‘A Quiet Place 2’ Pounces on Memorial Day Weekend
Good news for fans of sci-fi thrillers: A Quiet Place 2 is now less than three months away!
The end of May was once the pasture of big releases such as ‘F9’ and ‘No Time to Die’ before Universal and MGM aimed to secure more competitive release dates; the latest chapter in the Fast Saga is now drifting on June 25, and Daniel Craig’s last ride as James Bond is set for October 8, a year and half later than its original release date before all hell broke loose.
A Quiet Place 2 also sufered a myriad of delays, with the latest date being September 17. Yesterday, writer-director-actor-producer-everything John Krasinski took to Twitter to announce the release was moving up more than three months:
They always say good things come to those who wait. Well… I think we’ve waited long enough.

Memorial Day has normally been a highly coveted date for huge releases. Still, a tempting gap appeared once F9 abandoned May 28. While the COVID-19 situation won’t be exactly optimal by the end of May and the start of June, a medium-sized release such as this one could easily bring in the money needed to cover its costs. It’s also important to remember that Paramount Plus’ plans include a 45-day theatrical release window for A Quiet Place 2, Top Gun: Maverick, and Mission: Impossible 7, so folks who are staying at home this summer could be able to watch the film as soon as the second week of July.
Beyond A Quiet Place: Part II (and the likely third chapter), Mud and Midnight Special filmmaker Jeff Nichols has been tapped to write and direct a spinoff from an idea hatched by John Krasinski (he seems to be really good at pitches).

He graduated in English Studies from the University of Malaga, in Spain. As he continues to write about what he enjoys (and doesn’t), he’s studying for a master’s degree and working on becoming a teacher.
