‘A Quiet Place 2’ & ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ Get Release Date Changes | Film News
Paramount Pictures have made some changes to their release schedule, and they may have something to do with each other. First, John Krasinski‘s sequel to A Quiet Place has been moved up two months. Originally set to hit cinemas in May 2020, it will now arrive on March 20, 2020. All the major players from the first film are returning, and will be joined by Cillian Murphy.
At the same time, Paramount have unsurprisingly pushed back Sonic The Hedgehog. The trailer recently gained a lot of heat for Sonic’s appearance, and director Jeff Fowler vowed to take fan feedback on board and alter the look. Thus, the film has been delayed slightly. It was originally set to arrive in November of this year, but will now hit screens to Valentine’s Day 2020.
That means Sonic The Hedgehog will now compete against Universal’s romcom The Photograph and Fox’s untitled Kingsman threequel in its new date.
With both major films getting moved, Paramount have also shifted another project into Sonic‘s old date. The family film Playing With Fire, which revolves around firefighters taking on a group of siblings after rescuing them in a fire, will now take the November 8 spot Sonic vacated. The film stars John Cena, Brianna Hildebrand, Judy Greer, Keegan-Michael Key, and John Leguizamo.
A Quiet Place 2 will likely have no problem with its new date. The first film made $340 million globally and the sequel has a solid chance of topping that. But we’ll have to wait and see whether Sonic The Hedgehog will work as a Valentine’s Day movie.
