After more than a year of release date shuffling, A Quiet Place Part II has almost made its way to theaters, so Paramount Pictures is giving fans one last look at the sequel before it arrives. The movie’s final trailer was released on Thursday, along with a second featurette meant to steer people toward the movie’s theatrical release. While both teases are full of monsters and post-apocalyptic action, the main video is also full of famous people asking you to come back to the movies. Director (and costar of the first movie) John Krasinski comes back in front of camera to personally invite audiences to scream alongside fellow horror fans.
“It was always designed for a theatrical experience,” Krasinski promises. “It’s much bigger. It’s a much scarier movie.”
“You want to watch it in the dark,” star Emily Blunt adds, “jump and leap and gasp together.”
A Quiet Place Part II was originally scheduled to be released in 2020, but suffered a delay early on in the coronavirus pandemic. Clearly thinking ahead, Paramount opted to delay the movie a full year until 2021. At one point, the movie was slated to arrive in theaters in September, but after a few hopeful performances at the box office, the studio decided to move the horror film up to its current May 28 release date.
A Quiet Place Part II will be released in theaters, but will not feature a day-and-date release on VOD and streaming. Instead, it will fall into Paramount’s new windowing agreement with theaters, which will see the movie remain a theatrical exclusive until some time in July — 45 days after its theatrical release.
