Emily Blunt in McQueen for ‘The Quiet Place II’ NYC premiere: cute or dated?

Emily Blunt, John Krasinski at arrivals...

Don’t hate me, but I never saw A Quiet Place. I never saw it because I’m a scaredy cat and it looked… unsettling and like there were a lot of tense jump-scares. And I can’t do those. So I’m happy that John Krasinski and Emily Blunt had so much success while working together, but I really have no frame of reference for the sequel, A Quiet Place II. From the trailers, I thought that the sequel was actually a prequel, and that the story was about how modern life ended and these monsters came around. But basically, what we’re seeing in the trailers are just flashbacks and there’s a real story of what happens after the story of the first film. Djimon Hounsou and Cillian Murphy have joined the cast as well.

Anyway, here are some photos of Emily Blunt and John Krasinski at last night’s New York premiere. This shade of red is certainly going around, isn’t it? It’s a very particular kind of orange-red which I’ve seen a lot over the past few weeks especially. Orange-red is definitely having a moment. Emily’s dress is Alexander McQueen – she wears a lot of British designers, which I’ve always liked about her. This is… okay. It’s not the best thing I’ve seen on her, but it’s a solid look. What bugs me a little bit is that Emily looks more and more “tweaked” every time I see her. I feel like there’s too much Botox happening here, as much as that pains me to say. John looks nice, but his Dolce & Gabbana suit is a bit TOO blue.

John also had some nice words for Emily as an actress, telling ET: “She is without a doubt the most tremendous actress of our time in my opinion.” That’s so nice coming from her husband, but is it true? I think she’s one of the most talented actresses of her generation, for sure.

    That dress is fab. And yes she needs to lay off the botox a bit. She looks like she’s having a hard time even smiling.

  2. Yati says:

    She’s sooo pretty. I like the dress up to the point your eyes meet the bottom part.

  3. Stacy Dresden says:

    What color would you call that?

  4. OriginalRose says:

    I couldn’t cope with Quiet Place, i crochetted veey intensely while it was on so i didn’t have to watch. It was kinda like Bird Box in a way. I won’t be tuning in to the sequel. She’s an extraordinary actress tho

  5. Scollins says:

    I like the dress on Emily. I hate the dress for me. I would’ve thrown it out the dressing room door immediately.

  6. Agirlandherdog says:

    Probably an unpopular opinion, Kaiser, but I don’t feel you’re missing much by not watching it. I didn’t find it scary, and at the very beginning, I was questioning whyTF they did something incredibly stupid, and that kind of set the tone of the movie for me. When my husband and I saw the preview for the trailer, he just gave me this side eye like, really? They’re making a sequel to that trainwreck??

    I may end up watching it though because I love Djimon Hounsou and Cillian Murphy…

    • Talita says:

      I feel the same, I think the story is dumb. I couldn’t find anything special about this movie and their acting/directing.

      Also, I find them off as a couple for some reason.

    • Erinn says:

      Yep. It’s got a huge following. But I don’t get it. It’s just such a silly movie. Maybe seeing it in theaters would make a difference rather than watching at home? But who knows. It’s one of those super well liked pop culture things that I don’t think I’ll ever ‘get’.

    Love the dress but she seriously needs to stop messing with her face.

  9. Lightpurple says:

    A Quiet Place has a lot of jump scares but it is a good film. This sequel looks like it takes place shortly after the first one as she’s still carrying a baby around.

    Me and Bae FINALLY watched “A Quiet Place” this Saturday…Bae screamed at the screen so much…that I’m GLAD we waited to see it at home…

    Great acting…directing and pacing…I mainly watched to see if John is the REAL deal when it comes to screenwriting, acting and directing…as I really haven’t seen him in anything….I already KNOW that Emily is a force to reckon with…acting wise….

    He is….

  11. Kate says:

    I loooove her dress and I really like John’s suit too next to her dress.

  12. smee says:

    “She is without a doubt the most tremendous actress of our time in my opinion.”

    Sorry, but that honor goes to Tilda Swinton, imo

    • Originaltessa says:

      Maybe I’m not seeing Emily in the right roles, because I don’t even think of her as a serous contender for the best actress of her generation.

  13. Crushy says:

    Would never have known that was her. Her face is unrecognizable.

  14. lucy2 says:

    I kind of like the dress.
    I enjoyed the first movie, and at some point will probably watch this one too.

  15. K says:

    Of course it’s full of jump scares, but it’s one of the few scary movies where it was truly justified and not just dumb. It’s a story about survivors of blind creatures who hunt using their incredible sense of hearing, so silence = survival, noise = danger and death. Loved it, but suspense movies are to me what rollercoasters are to others–an enjoyable thrill.

  16. MangoAngel says:

    She always looks a little more tweaked and plastic-y in photographs, but in videos she’s still expressive and animated.

    I do tend to think darker hair suits her better than the blonde, but that’s just me. She’s lovely.

  17. Bread and Circuses says:

    There’s something very wrong about how that dress fits her bosom, but I think it’s a really cool look and the silhouette is amazing on her.
