“A Quiet Place 2” to Premiere Earlier

John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe, and Millicent Simmonds in "A Quiet Place"

Multiple outlets report that A Quiet Place sequel has been moved ahead by two months by Paramount Pictures.

The John Krasinski-helmed horror sequel will now premiere on March 20, 2020, rather than May 15, 2020. 

The still-untitled feature will see Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe reprising their roles. They will be joined by Cillian Murphy. The story followed an isolated family of four that must live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound. The original made its world premiere at SXSW last year. It grossed $188 million domestically and $340.9 million worldwide.

According to Variety, the new release date has to do with Paramount’s decision to delay the release of Sonic the Hedgehog moved from November 2019 to February 14, 2020, and then filling the vacated spot with Andy Fickman’s Playing With Fire.
