A Quiet Place Part II movie posterParamount Pictures has just released a statement this morning saying that their highly anticipated sequel A Quiet Place Part II has been postponed due to the coronavirus.

The statement read: “After much consideration, and in light of the ongoing and developing situation concerning coronavirus and restrictions on global travel and public gatherings, Paramount Pictures will be moving the worldwide release of A Quiet Place Part II. We believe in and support the theatrical experience, and we look forward to bringing this film to audiences this year once we have a better understanding of the impact of this pandemic on the global theatrical marketplace.”

A Quiet Place Part II, directed and written by John Krasinski and starring Emily Blunt, was set to hit theaters next Friday — March 20, 2020. A new release date has not yet been announced.

Consequently, our contest for the advance screening of A Quiet Place Part II has been paused and will restart when the new date has been set by the studio. All existing contest entries will remain as part of the new contest.
