Horror sequel A Quiet Place Part 2 has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, moving from its previously announced March 18 release date. It joins No Time To Die, Fast & Furious 9 and Peter Rabbit 2 as the latest film to switch timings in reaction to how the virus is affecting the world right now. No new release date has been confirmed by studio Paramount Pictures just yet. But according to The Movie Database (TMDb), the movie tentative release date would be December 2020.
Director and star John Krasinski addressed fans of the movie in a brief Twitter message. “One of the things I’m most proud of is that people have said our movie is one you have to see 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!”
