Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are apparently looking for financial compensation from Paramount Pictures after the studio chose to abbreviate the theatrical release window for their forthcoming frightfulness spin-off “A Quiet Place Part II.”
Another report from Bloomberg states that the two actors (Krasinki also composed and coordinated the film) have “a contract that compensates them based on the’s film industry performance.” That performance has now been limited by Paramount’s choice to move “A Quiet Place Part II” to streaming via Paramount+ 45 days after the film’s May 28 theatrical opening. A few exhibitors will in any case be operating at restricted capacity when the film has its theatrical release.
“The stars are so stressed that many potential theater fans may wait for the film to be available for home review, decreasing the movie’s receipts, said the individual, who asked not to be recognized talking about a private matter. The original ‘A Quiet Place’ gathered $341 million in ticket sales worldwide in 2018… Representatives for the couple, along with different makers who have a stake in the’s film industry performance, including filmmaker Michael Bay, have asked Paramount for compensation, according to the individual, and the conversations are continuous. However, the studio has rebuked them hitherto.”
“A Quiet Place Part II” was originally set for a theatrical release on March 20, 2020.
The pandemic caused Paramount to delay the film to September 4, 2020, and then to April 23, 2021. A third delay pushed the film to September 17, 2021, however then Paramount Pictures made the choice to knock up the release to its present May 28 date.
