Today, the sh*t has officially hit the fan. Following our own Taoiseach addressing the nation earlier today, with news that all school and colleges, as well as large indoor and outdoor events would be cancelled, another movie has succummed to the Coronavirus.
'A Quiet Place 2' has been delayed until later this year, it has been confirmed by director John Krasinski. The movie was due to be released on March 19th. A new release date hasn't been announced by Paramount yet.
Krasinski took to his social media channels to reveal the news. He said in a post on his Instagram and Twitter accounts: "To all our 'A Quiet Place' fans, one of the things I’m most proud of is that people have said our movie is one you have to see all together.
"Well due to the ever-changing circumstances of what’s going on in the world around us, now is clearly not the right time to do that. As insanely excited as we are for all of you to see this movie .. I’m gonna wait to release the film till we CAN all see it together! So here’s to our group movie date! See you soon!"

It looks like the right call to make, as a packed theatre is probably the best way to experience the upcoming thriller. And in the interest of public safety, it is a number one priority.
'A Quiet Place 2' being delayed means that this is now the third movie to fall victim to COVID-19. 'No Time To Die' and 'Peter Rabbit 2' have also both been pushed back until later this year.
