Top Gun: Maverick Is Being Re-Released Before Avatar Comes For Box Office Crown
Beginning this Friday, December 2, 2022, Tom Cruise's "Top Gun: Maverick" will return to theaters for a limited, two-week engagement — a mere month after it left theaters following a ridiculously successful run. The reason for this is that there is a bit of a hole to fill before "Avatar: The Way of Water" swoops in to presumably set some of its own records.
The only real blockbuster in theaters right now is "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," which is slowly starting to run out of gas, and the biggest movie coming out this weekend is the Christmas flick "Violent Night.” So, from Paramount’s perspective, there is no reason not to try and squeeze a little more juice from this downright miracle of a movie.
Paramount held onto the movie for two years during the pandemic, expecting it would be a hit. Chris Aronson, President of Domestic Distribution for Paramount Pictures, said, “‘Top Gun: Maverick’ truly epitomizes the magic of the moviegoing experience, and we wanted to provide fans the opportunity to once again enjoy this cinematic spectacle as it was meant to be seen.”
