John Krasinski Announces New Release Date for A QUIET PLACE PART II: ‘I Think We’ve Waited Long Enough’

By Movieguide® Staff

Actor John Krasinski made an exciting announcement that A QUIET PLACE PART II will release on Memorial Day 2021. 

“I think we’ve waited long enough,” John Krasinski announced on Twitter. 

Paramount initially delayed the theatrical release of the A QUIET PLACE sequel, initially set to debut in 2020, to Sept. 17, 2021, but, to the excitement of fans, pushed up the premiere date to May 31. 

John Krasinski wrote and directed both A QUIET PLACE movies where he stars alongside his on-screen and real-life wife, Emily Blunt. 

“They say good things come to those who wait. Well… I think we’ve waited long enough. A QUIET PLACE PART II Memorial Day,” the actor wrote.

Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe, who play the couple’s children in the first installment, are set to return to the sequel. New cast members include veteran actor Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou.

A portion of Movieguide®’s review of A QUIET PLACE reads

A QUIET PLACE takes psychological thrillers to a new level with a heartfelt story of a family trying to survive vicious creatures that hunt by sound. The opening sets the stage. The Abbott family is scavenging for supplies in a post-apocalyptic town. The parents speak sign language to their children, urging them to be quiet. The scene quickly reveals what happens if you’re too loud. It makes every single sound terrifying for the rest of the movie. The Abbotts try to live a normal life without sound, but that’s easier said than done.

A QUIET PLACE keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. John Krasinski provides great direction, from his brilliant use of style to the cast’s winning performances. The simple story seamlessly transitions between thrills and emotional moments. Everything’s grounded in the positive relationships among the Abbott family. Themes of love and protection provide a refreshing, healthy depiction of family bonds. The suspense isn’t for the faint of heart. Even so, A QUIET PLACE is a strong allegory for parenting and “training a child in the way they should go.”
