Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupp star in “Quiet Place, Part II”.
“Quiet Place, Part II” is the latest Hollywood film to push for a global box office as the coronavirus pandemic rages in the United States. This is the third time the film has been postponed due to the explosion.
The film is the long-awaited sequel to John Krasinski’s directorial debut “Quiet Place,” which introduced viewers to a world where deadly but blind creatures hunt solely on sound. The film stars actress Emily Blunt, starring deaf teen actress Millicent Simmonds and a young English actor named Noah Jupp. All three return for the sequel.
The first Quiet Place, which had a budget of just $ 17 million, went on to earn more than $ 340 million at the global box office as moviegoers flocked to theaters to experience the thriller on the big screen and in large groups.
This is one of the probable reasons why Paramount, which has been actively selling a number of theatrical titles on streaming services in the last year, decided to postpone the release of the sequel.
In the past, the studio has sold Aaron Sorkin’s “Chicago 7 Test” to Netflix and “Coming 2 America” and “No Remorse” to Amazon.
The commercial success of “Quiet Place” and Krasinski’s desire to play on the big screen for now may divert the film from the streaming market.
This is what the 2021 calendar looks like now that Quiet Place II has been postponed.
