The July 16 release date has been taken by Camila Cabello's "Cinderella". Sound familiar? Well, then it's the same films, too, a sense of deja vu is hard to ignore.

Paramount Pictures has delayed John Krasinski's "A Quiet Place II" for the third time.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Emily Blunt-starrer film will now open in the U.S. on September 17.

The new date is the fourth for the film's opening. Will the strategy pay off? This isn't the first time the film has been delayed as it was originally scheduled to release on March 18th 2020 before being pushed back to September 2020 due to the ongoing global health crisis until it was later pencilled in for the aforementioned April 2021 release.

With the September 2021 release date, A Quiet Place Part II will be facing the star-studded Murder on the Orient Express sequel Death on the Nile, the animated sequel The Boss Baby: Family Business, and the action comedy The Man From Toronto with Woody Harrelson and Kevin Hart. It saw director John Krasinski emerge as a surprising new voice in the horror genre. Numerous recent release date changes have studios shifting movies to the fall, when the COVID-19 vaccine is expected to have returned us to some sense of safety and normalcy.

With the surge in COVID-19 infections, moviegoing has been slow to return in the United States. That means studios still don't feel confident in releasing their buzziest movies on the big screen. Now in North America, around 65% of movie theaters remain closed, and cinemas that have stayed open have struggled to sell tickets.
