Later in the year, in July 2020, Paramount announced the film’s release date would be moved to April 23, 2021, given most cinemas in the USA and the UK had been closed for months at this time.
Earlier this year, Paramount postponed the film again to September 17, 2021, which came alongside other major movies like No Time to Die, Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Death on the Nile.
However, in March 2021, the film’s director, John Krasinski, announced the film would come out at the same time as the Memorial Day Holiday in the USA, which is May 28, 2021.
This again set in motion more release date moves, in that the upcoming Fast and Furious movie, F9, was moved to June in order to give space to A Quiet Place Part II, as well as the movie Infinite.
As well as that, due to the film going to streaming after 45 days rather than the usual 90 days of cinema, this meant the film’s producers and stars, John, Emily Blunt and Michael Bay, reportedly asked for compensation from Paramount for the decrease in earnings.
