In the fireworks scene, the (first) fireworks are supposed to be high in the sky above a cornfield, and the camera shot is from ground level (looking up). But you can see that the filmmakers simply superimposed fireworks over the cornfield, as the streamers are clearly in front of the corn plants. See more »

It's a quiet post-apocalyptic world where monsters are hunting using their superior hearing. Evelyn (Emily Blunt) and Lee Abbott (John Krasinski) are carefully raising their deaf daughter Regan and young son Marcus in this world.
There is something compelling about the silences. If The Artist can clean up the awards, this definitely deserves something. The great thing about the silence is the use of sound. The shock of running water is a real jolt. There is actual tension within the quiet. I'm less impressed with the creatures' weakness which struck me as Mars Attacks! or something like that. In general, this is a nice original idea done well by first time director Krasinski.
