Shhh!

I wonder if the sequel to ‘A Quiet Place’ could have had a better title than just ‘A Quiet Place Part 2’.

Take a look at some great examples of movie sequels that didn’t settle for just Part 2.

  • ‘Alien’ -> ‘Aliens’
  • ‘Analyze This’ -> ‘Analyze That’
  • ‘28 Days Later’ -> ‘28 Weeks Later’
  • ‘Before Sunset’ -> ‘Before Midnight’
  • ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ -> ‘Ocean’s Twelve’
  • ‘The Fast and the Furious’ -> ‘2 Fast 2 Furious’
  • ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ -> ‘I Still Know What You Did Last Summer’

I’d have named the sequel to this movie ‘A Quieter Place’ and the next movie ‘The Quietest Place’. 

If the franchise became a hit, I’d have named the fourth one, ‘Shhh!’

Takeaway

Your brand name shouldn’t be obvious. It should be outstanding.

 Tell me how would you have named the sequel to ‘A Quiet Place’.

Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
