Directed by Emily Blunt’s husband, John Krasinski, 'A Quiet Place' starred the married couple in leading roles. The movie revolved around the post-apocalyptic world, where a family is forced to live in complete silence as they hide from monsters possessing ultra-sensitive hearing.
The movie is not the only event hit recently. Earlier, Coachella Music Festival was postponed due to the spread of COVID-19. Similarly, TV networks began cutting out live audiences while Silicon Valley went into complete lockdown as well.
Meanwhile, Krasinski took to Twitter to reveal the delay of the film. He wrote,
As insanely excited as we are for all of you to see this movie…I’m gonna wait to release the film til we CAN all see it together!, So here’s to our group movie date! See you soon!
