It looks as though the long wait for Top Gun: Maverick has been cut slightly shorter, much to the delight of fans. Paramount Pictures has announced that the release date for the sequel starring Tom Cruise has flown forward to 24 June 2020 (via Variety).
This makes it two days earlier than its initial release date of 26 June 2020. It’s not that big of a leap, and in fact could serve to earn the film more hits at the box office.
Tom Cruise, also on Mission: Impossible 7 duty, will reprise his role as Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell. Mitchell will be the instructor of a batch of new recruits at the Navy flight school, which includes the likes of Miles Teller (Fantastic Four, Whiplash), who will play as Goose’s son.
Also returning in the sequel will be Val Kilmer as Tom “Iceman” Kazansky, and rounding up the cast list will be Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, Charles Parnell, Jay Ellis, Lewis Pullman, Bashir Salahuddin, Monica Barbaro, and Danny Ramirez.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
