Top Gun: Maverick release date delayed again amid COVID-19 surge

Top Gun 2 which Paramount had slotted as a holiday movie with a Dec. 23 date, is now scheduled for July 2, 2021.

Paramount Studios delayed “Top Gun: Maverick” to next year in a dramatic shift in film release dates amid the re-surging coronavirus pandemic, USA Today reports.

Top Gun 2 which Paramount had slotted as a holiday movie with a Dec. 23 date, is now scheduled for July 2, 2021.

In a statement, Paramount distribution executives Chris Aronson and Mark Viane reaffirmed the studio’s commitment “to the theatrical experience and our exhibition partners, and want to stress that we are confident that, when the time comes, audiences everywhere will once again enjoy the singular joy of seeing Paramount films on the big screen.”

The making of “Top Gun: Maverick” cost over $150 million, so Paramount is counting on massive ticket sales in order to turn a profit.

The internet was set ablaze on Dec. 16, 2019 when the latest trailer of Top Gun: Maverick debuted (the first one was released on Jul. 18, 2019).

The two-minute trailer boasts blockbuster scenes with Maverick taking to the skies in F/A-18 Super Hornet, F-14 Tomcat fighter aircraft and an ‘Area 51’-type jet.

Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
