This new video feature for Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick reveals how the film’s stars took to the cockpit of real F/A-18 fighter jets to bring key scenes to life.
Released by Paramount Pictures, Skydance and Jerry Bruckheimer Films, the movie picks up the story more than thirty years after the original and finds Maverick (Cruise) back where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.
When he finds himself training a detachment of graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of his late friend Goose.
Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
Cruise and Teller are joined by Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Charles Parnell, Bashir Salahuddin, Monica Barbaro, Jay Ellis, Danny Ramirez, Greg Tarzan Davis, Ed Harris and Val Kilmer.
Top Gun: Maverick arrives exclusively in cinemas on May 25th.
