One of the many films that experienced many delays because of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak was “A Quiet Place Part II.” However, Paramount Pictures released the movie in theatres back in May, when moviegoers were still being courted in the wake of the widespread distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. Although the film initially caused pandemic box office numbers to fluctuate, audiences today are more more inclined to visit a theatre than they were in the spring. Because of this, the studio is bringing “A Quiet Place Part II” back into theatres, where it is expected to make more money over the Halloween weekend.

“A Quiet Place Part II” exploded at the box office with a roughly $58 million opening when it first came out in theatres back in May. Many people celebrated the return of movies as a result, although new movies that came out during the summer and into the fall weren’t necessarily noteworthy. Even still, more and more people are returning to the movies, and “Halloween Kills'” $50 million debut proves that audiences are eager for some jump scares.
Will “A Quiet Place Part II” come out too late to pique new interest, though? Yes, vaccination rates have increased, and business at the movies has been getting better. But in July, at the same time the film was released on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD, “A Quiet Place Part II” was also made streamable on Paramount+. Will people pay to watch the movie in cinemas when it is so easily accessible in other formats? There might be something special about watching this specific film in a (hopefully) quiet theatre. The first movie was so much fun to see because of this. During the sci-fi horror movie, even the noisiest moviegoers tended to become more silent.
The franchise will continue to thrive no matter how much money this Halloween re-release brings in at the box office. A spin-off from director Jeff Nichols (“Midnight Special”) is now in production and is planned for release in the spring of 2023. That will allow John Krasinski enough downtime so that he can take his time making “A Quiet Place Part III,” which we presume is on the schedule even if it hasn’t been formally revealed.
Beginning on October 29, “A Quiet Place Part II” will return to theatres, where it will remain through the following week. Given that we don’t know how long it will last, it could be wise to purchase a ticket as soon as possible. For showtimes and tickets, click here.
We’ll leave you with the “A Quiet Place Part II” trailer and plot summary for the time being, courtesy of Paramount Pictures:
Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.
