A Quiet Place Part 2 Release Date Has Been Delayed In Wake Of Coronavirus Outbreak

A Quiet Place Part 2 Release Date Has Been Delayed In Wake Of Coronavirus Outbreak

The release date of horror sequel A Quiet Place Part II has been postponed as the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak escalates, director John Krasinski revealed in a tweet.

A new release date has not yet been specified.

Krasinski wrote: "To all our A Quiet Place fans. One of the things I'm most proud of is that people have said our movie is one that 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 time to do that. As insanely excited as we are for all of you to see the 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 sequel to 2018's surprise hit A Quiet Place is not the only film to be delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Bond movie No Time To Die saw its release date pushed back from April to 12 November.

A Quiet Place Part II will see Emily Blunt reprise her role as Evelyn alongside Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe, who will be returning as Regan and Marcus, respectively. We'll also see more of Evelyn's new baby, who caused the family no end of trouble at the climax of the first movie.

Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy will also appear in the sequel sporting a scraggly beard, as well as Djimon Hounsou - who gave an Oscar-nominated performance in Blood Diamond.

Trailers for the film have teased flashbacks showing how society crumbled when monsters with super-sensitive hearing showed up and went on a killing spree. This also means we'll see more of Krasinski's Lee Abbott, who (SPOILER ALERT) met a sticky end in the previous film.

The official synopsis from Paramount reads: "Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) 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 creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path."
