Paramount Pictures has pushed back its scheduled release of the long-awaited Top Gun: Maverick from late June to Christmas 2020, due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The movie studio is hoping that will be enough time for the pandemic to run its course and allow theaters around the world to reopen.

Tom Cruise plays Capt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in Top Gun: Maverick.

Tom Cruise reprises his role in the sequel to the now iconic 1986 film, which co-stars Glen Powell and Miles Teller.


Paramount has also announced a new premiere date for A Quiet Place II, which now is scheduled to hit theaters in time for Labor Day weekend – opening September 4, 2020.

The sequel to 2018’s A Quiet Place originally had been scheduled for a March 20th premiere date, prior to the global pandemic forcing the closure of movie theaters around the world.

With the world’s movie theaters currently closed, for now films will be premiering on streaming platforms such as Amazon and AppleTV+. The first new release since the pandemic will be next weekend, with Dreamworks Animation’s Trolls World Tour, the sequel to its popular 2016 animated musical adventure, Trolls.

In Trolls World Tour, Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake reprise their rolls as Poppy and Branch, this time discovering that there are six different troll tribes, each devoted to six different kinds of music – pop, rock, country, folk, classical and techno.


Trolls World Tour will be available to rent for a $20, 48-hour rental, starting April 10th.
