With so many films being delayed in such short notice due to the coronavirus spread, it was uncertain if John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place Part II, which was set to release next week, would be affected by these concerns. Now it seems that Paramount is taking action, because A Quiet Place Part II has now been delayed with no new release date announced for the film. The announcement was made by director and star John Krasinski, who made the announcement on his Instagram page.
Krasinski’s post was geared to fans of the first Quiet Place, stating that he wanted the film to be seen by everyone. However, due to the current environment, Krasinski felt this would be an inappropriate time to release the film. He ends the statement by saying, “I’m gonna wait to release the film til we CAN all see it together! So here’s to our group movie date!” Therefore the film will not be premiering on its initial release date of March 20th 2020.
The downside is that, unlike the recent delays of Peter Rabbit 2 and No Time to Die, no new release date for Quiet Place 2 has been announced. Depending on how the situation with Coronavirus goes, the film could be released in April in place of No Time to Die, or even a summer release. However, Paramount has yet to give a statement regarding the film’s new release date. Hopefully any further change of A Quiet Place Part II‘s release date and the Coronavirus will not escalate from where it’s at currently.
