It’s official everyone. We will not have any sort of a summer box office season as Paramount announced today that Pete Mitchell will have to wait to fly into the danger zone as Top Gun: Maverick will no longer hit theaters in June but now will see a Christmas release on December 23rd.
The news comes via Deadline which also stated that A Quiet Place 2 will hit on Labor Day weekend on September 4th.
All of this comes with the hope that cinemas will open up again at some point as the world deals with the nasty Coronavirus. Unfortunately, this was the last film I was anxiously awaiting so my hopes have now been dashed.
Top Gun: Maverick is set in a world of drone technology and fifth-generation fighters along with exploring the end of the era of dogfighting. Maverick (once again played by Tom Cruise) is now a flight instructor, who takes Bradley Bradshaw (played by Miles Teller), the son of Maverick’s late partner Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, under his wing. The film also stars Jon Hamm, Val Kilmer, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell and Ed Harris.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more hopefully some good news in the future until then, there’s always streaming.
