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.
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.
