Emily Blunt, right, tries to keep her children (Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds) safe in "A Quiet Place Part II."

Local movie fans will have to be patient a little longer.

"A Quiet Place Part II," which was filmed in its entirety in the Buffalo region in 2019, has had its opening date pushed ahead for the third time, now to Sept. 17.

Originally scheduled for a large theatrical release on March 20, 2020, the film's opening was delayed to Sept. 4, 2020, and then again to April 23, 2021, before this latest news.

These continued postponements are part of an industry-wide juggling act studios have been playing since the Covid-19 pandemic shut down many movie theaters nationwide and caused moviegoers where theaters were open to stay home in high numbers.

"A Quiet Place Part II" is the sequel to the original 2018 surprise blockbuster – it made more than $340 million on a $17 million budget – about a couple (John Krasinski and Emily Blunt) trying to protect their children from aliens who hunt by sound.

Krasinski directs the sequel that continues the story from where the original left off, also showing in flashback how the invasion started. Blunt, Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds return. New to the sequel are Cillian Murphy (“The Dark Knight”) and Oscar-nominated actor Djimon Hounsou (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Captain Marvel”).

Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.
