A Quiet Place Part II Release Delayed Due to Coronavirus Concerns
The release of "A Quiet Place Part II" has been delayed due to the coronavirus. The film was originally slated for a March 20 release in the US and no new release date has been announced.
Paramount Pictures released a statement about the decision, saying, "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."
One of the stars of the film, John Krasinski, also released a statement saying, "One of the things I'm most proud of is that people have said our movie is one you have to see all together. Well due to the ever-changing circumstances of what's going on in the world around us, now is clearly not the right time to do that. As insanely excited as we are for all of you to see this movie .. I'm gonna wait to release the film till we CAN all see it together! So here's to our group movie date! See you soon!"
This is just the next in a series of films delaying openings due to the concerns about coronavirus. "James Bond: No Time to Die" and "Peter Rabbit 2" have also been pushed back.
