Paramount has confirmed that John Krasinski and Emily Blunt’s thriller “A Quiet Place Part II” has been delayed amid concerns around an escalating coronavirus pandemic.
The film was slated to roll out internationally on March 18, with a U.K. debut scheduled for March 19 and a North American release set for March 20.
John Krasinski made the announcement on social media 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," he wrote in a letter to fans. "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! See you soon!"
Paramount confirmed the news in a statement shortly after: "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."
This move from Paramount follows Sony delaying “Peter Rabbit 2” by five months earlier this week, and MGM, Eon and Universal postponing the roll-out of James Bond pic “No Time To Die” from its original launch of April 2 to November 25.
Paramount has not set a new release date for the film yet.
