It’s been a long road for Paramount’s A Quiet Place Part 2, the much-anticipated sequel to 2018’s surprise sci-fi/horror hit A Quiet Place. Originally slated to hit theaters last March, the sequel even had an official premiere, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced shutdowns all over the country mere days before the planned theatrical release. Paramount and director John Krasinski opted to shelve the movie until theaters reopened rather than releasing it on demand.
A Quiet Place Part 2 is finally here, and it was well worth the wait. It’s less of a sequel and more of a continuation of the original story. It retains all the aspects that worked about its predecessor while exploring new themes and character development.
