The upcoming prequel for the horror thriller movie A Quiet Place gets a new release date, pushed back six months from the original schedule.
A Quiet Place: Day One was originally slated for a March 2023 schedule, and later on announced that it will be released by September. The sequel, A Quiet Place Part II follows the journey of Evelyn Abbott and her children as they navigate through the ghost town infested with Death Angels, the beastly creatures with a penchant for sounds.
The sequel showed the origins of the Death Angels and their first arrival on Earth. John Krasinski directed the film and starred as well in the first movie before his character was killed off. A Quiet Place Part II received critical acclaim and was equally successful as the first movie.
Prequel For A Quiet Place Gets New Release Date
In a post from Variety, the movie’s prequel will be delayed for six months after its second release date announcement. There were no explanations given, and plot details are still unknown. The title, however, provides a clue as to what the spinoff will be. Krasinski will not return to the director’s seat; Michael Sarnoski will now spearhead the production.
There is so much expectation for the prequel movie as both original and sequel films have set the bar high, and having Sarnoski take the wheel will be an exciting adventure. Having a new director also means there will be changes as he puts his own spin to the film while keeping the charm that made fans love the first two movies.
The prequel holds many possibilities as the second film only showed flashbacks of the first day the Death Angels fell from the sky. Hopefully, this time, it will be revealed where exactly these sound-obsessed creatures came from and why they invaded Earth. A Quiet Place: Day One is set to arrive in theaters on March 8, 2024.
