A quiet place 2 shall be delayed once more and won’t arrive till autumn 2021
John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place 2 has been delayed again. The post-apocalyptic thriller has been delayed three times since it was originally announced. The much-anticipated sequel was due to open in theaters last March, but Paramount pulled the plug at the last minute as the public health crisis was in its infancy. It was later postponed to April 23, 2021, but that won’t happen as of this week. The studio now has A quiet place 2 opens in cinemas on September 17th.
With cases on the rise in North America, large studios are dragging their biggest films and delaying them. We are now seeing that most of the most anticipated films of 2020 will be postponed further into 2021 as studios are currently unsure about releasing films in theaters. Warner Bros. is trying to adapt to its hybrid release model, where films are shown in theaters and on HBO Max at the same time. While the announcement caused a backlash when it was announced, it could prove successful as more studios take their big-name films out of theaters.
In terms of streaming, Paramount has also experimented with the model. Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7, Eddie Murphy’s Coming 2 America, and Without Remorse all went to Netflix and Amazon. However, the studio relies on A Quiet Place 2 and its ability to draw viewers into the cinemas for an experience. The first installment was a surprise hit for Paramount after earning well over $ 300 million worldwide with an initial budget of $ 17 million. John Krasinski hesitated at first with a sequel, but was later won over by the studio and his wife Emily Blunt, who also starred in A Quiet Place 2 and the first film.
A Quiet Place shocked the audience with its clever story and intense sound design, the biggest factor being the silence. People were beaten up on social media for eating popcorn during the movie because the surroundings were so quiet. So Paramount wants to restore that kind of craze for A Quiet Place 2, which all depends on cinemas being able to safely open their doors.
Disney just announced that they are pushing back many of their Q1 films, including The King’s Man and The Bob’s Burgers. Many assume it is only a matter of time before they delay their Marvel Studios projects while other major studios follow suit. It is currently unclear when cinemas can safely open their doors again. If they do, however, there will be an avalanche of new films. Variety was one of the first to report on the move from A Quiet Place 2 in September.
