The release date of A Quiet Place has been post-poned due to the coronavirus pandemic emergency.
John Krasinski, the director of A Quiet Place, one of the most interesting film in 2018 which was based around a mix of sound and noise and bathed in the suspense of monsters that have an acute sense of hearing, just recently announced that the world of A Quiet Place was set to come back in theatres with the sequel of the film. Here’s the trailer for the first film:
On the 1st of January 2020, when the world still seemed the same as it was in 2019, the trailer for the sequel was released. A huge media attention for a film that had acquired a good number of fans. With the presence of Cillian Murphy, a new plot seemed to unfold which would enrich the film and raise the expectations even higher. With the trailer, the release date of the film was announced: 20th Marco 2020. Here’s the trailer for the sequel:
On the 12th of Marco 2020, just a bit more than a week from the release, due to the global pandemic emergency for the coronavirus, the producers and the director of the film found themselves forced in taking the decision of delaying the theatrical release of the film. Here’s the announcement post:
Of course, just like anything else that is currently on social media, even this announcement was criticised – underlining the commercial decision implying the fact that the theatrical run of the film would’ve not made enough money. We honestly don’t understand what the problem would be in this case? One of the goals of the commercial film industry – in this case the apex of this industry based in California – is also to earn money and put the film in a position to do so or at least try to earn back the budget that was put down for the production. Nevertheless and maybe more importantly, given the heavy situation we’re all in and the sense of responsibility we’re all asked to employ, does this decision sound so absurd? What do you make of it? How do you think the film will be critically received? Did you like the first film? Let us know what you think!
