John Krasinski Is Overwhelmed By Stephen King's Reaction To 'A Quiet Place'
A Quiet Place has earned a lot of praises from celebrities but probably the greatest to commend the thriller was the master of the genre himself, King, who was behind the critically acclaimed film It. During his guest stint at the Late Night With Seth Meyers, Krasinski revealed the details of the surreal moment.
Apparently, King emailed him, and one of the things Krasinski found out was that they were both fans of Red Sox.
"He said, 'if you ever want my tickets,' and I was like," Krasinski said before acting out like he fainted out of shock.
All Praises for 'A Quiet Place'
King, in a tweet, called the film "an extraordinary piece of work" and praised the acting. However, for the master, what really took home the prize was the silence and the camera work, clearly praising Krasinski, the director. Coming from the multiawarded author of loads of horror and thriller books, it can be said that The Office actor is effective in doing horrors as well.
One who expressed his love for the movie was Ryan Reynolds, who said he already watched A Quiet Place twice in a week. The Deadpool actor and his wife, Blake Lively, are good friends with Krasinski and Blunt, and actually go on double dates.
NBA superstar LeBron James, who already announced his love for the horror genre, tweeted he would be watching the film with his wife. Krasinski also gained a fan in Chris Pratt, who encouraged other people to watch A Quiet Place in the big screen as well.
It debuted at $50 million and placed second to Black Panther. It is predicted to reach $100 million during the weekend. With this and King's approval, the film could open a lot of opportunities for Krasinski. This wasn't his directorial debut as it actually is the third one, but is the first film he directed for a giant studio.
'A Quiet Place' Plot
A Quiet Place revolves around a family who must not make a sound to survive. It was set post-apocalyptic, where blind alien-like monsters with uber-sensitive hearing hunt for living creatures who make loud sounds.
One of the highlights of the film was when Blunt, who played the mother in the film, was in labor and couldn't make a sound even at a heightened feeling of pain.
