With its taut narrative and controlled acting, John Krasinski’s 2018 horror movie “A Quiet Place” startled critics and audiences. The movie depicts the Abbott family, led by Krasinski and Emily Blunt, in the future when creatures sensitive to sound have exterminated much of civilization. They must eke out their existence in a devastated landscape while making as little noise as possible.
The outcome was a great film office blockbuster, and now “A Quiet Place, Part 2” is poised to enter theatres after being delayed due to the COVID-19 epidemic. The remaining Abbotts are followed in the sequel as they search for more survivors, including family friend Emmett (Cillian Murphy). They continue to combat the alien monsters together in the hopes of surviving.
Many are asking if “A Quiet Place, Part 2” would premiere on HBO Max within its apparent theatrical window due to Warner Bros.’ current policy of concurrently releasing films in theatres and on the HBO Max streaming service. It’s a good question, so here’s where you can find “A Quiet Place, Part 2” when it comes out.
The second installment of A Quiet Place will not be shown on HBO Max.
“A Quiet Place, Part 2” will not be available to HBO Max members – at least not at first. Only Warner Bros. films will be released simultaneously in cinemas and on HBO Max, while Paramount Pictures will distribute both “Quiet Place” features. At this moment, no other studio has embraced Warner Bros. unconventional policy, and the firm itself plans to stop releasing simultaneous films in 2022 (via CNET).
Regardless, “Part 2” will be accessible to stream on Paramount+ beginning July 12 — around 45 days after its theatrical premiere (via CNET). That’s a lot quicker than the gap between theatrical release and streaming availability before the epidemic. If fans are still concerned about attending a packed cinema, they can always wait six weeks to watch the movie at home.
“A Quiet Place, Part 2” will only be available in cinemas in the United States commencing May 28 through July 12. In the meanwhile, the original film is available for free with a Hulu membership on Hulu.
