The two action blockbusters Top Gun: Maverick and Mission: Impossible 7, both with actor Tom Cruise, will be postponed again. The sequel to the 1986 classic action fighter was originally scheduled to hit theaters in July 2019 before it several postponements due to the corona crisis on the part of Paramount. Because high-budget productions, as the two films are, require high revenues in order not to flop at the box office.

And with the ongoing pandemic and half-full movie theaters, this goal is difficult to achieve. So Paramount’s move to bring the two films to cinemas at a more favorable time is entirely understandable. Last the theatrical release was planned for December 2021. Tom Cruise is now scheduled to take off as flight instructor Pete “Maverick” Mitchell on May 27, 2022.

This also shifts another action blockbuster with Tom Cruise. Mission: Impossible 7 has to give way to the aviator flick and is expected to open in theaters on September 30th next year so as not to compete. The action thriller directed by Christopher McQuarrie, responsible for the last two Mission: Impossible parts Rogue Nation and Fallout, should actually hit the cinemas on May 27th. Nothing will come of it now. So fans will have to wait a little longer before they can admire Agent Ethan Hunt on screen.
