Top Gun: Maverick is an upcoming American action drama film directed by Joseph Kosinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Tom Cruise. The film is a sequel to the 1986 classic Top Gun, which starred Tom Cruise as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, a hotshot fighter pilot who attends the elite Top Gun Naval Flying School. The sequel picks up decades after the original, with Maverick now a flight instructor who takes on a new group of young pilots, including the son of his late friend and wingman, Goose.
The film has been making headlines recently due to its highly anticipated release, which has been delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Originally set to hit theaters in July 2019, the film was pushed back to June 2020, then to December 2020, and finally to May 2022. The delays have only added to the excitement surrounding the film, with fans eagerly anticipating the return of one of the most iconic characters in movie history.
In addition to the delays, the film has also been in the news due to its impressive cast, which includes not only Tom Cruise but also Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, Jon Hamm, and Ed Harris. The film's trailer, which was released in July 2019, has also generated a lot of buzz, with its stunning aerial footage and iconic soundtrack. Overall, Top Gun: Maverick is shaping up to be one of the biggest movies of 2022, and fans can't wait to see what Maverick and his new team of pilots have in store.
