Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Paramount Pictures is giving a glimpse of the new film A Quiet Place: Day One.

The studio shared a trailer for the post-apocalyptic horror film Wednesday featuring Lupita Nyong'o.

A Quiet Place: Day One is a prequel to the Quiet Place movies directed by John Krasinski and starring Krasinski and Emily Blunt.

The prequel takes place in New York hundreds of days before the events of A Quiet Place (2018), on "day one" of the alien invasion that first introduced the blind but hearing-sensitive creatures featured in the Quiet Place films.

The trailer shows Nyong'o's character fleeing alongside a character played by Joseph Quinn (Stranger Things) as aliens rain down from the skies and terrorize humans in the streets of New York City.

Nyong'o's character is later seen waking up while covered in dust as she and the Man on Island (Djimon Hounsou), a character first introduced in A Quiet Place Part II, are surrounded by aliens.
