Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe star in “A Quiet Place Part II”.
“A Quiet Place Part II” is the latest Hollywood movie to advance to box office release worldwide as the coronavirus pandemic rages on in the US. This is the third time the movie has been postponed due to the outbreak.
Paramount’s post-apocalyptic thriller will now premiere on September 17th. The film should last in theaters on April 23.
The film is the highly anticipated sequel to John Krasinski’s directorial debut, “A Quiet Place,” which introduced moviegoers to a world where deadly but blind creatures hunt based on sound only. The film starred actress Emily Blunt alongside teenage deaf actress Millicent Simmonds and a young English actor named Noah Jupe. All three are returning for the sequel.
The first A Quiet Place, on a budget of just $ 17 million, grossed more than $ 340 million at the global box office as moviegoers flocked to theaters to watch the exciting film on the big screen and in large groups experience.
This is a likely reason why Paramount, which has been actively selling a number of theatrical titles to streaming services over the past year, decided to postpone the release of the sequel.
In the past, Studio Aaron Sorkins sold “The Trial of the Chicago 7” to Netflix and “Coming 2 America” and “Without Remorse” to Amazon.
The commercial success of “A Quiet Place” and Krasinski’s desire to have the film play on the big screen could keep the film out of the streaming market for the time being.
This is what the 2021 calendar looks like after “A Quiet Place II” has been postponed.
