Suspenseful dramas take many forms, as well illustrated by Sam Mendes' 1917, winner of two Golden Globe Awards. In the wartime thriller, two soldiers (Dean-Charles Chapman, George MacKay) must race the clock and cross dangerous enemy territory to deliver a vital message before hundreds of lives are lost in a battle that is doomed to defeat.
Now that 1917 has opened in theaters nationwide, we began wondering what future suspenseful pictures await. Here are three upcoming dramas that look like they are taking different approaches to delivering equally gripping theatrical experiences.
Hush! The trailer suggests that writer/director John Krasinski may briefly show how Evelyn Abott (Emily Blunt) survived before the events in A Quiet Place and then focus on how she and her children (including Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe) cope with frightening new perils in the outside world. Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou also star.

We can't wait to see the dark horror-thriller from director Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars), which teases a great deal of suspense. Five young mutants, portrayed by Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Blu Hunt and Henry Zaga, must discover their own abilities and identities while held against their will in a mysterious facility.

A teacher (Keri Russell) begins to suspect that something is horribly amiss when one of her young students tells a frightening tale at school. What if what he says is true?
