Top Gun Maverick the second film in the Top Gun franchise is set for a digital release this month and also sets out its plans for a winter blu-ray release date too which is all very exciting. Collider has said this Top Gun: Maverick sees Tom Cruise reprising the role of Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, which he originated in the 1986 film Top Gun. Over thirty years after the tragedy that occurred in the first film, Maverick is called back to TOPGUN to train a new team of graduates, which includes Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw (Miles Teller), the son of his late friend “Goose.” The film’s high-flying success is due in part to the awe-inspiring stunts and action, as well as the feel-good and upbeat experience it delivers. In addition to breaking box office totals, audiences have felt the need for speed and made the legacy sequel Paramount’s highest-grossing film ever and Cruise’s highest-grossing film in his entire illustrious career.
I saw the film when it was released in May just a few months ago and it would be one to watch again as it hits you where it hurts the most on an emotional level and nostalgic levels too are also through the roof with this film. The DVD is already up for preorder on golden discs and there is also the option should you want to purchase it as a double pack so you have the first and second movie as a boxset.
With the upcoming release of Top Gun: Maverick, audiences will be treated to over 110 minutes of bonus content, including behind-the-scenes moments with the filmmakers as they capture the spectacular aerial sequences, push the limits beyond Mach-10, and of course, you’ll be able to watch the cast’s intense flight training program that got them in shape for some of the insanely cool moments in the film. With Top Gun: Maverick marking such a momentous occasion in not only the history of Paramount, but Cruise’s personal career, the bonus content also features Cruise discussing his passion for aviation as he pilots his own aircraft and his incredible career at the 75th Cannes Film Festival. And Lady Gaga fans will be thrilled to know that both her music video and OneRepublic’s will be included in this release.
Top Gun: Maverick is still in theaters, but you can own the film on digital beginning on August 23, with the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD release arriving on November 1.
