Tom Cruise’s Top Gun 2, Mission Impossible 7 and 8 delayed, but new Star Trek movie is coming

Recent articles

Last month, Disney announced further release date changes amid the ongoing pandemic and now Paramount Pictures have followed suit. Three Tom Cruise blockbusters have shifted again, starting with Top Gun 2, aka Top Gun: Maverick, which moves from July 2 to November 19 this year. While Mission: Impossible 7 has shifted from that November slot to May 27, 2022.

Additionally, Mission: Impossible 8 has been shifted from November 4, 2022 to July 7, 2023.

Cruise is teaming up again with Christopher McQuarrie, who has directed the last few films in the franchise.

With only a year between the two films, we wouldn’t be surprised if there is a major cliffhanger at the end of Mission: Impossible 7.

Despite disappointing news of a delay for fans, Paramount has announced a new Star Trek movie due to be released on June 9, 2023, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The last Star Trek movie to be released was 2016’s Star Trek Beyond, the third movie in JJ Abrams’ reboot series.

Last month, it was announced that Star Trek: Discovery screenwriter Kalinda Vazquez would be writing a new movie for the franchise.

A fourth film was in the works, starring Chris Pine’s Kirk opposite his late father, played by Chris Hemsworth in the opening sequence of Star Trek from 2009.

Presumably the film would have met them through time travel, but negotiations ended in April 2018.

Additionally, Quentin Tarantino has shown interest in making a Star Trek movie starring JJ Abrams in the past.

Whether Vazquez’s story is totally different or is somehow related to Tarantino’s idea or Hemsworth’s story remains to be seen.

Aside from this 2023 Star Trek movie and the delays from the Tom Cruise blockbuster, Paramount has shifted a few more of their upcoming projects.

GI Joe spin-off Snake Eyes has moved from its previous release of October 22, 2021 to July 23, 2021.
