Paramount Pictures has announced the release date for the forthcoming Paramount+ debut of Joseph Kosinski’s blockbuster action sequel Top Gun: Maverick. After over five months since its successful theatrical debut, the Tom Cruise-led film will officially be available for streaming on December 22, exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, the U.K., and Latin America. For South Korea and France, the sequel is expected to stream sometime in 2023.
Since its debut in theaters last May, Top Gun: Maverick has earned a worldwide gross of more than $1.4 billion at the box office, making it Cruise’s highest-grossing film to date.
Top Gun: Maverick is set in a world of drone technology and fifth-generation fighters and explores the end of the era of dogfighting. Maverick is now a flight instructor, who takes Bradley Bradshaw, the son of Maverick’s late partner Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, under his wing.
Joining Cruise are Miles Teller, Jon Hamm, Val Kilmer, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell, Monica Barbaro, Danny Ramirez, Manny Jacinto, Jay Ellis, Bashir Salahuddin, Jean Louisa Kelly, Charles Parnell, Ed Harris, and more.
Top Gun: Maverick is directed by Joseph Kosinski, who previously worked with Cruise in Oblivion, from a screenplay written by Peter Craig, Justin Marks, and Eric Warren Singer.
The original Top Gun was directed by Tony Scott and also starred Kelly McGillis, Anthony Edwards, and Tom Skerritt. The film won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Take My Breath Away,” performed by Berlin. In 2015, the United States Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the National Film Registry, finding it “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
