‘Top Gun’ sequel delayed in summer movie setback for theaters

The move now deprives theaters of what was expected to be one of the biggest releases of the summer blockbuster season.

The sequel to the 1986 hit Top Gun will now debut in theaters on Nov. 19, the day Paramount had planned to release Cruise’s seventh Mission: Impossible movie. That film was moved to May 2022, according to Paramount, a unit of ViacomCBS Inc.

Movie theater operators including AMC Entertainment, Cineworld Group Plc, and Cinemark Holdings Inc hope for a summer rebound after a year of closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ninth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise, from Comcast Corp’s Universal Pictures, currently remains scheduled to hit cinemas on June 25.

Walt Disney Co’s Marvel film Black Widow is set to be released in theaters, and for a fee on the Disney+ streaming service, on July 9.
