Glen Powell nearly went broke waiting for release of Top Gun: Maverick

The Anyone But You star says he almost emptied his bank account before the movie hit cinemas and he got paid. "I'd never made any significant amount of money on a movie, including Top Gun, and I was depleting a bank account to a point where my accountant was like, 'This pandemic cannot last much longer,'" Top Gun: Maverick was slated to come out in 2019, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The movie was expected to come out on a streaming service, but star Tom Cruise reportedly refused as he wanted to release it in theatres.
