A Quiet Place Part II and Top Gun: Maverick Get New Release Dates

Will cinemas be up and running again in the later half of the year?

The Hollywood Reporter brings us the news that A Quiet Place Part II now has a new release date. Initially, the movie was set to release March 20 but was postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus that was sweeping the country. Paramount has now settled on a new release date for A Quiet Place Part II, with a release date of September 4, 2020 – a labour day opening weekend. This does feel like a surge of optimism in the air, with Paramount banking on the pandemic being stabilized by then.

Paramount also moved the release date of Top Gun: Maverick, from a June 24th release date to December 23rd, tapping on the Christmas season as opposed to the summer blockbuster it was supposed to be. Of course these dates aren’t set in stone. If the coronavirus situation does not improve, cinemas could be closed for far longer, and all these releases might just have to be pushed to 2021.

Given the profile of the movies, and how they are much-awaited sequels, it is doubtful that they will get a VOD (Video on Demand) release – these are movies we want to see in the cinema and not at home. Other calendar changes for Paramount include The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run, previously scheduled for May 22, which will now hit theaters on July 31.
