First it was James Bond. Then it was Peter Rabbit. And now, A Quiet Place Part II has had not to not-so-quietly push back its release date due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation. John Krasinski’s sequel to his 2018 hit was due to arrive in a matter of days, but the director has since posted a statement on Instagram announcing the delay, and explaining the reason behind it.

“To all out A Quiet Place fans,” he writes. “One of the things I’m most proud of is that people have said that our movie is one 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 right time to do that. As insanely excited as we are for all of you to see this 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! #AquietPlacePart2…Take2”

A new date hasn’t yet been announced. A Quiet Place Part II was set for a UK release next Thursday, 19 March – at the time of writing Paramount UK hasn’t specified the status of the UK release, but according to a Variety report it has been “pulled from schedules for the time being”. Empire has contacted Paramount UK for more information.

Elsewhere, the release of Peter Rabbit 2 was delayed until August, with new 007 movie No Time To Die now set to arrive in November instead of April. It remains to be seen if other upcoming high-profile films – including Disney’s Mulan – will follow suit, or continue with a major cinema release in the coming weeks.
