Let me get straight to the point. Die-hard fans will have to hold their horses even longer for the next instalment of the Top Gun film series. The sequel to the 1986 classic Top Gun has been pushed further due to the coronavirus delaying production.
Paramount has announced that it will once again be delaying the release of “Top Gun: Maverick” along with “ A Quiet Place Part 2” in an attempt to make sure that their audiences remain safe and enjoy the release in theatres instead of on Video On Demand (VOD) at home.
WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE NEW RELEASE DATE?
Variety has mentioned that “Top Gun: Maverick” was originally scheduled for release on Dec 23rd, 2020 and pushed back for release on July 2nd, 2021. Then later in April, Paramount revealed that the movie will be pushed further, from a June 24 release to late December.
Several studios have rescheduled their release date due to the pandemic, and Paramount studios was quite concerned about its plans for release going down the drain.
“We truly believe that there is no movie-viewing experience like the one enjoyed in theatres,” said Paramount’s president of domestic distribution Chris Aronson, and president of international theatrical distribution Mark Viane.
“We are committed 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.”
