A great climate of uncertainty is once again present for the film industry, especially in the coming months with the Delta variant of the coronavirus lurking. For this reason, Paramount Pictures has made the decision to postpone the release date of some of its major releases planned for the remainder of the year.
The two main films that have undergone this change are the two great films starring Tom Cruise that we were going to see soon: ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ and ‘Mission Impossible 7’. The first of them, a sequel to the iconic film directed in 1986 by Tony Scott, changes its premiere scheduled for September 19 and moves to May 27, 2022, the date on which it will finally be seen coinciding with the celebration of Memorial Day in the United States. In this way this film occupies the position initially planned for the seventh installment of the ‘Mission Impossible’ saga, which is postponed to September 30, 2022.
According to Deadline, these changes have been initiated by Paramount after consulting with a team of experts who have studied the impact that releasing the films on the dates originally planned could have, taking into account the increase in the presence of cases of the Delta variant of COVID-19 in the country and the vaccination quite stopped. With this decision, it is expected that by releasing the films next year, the benefits can be maximized and a higher box office collection can be achieved.
But the two films starring Tom Cruise have not been the only ones to postpone their premiere, as Paramount has also announced that ‘Jackass 4’, the fourth installment of the ‘Jackass’ saga, delayed its premiere from October 22 of this year to February 4, 2022. It is also necessary to remember that this same study delayed the premiere of the film ‘Clifford: The Big Red Dog’ a few weeks ago, which was originally going to be seen in the autumn but has yet to announce its final date.
This dance of dates leaves Paramount without any major production planned in the remaining months of 2021 and its first major premiere will be the new ‘Scream 5’, which currently remains for January 14, 2022.
More and more delays
The seventh installment of ‘Mission Impossible’ thus announces a new delay in its release date that adds to the many others that the film has suffered in recent months, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and now especially by the Delta variant . With the change of date of this film it is expected that the eighth installment of the saga will also move, already confirmed, which was intended to reach theaters in July 2023. It is unknown if this date will be maintained, although at the moment this sequel has been announced filming has not started.
In addition to reuniting with the Ethan Hunt played by Tom Cruise, this film will once again feature Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Vanessa Kirby and Ving Rhames, to which are added the new additions of Nicholas Hoult and Hayley Atwell, which was Agent Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
