Amid rising cases of coronavirus in the US and growing uncertainty surrounding its cinemas reopening, Paramount has made a significant shakeup to their release schedule that sees two of the biggest films of the year delayed to 2021. Originally set for a March 19 release, the sequel to the horror hit A Quiet Place was among the first films delayed by coronavirus. Now, rather than its rescheduled September release date, the film starring Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, and Cillian Murphy will now arrive in April 2021. The Top Gun sequel was supposed to be one of this summer's biggest films before it was shifted from its original June release and set to debut in December. Set some thirty years after the 1986 classic, Top Gun: Maverick sees Tom Cruise return to his iconic role as daredevil pilot Peter “Maverick” Mitchel and will now take flight in July 2021. The delays certainly come as sad news to fans who will now be waiting an entire year from when they initially expected to enjoy these films, but we can be reassured at least that Paramount remains committed to a theatrical release for two films that definitely need to be seen on the big screen.
