Director John Krasinski has announced that the release date for A Quiet Place Part II has been put back from its original March 19th date.
The sequel to the original 2018 hit movie has joined No Time To Die and Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaways in changing the release because of the global pandemic.
Authorities have advised that because of the coronavirus it is best to avoid large crowds in an attempt to contain the virus.
As seen in last weeks box office across the world the public is choosing not to go the movie theatres, and for potential blockbusters this could have a large effect on their box office gross.
No new release date has been announced, but world governments seem to be suggesting things will be readdressed in early April.

The production of No Time To Die, and its release date, has had a troubled time, but few could have predicted the outbreak of the Coronavirus, or COVID-19 as it is called, to delay the film even further.
MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, announced today that after careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of NO TIME TO DIE will be postponed until November 2020. pic.twitter.com/a9h1RP5OKd— James Bond (@007) March 4, 2020
Today producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have announced that the film will be delayed until November with a UK release on 12th November 2020 and US release on 25th November 2020.
The film has had many delays with the first release date when the film was going to be directed by Danny Boyle being November 2019, then when he left the project it was moved to early 2020 and then yet again it was delayed until April 2020 to give the production more time.
Lets hope that the virus is under control ASAP and that there will be no more delays in the release of the movie.
Bond movies in recent years are more comfortable in the holiday period and a Christmas release may well benefit the film.
It has been announced that American singer/songwriter Billie Eilish will write and perform the title to No Time To Die.
This is an interesting choice as the artist is fairly unknown, especially in the UK, and she is the youngest ever performer of a Bond title track.
The artists who full name is Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell was born in 2001 making her 18 (at time of writing).
Her brother Finneas, who is also a recording artist, has co-written the song which so far has no title.
Fan reaction has so far been a little unfavourable with many people wondering why the Bond producers didn't pick someone more famous? Kasabian was a popular choice.
It would seem though that Adele's Skyfall was one of the more popular of recent songs and a return for her would have been favourable.
The #NoTimeToDie title song will be performed by @billieeilish. Billie has written the song with her brother @finneas and is the youngest artist in history to write and record a James Bond theme song. pic.twitter.com/Qd5cYIRlmg— James Bond (@007) January 14, 2020
James Bond 007 returns in the first full trailer for the next movie in the series No Time To Die and its full of action with little in the way of story.
This is reportedly the last film that Bond actor Daniel Craig will apear and the first trailer is full of the actor in action.
The movie is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, his first time in the chair behind a Bond movie, and judging by the trailer he sure has the look and feel of a 007 movie tied down.
The is plenty of action in the trailer, but there are also story hints with suggestions of a new female 00 (they dont mention is she is 7 or not) and a struggle of love for Bond with girlfriend Dr. Madeleine Swann who, surprise, has a dark secret.
We also get to see Christoph Waltz return as Blofeld and the smallest glimpse of Rami Maleck as the villain of the film.
Also watch the trailer until the very end, the final split second shot is an absolute gem!
After a troubled shoot and reports of injuries and fallouts it looks like it could all be coming together got the 3rd April release, so check out the trailer and start the wait.

James Bond actor Daniel Craig has confirmed that he will not return as 007 for the next movie in the long running series.
No Time To Die is set for release next April with Craig as the main character but in a recent interview with German site Express he seems to have enough of playing the role and this will be his last.
The film has reportedly has a troubled production with injuries happening to Craig and other people involved in the making, and there has apparently been friction between Craig and director Cary Joji Fukunaga.
In the same interview the actor also dismissed any notion of returning as a director for the franchise.
Daniel Craig has appeared as James Bond since 2006 in Casino Royale and has been the character in Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre.
