Paramount Studios has abandoned its plans to release the military action film "Top Gun: Maverick" in 2021 and once again postponed the release of the spy thriller "Mission Impossible 7." The box office schedule for both films, starring Tom Cruise, has been revised quite drastically.
Thus, the sequel to the popular 80's tape, perhaps, will be presented to viewers on May 27, 2022, and the continuation of the story of the team Ethan Hunt, probably fans of the series will know September 30, 2022.
It is claimed that the decision was made after Paramount management consulted with experts and their own global team and considering the current situation with the spread of the COVID-19 virus and its delta variant around the world.
The cinema attendance forecast bodes better for next year, which will be a better time to maximize box office potential.
Recall that the studio has previously sold some of its up-and-coming film projects to streaming companies. Paramount also sued the insurance company that serviced the creation of "Mission Impossible 7", accusing it of violating the terms of the contract, which involved paying $100 million for forced downtime.
