Top Gun: Maverick release date postponed

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise’s much-anticipated Top Gun sequel has become the latest movie victim of the coronavirus crisis.

Bosses at Paramount have announced Top Gun: Maverick will no longer hit cinema screens this summer (2020) – as scheduled. Instead, they’re turning the film into a Christmas treat for fans.

The movie will now hit theatres on December 23, 2020.

It joins a list of rescheduled blockbuster releases, including No Time to Die, Black Widow, Wonder Woman 1984, Mulan, and A Quiet Place II, which will now open on September 4, 2020.

A follow up to the 1986 hit, Top Gun: Maverick also stars Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris, Glen Powell, Jon Hamm and Val Kilmer.
