The highly-anticipated sequel to Tom Cruise's classic movie is no longer scheduled to hit theaters nationwide in summer as the world is focusing on the covid-19 crisis.
Tom Cruise's much-anticipated "Top Gun" sequel has become the latest movie victim of the coronavirus crisis.
Bosses at Paramount have announced "Top Gun: Maverick" will no longer hit cinema screens this summer 2020 - as scheduled. Instead they're turning the film into a Christmas treat for fans.
The movie will now hit theatres on December 23, 2020.
It joins a list of rescheduled blockbuster releases, including "No Time to Die", "Black Widow", "Wonder Woman 1984", "Mulan", and "A Quiet Place II", which will now open on September 4, 2020.
A follow up to the 1986 hit, "Top Gun: Maverick" also stars Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris, Glen Powell, Jon Hamm, and Val Kilmer.
