Tom Cruise is back with the long-delayed Top Gun sequel

Will things ever return to “normal”? After another year that began and ended with ramped-up restrictions, only a fool would hope that 2022 will be any different. But in movie terms, the success of No Time to Die and other big releases proves that Covid has not killed the public appetite for cinema-going.
