The board is again, child!
John Krasinski’s long-awaited A Quiet Place sequel finally hit theaters on May 28. Along with Krasinski’s character Lee pulling a Jack Pearson and returning within the type of flashbacks, followers have been blessed with one other sudden callback to the primary movie: Lee’s notorious whiteboard.
That is proper, the absurd, downright comical dry-erase whiteboard from A Quiet Place — which featured phrases like “CREATURE” and “SURVIVE,” requested questions like “What number of in Space??” and “What’s the WEAKNESS,” and famous observations reminiscent of “Blind” and “Assault sound” — makes a short cameo within the second movie. Thank the lord.
As viewers will recall, in his determined and exhaustive makes an attempt to determine find out how to survive, Lee used whiteboards to assist unpack what he realized in regards to the sound-seeking monsters.
A Quiet Place was dumb as dogshit. Simply inexcusably silly. The household had somewhat dry erase board with “SURVIVE” written on it, like in any other case they could overlook.

The board — in all its simplistic, multi-colored, center faculty glory — obtained lots of shit after the primary movie. Some individuals straight-up hated it, whereas others, like myself and one among my expensive associates, thought it was so hilarious we could not assist however kind of find it irresistible.
One would assume that Krasinski would give attention to the destructive whiteboard suggestions and actively search to distance himself from it within the sequel, however no. He introduced that board again in an unbelievable flex.
The cameo seems early on within the second movie, however once I left the theater over an hour later it was nonetheless contemporary in my thoughts. After I obtained within the automotive, I texted my whiteboard-loving buddy, “Guess what was in A Quiet Place II.” And with out lacking a beat she replied, “The board?” Wonderful.
Whereas Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, and Cillian Murphy undoubtedly delivered highly effective, stirring performances worthy of reward, we’re grateful that the Quiet Place whiteboard cameo is getting some love on Twitter, too.
I wasn’t certain as a result of it’s a sequel, however comfortable to report that A Quiet Place: Half II nonetheless options each of my favourite characters from the unique: the “what’s the weak point” whiteboard and that finger to the lips shush movement.
