Actress Lupita Nyong’o posed with a feline friend while promoting horror movie A Quiet Place: Day One.

The 41-year-old, known for her roles in 12 Years A Slave (2013) and Us (2019), was pictured alongside her furry co-star Schnitzel the cat, who she can be seen carrying in the film’s trailer.

The pair were also joined by Stranger Things star Joseph Quinn, who debuted a shaved head at the event in London.

The suspense-filled post-apocalyptic movie serves as a prequel to the films A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place Part II.

In the trailer for the forthcoming film, Nyong’o appears after the text “Day One” flashes on screen and is seen carrying a cat on a busy street before beams of light flood the sky.

The action-filled teaser also shows Quinn, Nyong’o and Schnitzel being pursued by a number of monsters.

The first two A Quiet Place films followed the Abbott family as they fought for survival in a world where most humans had been killed by blind monsters with an acute sense of hearing.
