It seems we will have to wait another 4 months to catch Top Gun: Maverick, the highly anticipated sequel to Tom Cruise’s 1986 classic, as Paramount Pictures has shifted the movie’s release date yet again, and hopefully for the last time, from 1 July till 19 November 2021.
This announcement was made officially via Top Gun’s official Facebook page, via a cover picture update:
Top Gun: Maverick is directed by Joseph Kosinski and stars Tom Cruise alongside Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, and Lewis Pullman, with Ed Harris. It follows Cruise’s Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, now a flight aviator who ends up encountering Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw, the son of his deceased best friend and partner Nick “Goose” Bradshaw.
Apart from Top Gun: Maverick, Paramount Studios also did more shifting of a slew of movies. Mission: Impossible 7 has shifted from 19 November 2021 to 27 May 2022, Mission: Impossible 8 is now pushed to 7 July 2023, from its previous 4 November 2022. Dungeons & Dragons shifted 10 months back to 3 March 2023, while the next Star Trek film has been set for 9 June 2023. On the bright side though, it seems the G.I. Joe spinoff Snake Eyes has been brought forward from 22 October 2021 to 23 July 2021.
