Top Gun Maverick Release Date: When will it be out?
It has been more than 3 years for a sequel, Tom Cruise (Edge of Tomorrow 2) announced in 2018 that filming for the sequel will begin filming, with an expected release date of July 2019, but the release date was shifted severally to June 2020, July 2020, December 2020, and then finally to July 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic. Hopefully, the July 2nd, 2021 date holds firm. But the movie release date moves forward to November 19, 2021.
Top Gun: Maverick will hit theatres on May 27, 2022, delaying Tom Cruise’s other franchise installment, Mission: Impossible 7, until September 30, 2022.
If that date remains the case, the sequel will arrive on our screens a little less than three years after its original July 12, 2019 release date. Following a year’s delay, the date was pushed forward slightly to June 24, 2020, in the United States and July 17, 2020, in the United Kingdom.
However, the sequel was then pushed back to December 23, 2020, and that wasn’t the end of it as Paramount then pushed the sequel back to July 2, 2021, only to be delayed again to November 19, 2021.
Unfortunately, that wasn’t the final delay, but perhaps we’re finally at the end of the road.
The sequel was shot from May 2018 to June 2019.
