One of the first movies to be hit by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic was John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place Part II. Initially pegged for a March 20th release, Paramount moved to completely scrap that cinema release as the entertainment industry adjusts to the ever-changing landscape we find ourselves in – and now the hotly anticipated sequel has been given a new release date.
Straight from Paramount, A Quiet Place Part II has been booked in to hit the silver screen on September 4th.
Of course, that new release date all depends on where the world finds itself in five months’ time. At present, more and more countries across the globe are being placed under varying levels of lockdown, with cinemas being just one of so many businesses forced to close their doors for the foreseeable future.
The official blurb on A Quiet Place Part II reads:
Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realise that the creates that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.
A Quiet Place Part II is one of several major movies to have been delayed in recent weeks, with Black Widow, No Time to Die, The New Mutants, and Wonder Woman 1984 just a handful of others to see their planned release temporarily scrapped.
