John Kransinski's new film, A Quiet Place, has gotten praise from critics and fans alike, but now has also garnered praise from Kransinski's colleagues in Hollywood.
Actors and actresses such as Ryan Reynolds, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, and director James Gunn have commended Kransinski and his wife, Emily Blunt on the horror film and raved it was one of the scariest films of 2018.
John Gets Love From His Peers
Reynolds, who saw the movie twice, shared on his Twitter page that fans should see this film:
I've seen #AQuietPlace twice in one week. SEE THIS FILM! @johnkrasinski and #EmilyBlunt are my new parents. Congratulations, Ryan. — Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) April 8, 2018
Pratt shared the same sentiments on his Instagram account and added that he was "man-crushing" on Krasinski in his post:
HOLY CRAPPP!!!! Stop what you're doing right now ... AND GO SEE "A QUIET PLACE" it's scary, moving, with amazing performances and a totally original idea. A+++ 97% on rotten tomatoes for a reason. Bring a friend. A post shared by chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) on Apr 7, 2018 at 4:25pm PDT
Even the master of the horror genre, Stephen King, praised Krasinski for his work on the film.
A QUIET PLACE is an extraordinary piece of work. Terrific acting, but the main thing is the SILENCE, and how it makes the camera's eye open wide in a way few movies manage. — Stephen King (@StephenKing) April 6, 2018
John's Family Project
A Quiet Place follows the story of the Abott family who, like the rest of the world, must live in silence in order to avoid being hunted by alien-like creatures that are attracted to sound. The film also starsMillicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe. This marks the first time that Krasinski and Blunt starred in a film together, also as husband and wife.
When asked how Krasinki was able to work with his wife on the film and not let it complicate their relationship, the actor replied that the couple worked out all their problems before getting on set and that Blunt was still "the boss."
The couple have been married since 2010 and have two daughters together, Hazel and Violet.
A Quiet Place is in theaters now.
