Paramount Pictures has pushed the release of Tom Cruise movie "Top Gun: Maverick" to November from July, the studio said on Friday, a move that deprives theatres of what was expected to be one of the biggest releases of the summer blockbuster season.

The sequel to the 1986 hit "Top Gun" will now debut in theatres on Nov. 19, the day Paramount had planned to release Cruise's seventh "Mission: Impossible" movie. That film was moved to May 2022, according to Paramount, a unit of ViacomCBS Inc. Movie theatre operators including AMC Entertainment, Cineworld Group Plc and Cinemark Holdings Inc hope for a summer rebound after a year of closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ninth instalment of the "Fast & Furious" franchise, from Comcast Corp's Universal Pictures, currently remains scheduled to hit cinemas on June 25. Walt Disney Co's Marvel film "Black Widow" is set to be released in theatres, and for a fee on the Disney+ streaming service, on July 9.
