Fans are going to have to wait a little bit longer to see Tom Cruise back in the cockpit.
Top Gun: Maverick‘s release has been pushed back one year, ET has learned. The Paramount Pictures film, which was supposed to be released in July 2019, is now set to hit theaters in summer 2020.
ET has learned that the movie’s delayed release allows production to put more work into the complex flight sequences, much of which is not being shot until 2019. Rather than just push the film to a fall 2019 release, the studio decided to keep a summer release to fit the tone of the film as a summer blockbuster.
