • wow

  • i wonder how much dwight changed jim so that he had to move

  • i feel like it would be soo hard if you were deaf in a quiet place. because you have to hear..you know you have to hear if you are making sound.

  • What do u do if you need to go to the bathroom

  • Such a fantastic movie

  • JIM why are you cheating on me!! Said pam

  • Her hearing aid is called a cochlear implant. It’s a really advanced type of ‘hearing aid’ that converts sounds into electrical signals ands allows severely deaf people ‘hear’.

  • It’s so cool seeing people talk about what they love doing 👌

  • That girl looks like a sister of the kid with no teeth in stranger things

  • Is she really deaf???

  • For all if u making jokes about the script... It was probably hard for them to memorize because they had to use sign language and first they had to learn it...

  • *THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID* *dies*

  • Imagine dying in your sleep or waking up with these creatures in your room becouse of snoring 😰

  • I don’t get why everyone’s saying she killed the brother she gave him the toy without the batteries what’s wrong with him having that without them it’s his fault because he grabbed the batteries heck he might’ve grabbed the toy without her anyway since the family didn’t seem to mind that much

  • I love john soo much

  • Stranger things season 3 is a quiet place. Can’t wait for real season 3 of stranger things though

  • I made SO MUCH noise while watching this movie

  • My weed so LOUD I couldn't smoke in silence.

  • This movie remarked my infatuation of John. Such a daddy x1000

  • Good job Jim 🥳 love the incorporation of Pam and the Beet Farm.

  • michael scott would be purged

  • i most definitely do not wanna see a sequel *if it's not gonna be about this family...* i want to know how did the mom cope with a newborn and two more kids, without a dad and now that most of their stuffs are ruined and how are they going to live on... i love this movie because of the storyline ofcourse but also because of the family and all the details. I'm not even into the monsters so much and there has been rumors that the sequel is going to have different ppls perspectives like military (which if you ask me is not going to be fun i think it's just going to be a lot of killing and it's basically not gonna be as good as it was with the family.

  • Should've just moved near the river

  • The movie sucked

  • John Krasinski should probably explain THE VERY VERY START of the whole apocalypse

  • Great Movie

  • Can people stop talking about the office whenever John krasinski is anywhere lmao

  • Sir Onga film Eppathan pathen. Super sir. Delivery scene excellent

  • Can blind people even watch this movie?

  • Jim's commentary on this movie makes it so much more beautiful omg

  • My family would of been dead

  • That’s not John that’s Jim

  • The scripts probably half a page

  • If you also made the lantern out of yarn none of that would have happened, just sayin

  • that beard tho

  • I LOVE THIS MAN AND THIS MOVIE SO MUCH

  • I call clickbait!!! You know dang well this isn't the lantern scene we wanted answers for!!

  • I need a sequel

  • I cried when John screamed to save the kids lives 😭

  • Ngl I thought this movie was about a family who were all deaf and was confused how they could be quiet if they couldn’t hear but it makes sense now lol

  • Proud of him! He is a director, an actor, producer, he deserves his success.

  • John Krasinski? ThAt iSn thE nAmE I Remember

  • John gives elaborate explanation of lantern... John, its called FORESHADOWING

  • During the movie I kept screaming “WHERES PAM?!”

  • I think Jim took this prank to far

  • i loved this movie so much , it had a lot of meaning & i watched it w my bestfriend , once again , it was the best !!

  • Omg I didn’t know she was actually deaf...

  • That's Jim Halpert

  • The longest office silence streak

  • GET WITH PAM!!!!!!

  • My Social Studies teacher went to this movie and this movie is almost completely silent and he was eating peanut m and m’s and he said this lady was giving him the death stare half the time.

  • Wait that’s hella cool how he’s a director and the actor

  • Awww this makes me sad I miss the office

  • why tf did he say "erbs"? that's so weird

  • A quiet place script: Dad: ......... Mum: ......... Daughter: ........... Monster: sirduwjdbruzjsbsidh!!!!!!!

  • The dad's death was low key the saddest thing

    • +isabel the rat yea was shocked he died so fast

    • Young Legend i don’t think i was shocked i was just shocked cause that lil child wooshed out of there

    • +Wiggywonka yea and that sucks😪

    • +Anurag B there was also the little child that died as well that was sad to

    • i mean it was the only real sad part in the movie, other than the kid dying in the first scene, which doesn't affect us as much since we didnt see him grow as a character

  • “it was non-negotiable for me to cast a deaf actress because the character is deaf” THANK YOU JOHN. genuine representation is so important.
