“A Quiet Place” Hits Home Video July 10th

John Krasinski's horror smash A Quiet Place was one of the most unexpected massive hits of 2018. The highest-grossing non-comic book movie of the year has made an astonishing $183 million thus far (and more than $300 million worldwide), making it one of the biggest horror movies of all time.

The film, about a family living in a post-apocalyptic world on the run from creatures with supersonic hearing, featured a lot of silence, yet still managed to be one of the most intense mainstream films of the year.

Now you can bring it home to share with your family. A Quiet Place will hit Blu-ray and DVD on July 10. But if you just can't wait (or you've got the right set-up for it), the film will be released on digital and 4K UHD on June 26. The high-def versions of the movie include three behind-the-scenes featurettes, including one on the crucial sound design.



About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
