Is A Quiet Place on Disney plus?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

As a film enthusiast, I was really excited to hear that Paramount’s highly anticipated movie, A Quiet Place 2, would be available on Paramount Plus. However, I was a bit disappointed to learn that it wouldn’t follow the same release strategy as Disney movies like Raya and the Last Dragon and Cruella on Disney Plus, or how HBO Max received Godzilla vs Kong on the same day as its theatrical release.

Unlike those films, A Quiet Place 2 will not be released simultaneously on the streaming platform and in theaters. Instead, it will have a traditional theatrical release first, and then become available on Paramount Plus at a later date. While it’s great that fans will eventually have the opportunity to stream the movie from the comfort of their own homes, it’s not quite the immediate access that some other studios have provided.

I believe this decision might stem from Paramount’s desire to maximize box office revenue for A Quiet Place 2. By giving the film an exclusive theatrical run before making it available on their streaming platform, they can potentially attract more viewers to theaters and generate higher ticket sales. This strategy has been employed by several studios recently, as they navigate the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the changing landscape of film distribution.

While I understand the reasoning behind this approach, I can’t help but feel a tinge of disappointment. As someone who appreciates the convenience of streaming services, being able to watch a highly anticipated film like A Quiet Place 2 from the comfort of my own home would have been a treat. However, I also recognize the importance of supporting the film industry and the theater experience, so I will eagerly await the film’s release and make plans to see it on the big screen.

A Quiet Place 2 will not be available on Paramount Plus simultaneously with its theatrical release. Instead, it will have a traditional theatrical run and then become available on the streaming platform at a later date. While this may not align with the release strategies of some other studios, it allows Paramount to prioritize box office revenue and the theater experience. As a film enthusiast, I’m disappointed but also understand the reasoning behind this decision.
