Horror franchise A Quiet Place is turning its attention to the past with the release of a prequel, A Quiet Place: Day One.

The movie looks back to reveal how humanity came to be terrorised by the vicious, sonar monsters we have come to know in Part One and Part Two.

Here is everything that we know so far.

A Quiet Place: Day One is set to be released in cinemas on 28 June. It was originally due to arrive in March 2023 but was delayed several times.

A streaming release date has yet to be announced.

A Quiet Place: Day One is led by Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o, who plays a character called Sam. Stranger Things and Fantastic Four star Joseph Quinn plays Eric.

Djimon Hounsou reprises his role from A Quiet Place Part II, known as "Man on the Island". The cast also includes Alex Wolff, Eliane Umuhire, Alexander John and Jennifer Woodward.

The film is written and directed by Pig filmmaker Michael Sarnoski, and based on a story by John Krasinski, who helmed the first two films.

Yes, a trailer was revealed for A Quiet Place: Day One in February. The teaser clip shows Nyong'o in character as the franchise monsters descend on the planet and begin attacking humanity in their droves.

Sam is seen travelling with Quinn's Eric in one moment, and also meeting Hounsou's character in another where he warns her to keep silent. When she coughs the sound acts as a signal to the creatures which run around outside their building as they wait for them to pass.

A Quiet Place parts one and two takes place over the course of several days from day 471 to day 477 since the alien creatures began their reign of terror. The prequel, like the title suggests, takes place on the first day of their attack, around a year and a half beforehand.

The film follows Nyong'o's Sam, and her fight for survival during the early days of the monster attack. The tagline for the movie is "experience the day the world went quiet" which suggests that the plot centres on the events of just one day.

Apart from this basic premise and tagline, details about the plot are being kept a secret and fans of the franchise will likely have to wait and see if more information will be revealed in due course — or even wait until they're able to watch it in cinemas.
