Paramount Pictures has released new date for Top Gun: Maverick after postponing it due to the coronavirus outbreak.
According to reports, the Tom Cruise starrer would now be released on December 23 due to coronavirus pandemic.
Paramount has also set a September 4, 2020 release for A Quiet Place Part II.
In July last year, Tom Cruise made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con to show the first trailer for the long-awaited sequel to his military action movie.
Top Gun: Maverick sees the return of Cruise’s cocky fighter pilot more than 30 years after the original movie launched his career as a global action star.
The first trailer showed Cruise wearing Pete “Maverick” Mitchell’s famous leather jacket, racing on a motorcycle and flying a fighter jet through a narrow snow-filled canyon.
The sequel picks up decades after the 1986 box-office hit and features actor Miles Teller as the son of Anthony Edwards’ pilot Goose, who is killed during a training exercise in the first movie.
“Top Gun: Maverick” also stars Jon Hamm, Ed Harris and Val Kilmer, who reprises his rule as Maverick’s rival Iceman.
