Star Cineplex, the country's largest multiplex chain, has announced that it will screen the highly anticipated Hollywood post-apocalyptic horror film 'A Quiet Place: Day One' on June 28, coinciding with its international release, reports UNB. 

'A Quiet Place: Day One' is a spin-off prequel to the 2020 film 'A Quiet Place: Part II' and continues the acclaimed 'A Quiet Place' franchise. The original film, released in 2018, and its sequel were directed by renowned American filmmaker-actor John Krasinski.

The franchise's first film centered on a family, with Emily Blunt and John Krasinski portraying a mother and father struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by blind monsters with an acute sense of hearing. The 2020 sequel followed the family's ongoing battle for survival in the same perilous environment.

The much-anticipated prequel follows a new character named Sam, played by Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o, during the early stages of an alien invasion in New York City. These alien creatures possess ultrasonic hearing, adding to the film's suspenseful atmosphere.

Initially conceived by John Krasinski, the spin-off prequel was announced in November 2020, with Jeff Nichols set to write and direct. The project, a joint venture between Platinum Dunes and Sunday Night Productions, is being produced by Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, and Krasinski. However, Nichols stepped down due to creative differences, and Michael Sarnoski took over as writer and director in January 2022. The title 'A Quiet Place: Day One' was revealed during CinemaCon in April 2022.

In addition to the prequel, 'A Quiet Place: Part III,' the third and final installment of the series, is currently in development and slated for release in 2025 under Krasinski's direction. Meanwhile, Stormind Games is developing a video game titled 'A Quiet Place: The Road Ahead,' set to be published by Saber Interactive in 2024, which will expand on the franchise's fictional universe.
