Paramount Pictures has set a new September 2020 release date for John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place: Part II.
The coronavirus pandemic has forced movie theaters across the world to shut down as governments try to slow the spread of the virus by ordering non-essential businesses to close. Consequently, studios continue to delay the release of their 2020 projects as it becomes less and less likely that theaters will be able to re-open by summer.
One of the first films to be impact by the coronavirus was John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place Part II, which was originally scheduled to be released in North American theaters on March 20, 2020. While Paramount Pictures pulled the John Krasinski film from its March slate roughly a week before it was scheduled to debut, the studio did not announce a new release date at the time.
Now, Paramount Pictures has set a new September 24, 2020, release date for A Quiet Place: Part II. In addition to the new date for the John Krasinski sequel, Paramount also pushed back Tom Cruise’s Top Gun sequel from June to December.
Do you think theaters will be able to open their doors again by then? Let us know in the comments section below.
