Buckle up. “Top Gun: Maverick” is coming out next week, and you’ll be able to watch Tom Cruise’s thrilling flying missions from the comfort of your couch. The sequel, which was a big hit at the box office, will be available digitally starting August 23. The 4K Ultra HD, DVD, and Blu-ray versions will come out on November 1.
The digital release comes with 110 minutes of special features that give fans a look at how the blockbuster hit was made. These features include a look at the intense training the cast went through to prepare for the film’s unmatched air battle scenes, a look behind the scenes at how the crew captured Oscar-worthy aerial sequences, and a conversation with Cruise about his passion for aviation and how he flies his own plane.
You’ll also be able to watch a master class with the “Top Gun” star. It was recorded at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and in it, he talks about his career over the past 10 years. Plus, an extended version of the movie has a funny scene where Tom Cruise and James Corden fly two different fighter planes together.
When it came out in May, the Paramount sequel, which was directed by Joseph Kosinski and starred Miles Teller, Glen Powell, and Jon Hamm, broke box office records. It made more than $675.5 million in the U.S. and $709.3 million abroad, making it the first movie of the year to make more than $1 billion worldwide.
Owen Gleiberman, a film critic for Variety, wrote in his review, “This buckle-up follow-up shows why we need movie stars.” “It goes way beyond Cruise’s rah-rah participation in what amounts to the glorified U.S.
military recruitment commercial (the 1986 movie may have been as well-made as a Swiss watch, but it didn’t hide its GI Joe agenda). It’s how we can relate to the guy when he does something that most of us thought was impossible. It turns out that we need Maverick more than ever right now.”
