‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Among Movie Releases Delayed Due to COVID-19
We've wait 34 years for the return of Maverick, and it looks like we'll have to wait a little long. The long awaited "Top Gun" sequel staring Tom Cruise, which was originally set to hit theaters in North America on June 24th, will now wait until December 23rd.
Tom Cruise shared the news on his Twitter account this past week saying,"I know many of you have waited 34 years. Unfortunately, it will be a little longer. Top Gun: Maverick will fly this December. Stay safe, everyone."
Cruise's film isn't the only movie with a change of plans. John Krasinski's sequel "A Quiet Place Part II" has now been pushed from March 20th to September 4th. The new "The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run", was scheduled for a spring release of May 22nd, and is now slated to hit theaters July 31st.
If you're eagerly awaiting the latest James Bond flick, you'll have to hold your shaken not stirred martini until November when “No Time to Die” will hit theaters.
As of mid March, almost all cinemas in the county were closed because of coronavirus concerns. As of right now there is no indication as to when they will re-open. Summer is traditionally a big box office season, and the studios are hoping 2020 will be no different.
