A Quiet Place 2
A couple of years ago, sophisticated horror flick A Quiet Place notched box-office returns of $340m on a budget of $17m. So of course there’s a sequel. Emily Blunt returns as mother Evelyn Abbott, with her two kids – and a mysterious man in her life (Cillian Murphy). The monsters with the sensitive ears are back too. Blunt’s real-life husband, John Krasinski, is writing and directing again, which means you can be quietly hopeful of another masterclass in tension.

Fresh out of jail, he teams up with fellow misfits Bobby Cannavale and Audrey Tautou, and is soon on the run again. Keep an eye out for Susan Sarandon, Jon Hamm and Christopher Walken along the way.
