We can’t stay silent about this – the sequel to John Krasinski’s psychological thriller A Quiet Place is currently delayed due to coronavirus. The star of The Office revealed back in March that the release for A Quiet Place 2 would be pushed back because of the global pandemic, but now we have a tentative date: September 4, 2020 (Labor Day).
On Twitter, Krasinski said, “As insanely excited as we are for all of you to see this movie…I’m gonna wait to release the film til we CAN all see it together! Here’s to our group movie date! See you soon!”
