Paramount has pushed back the release dates for both A Quiet Place 2 and Top Gun: Maverick, which follows recent delays for Christopher Nolan and WB's Tenet, as well as Disney movies for Mulan, Star Wars, and Avatar.
Insiders have filled me in how Hollywood is in panic mode and that there could be a big year gap regarding new content.
Regarding the new release dates from Paramount:
A Quiet Place 2 moved from Mar. 20 to Sept. 4 and now will be released on April 23, 2021.
Top Gun 2 was originally set to be released June 24 and has also vacated the Dec. 23 release, and will now get released next year, July 2, 2021.
The reason for all the release date delays is because of fears surrounding the coronavirus as well as the movie theater shutdowns across the globe and in the United States, particularly with California shutting down its movie theaters for a second time and no theaters open in New York.
A film analyst recently stated no movies may get released this year which could last until mid-2021 because of the COVID restrictions as it wouldn't be worth it for the studios to do so with limited, or, in the case of Cali and NY, no seating.
A Quiet Place II
A Quiet Place 2 is written and directed by John Krasinski starring Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy, and Djimon Hounsou.
Synopsis: Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.
Top Gun 2
Top Gun: Maverick is directed by Joseph Kosinski also starring Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, and Lewis Pullman, with Ed Harris.
Synopsis: After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose.” Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
