The sequel to the 2018 silent blockbuster A Quiet Place had been set to hit theaters March 20 in North America, combined with a day-and-date release in numerous foreign markets.
Krasinski wrote and directed the film, which stars original castmembers Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe. Series newcomers include Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou.
