Cillian Murphy looks so different in role in trailer for 'A Quiet Place: Part II'

Fans of Peaky Blinders actor Cillian Murphy have been left shocked by his drastically altered appearance this week, after the trailer for the upcoming sequel to A Quiet Place dropped on social media.

The Irish actor, best known for portraying the character of Tommy Shelby in the hit period gangster drama, sports a thick grey beard when he appears, playing an as-yet-untitled character in the sequel whom Emily Blunt's character Evelyn asks for help from.

Check out Cillian's new look in the trailer:

The plot of the movie is still being deliberately kept quiet (pun unintended), although the first film ended with the family discovering the secret weakness of the blind extraterrestrial creatures with an acute sense of hearing who destroyed civilization

The movie's official synopsis states: "Members of the Abbott family and a mysterious stranger (Cillian Murphy) fight for survival against otherworldly creatures that hunt by sound."

Commenting on the upcoming sequel in a recent interview with Digital Spy, Krasinski described how excited he was with the project, stating: "This is a world you can play in, this isn’t just a character to remake… it’s actually a world, which is a whole different, very unique experience."

Take a look at the teaser trailer for the sequel below: 

He continued: "It’s not like Alien or Jaws where the main villain is the thing you’re repeating; it’s an actual entire set of rules and the circumstance that the world has undergone that you can play in very different facets."

In the same interview, Emily Blunt stated: "I think actually it’s now what’s the next chapter and what happens next. I think people feel very invested in this family… I think it’s such an open book right now, and certainly for John who is lasering into something as we speak."

A Quiet Place: Part II is due to be released in cinemas on March 20, 2020.
