A Quiet Place 2 was set to release next week, but due to the Coronavirus outbreak, director John Krasinski announced they are delaying the film.
Paramount Pictures was in full swing promoting the sequel of A Quiet Place, with the casting doing the press rounds last week. Here’s what Krasinski had to say in his statement on Twitter:
Paramount Picture followed Krasinski’s statement up addressing the delay of the film’s worldwide release.
“After much consideration, and in light of the ongoing and developing situation concerning coronavirus and restrictions on global travel and public gatherings, Paramount Pictures will be moving the worldwide release of A Quiet Place Part II. We believe in and support the theatrical experience, and we look forward to bringing this film to audiences this year once we have a better understanding of the impact of this pandemic on the global theatrical marketplace. “
Is This The Right Move For A Quiet Place Part II?
A Quiet Place is a franchise that deserves to have a shared experience. The first film was a unique theater-going experience, with audiences around the world afraid to make a sound because it would compromise the safety of our characters on screen. A Quiet Place 2 intensifies that experience. It’s best viewed surrounded by other theater-goers, sharing the same scares and moments of intensity. It’s also the type of film that you’re going to want to talk about with a crowd around you.
This is the second major film to push back their release date, with the first being Daniel Craig’s James Bond film, No Time To Die. Neither has announced their new release dates. Current films at the box office, like i, will benefit because they can remain king of the mountain longer than they would normally be. However, we may start seeing a decline in theater attendance due to Coronavirus, which will only compound the fact that attendance in theaters has been down the last couple of years.
