Top Gun: Maverick, the long-awaited sequel to Tom Cruise's iconic '80s action movie, has been delayed until December due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

A follow-up to Tony Scott's 1986 hit has been in the works for quite some time, with Tom Cruise interested in reprising his role as United States Naval Aviator Lieutenant Pete "Maverick" Mitchell. Top Gun: Maverick will fly this December.

Hollywood's summer movie season is all but finished. With the pandemic's quickening spread, it remains uncertain when movie theaters will reopen, or how much appetite moviegoers will have to visit cinemas when they initially open their doors.

In July past year, Tom Cruise made a surprise appearance at Comic-Con to show the first trailer for the long-awaited sequel to his military action movie. Last year, summer ticket sales accounted for $4.3 billion in USA and Canadian theatres.

Other major delays have so-far included Mulan, Black Widow, No Time to Die, Wonder Woman 1984, and Fast and Furious 9. Universal said on Wednesday that Minions would open in July 2021 instead of July 3 this year.

Paramount said on Thursday that the animated "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run", previously scheduled for a May release, would now open on July 31. With that in mind, many release dates are being pushed back fairly heavily, with Fast 9 having been moved back an entire year. This will push the Chris Pratt sci-fi Skydance movie "The Tomorrow War" to an unset date.
