A Quiet Place: Part II star John Krasinski has confirmed that the horror-drama's release date has been moved forward.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday, March 4, the writer-director – who is said to have a small role in the follow-up – shared an ominous-looking still from the movie.
He wrote alongside the caption: "They always say good things come to those who wait. Well... I think we've waited long enough.
"MEMORIAL DAY," the tweet concluded, revealing that the film will now reach cinemas on May 28 instead of September 17.
It now fills a slot that was recently left vacant by eagerly-anticipated blockbuster Fast & Furious 9, after it announced that it had been pushed back until June 25.
Released in 2016, A Quiet Place followed Lee (Krasinski), Evelyn (Emily Blunt) and their children as they attempt to survive in a world overrun with aggressive creatures that are super-sensitive to sound.
The sequel, which was originally supposed to come out on March 20, 2020, is set to continue on from the events of the first, as well as go back in time to reveal how the mysterious beasts took over.
Back in March last year, Krasinski teased that he already had ideas for a third instalment if the second continues to build on the original's success.
"It's interesting, I genuinely hadn't thought about a second one when I was doing the first one. However, I really had these questions while I was doing it," he explained. "I put the fires out in the distance in the first one, and I always thought to myself, 'Wouldn't it be cool if we got to explore where those fires lead to? Who's on the other end of those fires?'
"I never thought that there would be a sequel. So then when I actually came around to writing the sequel, I started with the fires.
"This time, I think when my brain started wondering [about questions like], 'What would this mean later on?' I started to write down notes in case I could prepare myself for a third one."
A Quiet Place: Part II is set to be released in US cinemas on May 28.
