Get ready to let out your quietest scream, because A Quiet Place Part II is coming to streaming sooner than you think. As part of Paramount Pictures’ new shortened release window for “select upcoming films,” John Krasinski’s buzzy sequel is now available to stream on Paramount+ a mere 45 days after its record-breaking theatrical debut. While the deal seems partially akin to Warner Bros. and HBO Max’s theatrical and streaming strategy, Paramount+ has not announced plans to limit the film’s time on the streamer, and considering how the streaming service is currently building up its library, more Paramount Pictures films could follow suit. Mission: Impossible 7 has already been announced to have a shortened 30-to-45-day theatrical window, like A Quiet Place Part II, but until then, enjoy Krasinski’s sequel with double the scares, double the sound-detecting monsters, and double the dirty feet shots!

A quick word about Constantin Film’s German 4K Ultra HD release of The Neverending Story (available to order from Amazon.de here): Bits readers who have received the 2-disc Blu-ray/4K UHD combo report that both discs are ALL REGION and work just fine on US Blu-ray and 4K players. So if you’re interested, don’t hesitate to import the title here.
Meanwhile, Best Buy has revealed the cover artwork for their 4K Ultra HD Steelbook edition of Frank Darabont’s The Shawshank Redemption, which is due in stores on 9/14, as we’ve long reported in our 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits. A wide release 4K Ultra HD in standard Amaray packaging will also be available. We expect Warner Bros. Home Entertainment to officially announce the title anytime now. Anyway, you can see the Steelbook packaging here...
By the way, Best Buy has also unofficially confirmed the street dates for Warner’s A Clockwork Orange in 4K (9/21), as well as Universal’s Rear Window and Vertigo as 4K singles (9/7). All three of these films are on the way to 4K Ultra HD on the dates noted, and Best Buy will have exclusive Steelbook packaging for each.
Also today, here’s something very cool: Krzysztof Kieslowski’s magnificent Three Colors Trilogy (Blue, White, and Red) is coming to remastered Blu-ray & 4K Ultra HD in France on November 2 from MK2. Now, it’s possible that the MK2 release will not include English subtitles, so it’s best to know that before pre-ordering (we’ll try to confirm as soon as possible). In the meantime, if you do wish to pre-order, you can do so now here at Amazon.fr and Amazon.de. And here’s a look at the early temp art for the release...
Finally today, for you cinephiles, we’ve got an interesting article for you to check out from Fast Company on how Netflix mandates the use of digital cameras with “true 4K UHD sensors” for all of its Netflix Original film projects. You can find that here. (And thanks to Bits reader Joe G. for the link!)
All right, we’ll leave you with a look at the cover artwork for a number of the titles mentioned above, with Amazon pre-order links...
Back tomorrow with more. Stay tuned…

Listen up.is a near-silent sequel but it's got even more to say in the pandemic era. Written and directed by John Krasinski, with Emily Blunt and Cillian Murphy on screen, the suspenseful thriller is filled with precision-tooled suspense even if it doesn't expand on the 2018 original as much as it could.
Back in March 2020, A Quiet Place Part II was only days away from theaters when COVID blew up cinematic schedules. More than a year later, I finally saw the film in a theater with social distancing and health screening measures in place. Like, it's hit streaming services quickly, streaming now on Paramount Plus (formerly CBS All Access). It's but it is available to rent or buy in digital, and on Blu-ray and DVD July 27 -- including a combo pack containing both Quiet Place films.
Packed with tension, the sequel returns to a world in which aliens are good listeners and the slightest noise can kill. Emily Blunt is back from the first film, bruised and shaky as a postpartum mum keeping a lid on loss and pain as she fights to put one foot in front of the other. It's an agonizing combination of grief and determination, evoking the horrible agony of seeing your children in pain.
Entertain your brain with the coolest news from streaming to superheroes, memes to video games.
Millicent Simmonds is a strong lead as the daughter determined to turn her deafness into an advantage. Her resolve to go above and beyond drives the story, testing the parental caution of her loved ones. Meanwhile, Noah Jupe gets the short end of the stick in terms of doing stuff that seems kinda ill-advised, but the actor sells the experience of being a scared kid in a scary world.
In a particularly shrewd piece of casting, Cillian Murphy replaces John Krasinski as a new father figure. Maybe it's the amount of Peaky Blinders I binged during lockdown, but Murphy brings a huge amount of tension just by showing up. He's literally introduced as a doting dad at a little league game and still manages to induce a cold sweat of unease. The star of 28 Days Later, Inception andbrings such an ambiguity and potential volatility to any role, he's the exact opposite of Krasinski's fatherly reliability.
Like the first film,, and expertly done. From the chaotic opening, the film deftly switches between noisy carnage and nail-biting silence, although it isn't built around the deaf daughter's noiseless perspective as much as the first film. What was innovative and unique then is deployed lightly here, although Krasinski isn't above busting out the occasional cheap jump scare just to keep you on your toes.
If anything, this second outing shows these films are more than just gimmicky sound design.marries beautifully with the sound design and music. In the tensest moments the camera creeps remorselessly, the frame filling with agonizingly slow movement, and at its peak crosscutting between different nerve-racking story strands to ratchet up the tension. There's a great shot where the camera swirls in from above a terrified character, a jarring angle that meshes the visuals with the sound to immerse you in the character's disorientation and fear.
Although conceived well before the pandemic, the Quiet Place movies have taken on a new resonance in the COVID era. The cataclysm begins with vague and wildly misinterpreted news reports from China before dramatically arriving closer to home. Survival depends on the smallest, simplest precautions. Having gotten used to being locked down in their bubble, the family takes its first tentative steps venturing out, when they must creep through the world without touching anything as the most innocuous of objects and the most everyday urges could kill. And just as bad as the threat itself is the constant stress about how other people are reacting.
By asking how people respond to that threat, part 2 takes a step into more familiar post-apocalyptic genre territory. What does it take to survive? Can empathy and hope endure, or does saving your skin mean losing your humanity? These are all familiar questions from zombie movies and the like, and A Quiet Place II doesn't put much effort into imagining what's happened in the wider world so it sidesteps comparisons with other post-apocalyptic societies.
The pleasure of TV show The Walking Dead, for example, is seeing the various communities that cope and restructure in wildly different ways. But A Quiet Place Part II doesn't take advantage of its unique story world. The sequel stretches rather than enlarges the core idea. It's a good idea, but it's still only one idea.
Part 2 does make use of a wider range of environments for more nerve-shredding set pieces. But ultimately it fudges the world-building with only vague hints about the causes or consequences of the aural apocalypse. You might expect a creature feature sequel to level up a bigger, badder strain of monsters -- they fly now! -- but this second outing is more of a continuation than an escalation. If you think about it afterward when your heart rate has returned to normal, the story loops back without introducing any major twist, ending with a whimper rather than a bang. (Here's the, with spoilers!)
Like the first outing, this sequel in some respects wants to have its cake and eat it too. In both films the presence of a baby is set up to be a huge problem because the little mite could scream uncontrollably at any moment. But while Krasinski is happy to throw some brutal obstacles at the non-infant characters, and protecting the baby is a major driver of the characters' actions, the film doesn't follow through on the danger posed by a screaming baby. There are flashes of nasty macabre horror, but the movie ends up tip-toeing around them to stay the right side of a mass audience.
Part 1 found its thrills by showing a family already equipped to survive this specific disaster. This second entry misses the opportunity to reveal how others survive and communicate without those specific skills. Still, it does build on the pleasures of the first film by showing characters coming up with capable and creative solutions to the awful situation. They make mistakes but never do any dumb stuff just to advance the plot. Sure, people might have stood more of a chance if they tidied the loose crap off their desks, and why is the fate of humanity pinned to some cryptic clue?
OK, so like the first film, the various solutions the characters adopt might not hold up to scrutiny. (Why didn't they just live by the waterfall?) But in the moment it feels satisfying, smart and believable. Taut and economical yet fully realized, the film is expertly constructed from intricate setups and punch-the-air pay-offs. Every safe place has its own danger, every solution its own problems, and every choice comes back to haunt you.
