John Krasinski has announced that the A Quiet Place Part II release date has been pushed back due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns. The new release date has not been announced.
Paramount Pictures had set the A Quiet Place Part II release date for international markets starting on March 18, with a North American release set for March 20.
In his post, which you can view below, Krasinski says: “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 til we CAN all see it together! So here’s to our group movie date! See you soon!”
The film joins No Time to Die and Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway as one of the major films to be delayed due to the pandemic, though the A Quiet Place sequel is definitely the closest to release to make such a big move.
