1986’s Top Gun is an iconic high flying action film centered around students attending the US Navy’s Fighter Weapons School at Naval Air Station Miramar in San Diego. The events of Top Gun take flight after Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Cruise) and Nick “Goose” Bradshaw (Anthony Edwards) jump on an opportunity to train at the school. Along with the tale of the pilot's time at the academy, a love story also blossoms between Maverick and his instructor, Charlotte “Charlie” Blackwood, who was played by Kelly McGillis. Due to the acting talent, action packed scenes, aerial stunts, and quotable lines, the film quickly became a classic.

Top Gun: Maverickwill tell a new story stemming from the original film with both some familiar and new faces. The film also stars Jennifer Connelly (Requiem for a Dream), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Ed Harris (Westworld), Anthony Edwards (Zodiac), Lewis Pullman (The Strangers: Prey at Night), Jay Ellis (Insecure), and Danny Ramirez (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier).

Top Gun: Maverick is directed by Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy) with a screenplay penned by Ehren Kruger of The Skeleton Key, Eric Warren Singer (American Hustle), and Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible - Fallout). The story comes to us from Peter Craig (The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay - Part 1 and Part 2) and Justin Marks (The Jungle Book).

Top Gun: Maverick is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 27, 2022.
