Top Gun: Maverick is a 2022 American action drama film directed by Joseph Kosinski. It was written by Ehren Kruger, Eric Warren Singer, and Christopher McQuarrie, from a story conceived by Peter Craig and Justin Marks. It is the sequel to 1986’s Top Gun. Tom Cruise stars as the test pilot Maverick, alongside Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, and Val Kilmer. Cruise and Kilmer reprise their roles from the first film. The film premiered at CinemaCon on April 28, 2022, and is scheduled to be theatrically released in the United States on May 27, 2022, by Paramount Pictures. It was scheduled for release on July 12, 2019, but was postponed to “allow the production to work out all the complex flight sequences”. The film was further delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic and scheduling conflicts. Early reviews of the film have been positive with acclaim for its cinematography, aerial sequences, emotional weight and a worthy successor to the original film.

Preliminary production on the film officially started on May 30, 2018, in San Diego, California During late August a 15-person film crew from Paramount and Bruckheimer Films were aboard the Norfolk-based aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln to shoot flight deck operations. In mid-February 2019, Cruise and the production crew were sighted on board USS Theodore Roosevelt at NAS North Island. In March, filming was completed at NAS Whidbey Island in Oak Harbor, Washington. On June 19, 2019, Miles Teller revealed in an interview that he had finished filming two days earlier. Principal photography was scheduled until April 15, 2019, in San Diego, California; Lemoore, California; China Lake, California; Lake Tahoe, California; Seattle, Washington; and Patuxent River, Maryland. The movie was filmed in IMAX format using IMAX-Certified Sony Venice 6K Full Screen cameras.

Synopsis :
After more than three decades as one of the U.S. Navy’s top fighter pilots, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell continues to push his limits as a test pilot. He refuses to move up in rank because it would mean giving up flying. He is tasked with training a detachment of young Top Gun school graduates for a special mission no pilot would ever imagine. On this mission, Maverick meets Lieutenant Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw, the son of his late friend, navigator Nick “Goose” Bradshaw. Faced with an uncertain future, haunted by his ghosts, Maverick must confront his worst nightmares in a mission that will require the greatest of sacrifices.
