After Paramount Pictures announced the delayed release of the film, Krasinski also took to Instagram to release his own statement for fans and followers. "One of the things I’m most proud of is that people have said our movie is one you have to see all together. Well due to the ever-changing circumstances of what’s going on in the world around us, now is clearly not the right time to do that," Krasinski wrote, attempting to provide as much insight as possible.

While fans will now have to wait even longer for the highly anticipated sequel, the film is presumed to be a success. Being that the first film grossed $340 million globally, expectations remain quite high for the second.
