John Krasinski Surprised Fans at Saturday Night's Preview Screenings of 'A Quiet Place 2' at Valley View and Pinecrest


Clevelanders who scooped advance preview tickets to see A Quiet Place 2 at Cinemark at Valley View or Silverspot at Pinecrest Saturday night not only got to see the highly anticipated action sequel that had sat on the shelf through the pandemic ahead of its official May 28th opening but were welcomed by Jim Halpert himself.

John Krasinski, who co-wrote, directed and starred in the first installment with wife Emily Blunt and who wrote and directed the sequel, has been on a PR tear promoting the follow-up. And that included a stop in Cleveland.

Introduced by Josh and Maria Cribbs at the Pinecrest showing and Mike Wendt of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission at Valley View, Krasinski talked to the audiences, signed autographs and posed for pictures. A video recap from Krasinski's Twitter below for everyone who missed out.
