Then we jump to day 474 of the alien invasion, right where we left the Abbot family three years ago.

Krasinski’s Lee has sacrificed his life for his family, and Evelyn (Emily Blunt) must find a new refuge for her deaf daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds), nervous son Marcus (Noah Jupe) and her new baby.

A fire on the horizon leads us to Emmett (Cillian Murphy), an old friend hiding in the furnace of a ruined steel mill.

But the brave Regan has had enough of laying down. The youngster used her deafness to her advantage in the first film, and she’s eager to investigate a cryptic radio broadcast.
