TOP GUN MAVERICK. Top Gun 2 is finally hitting theaters, just days after the film premiered at Cannes with Tom Cruise in attendance. Date, cast, reviews, all to know.
[Mis à jour le 21 décembre 2021 à 16h01] After 36 years of absence from the screen, Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell returns to fly over cinemas. Top Gun 2: Maverick is released in France on May 25, 2022. A few days earlier, Tom Cruise was present at the Cannes Film Festival to present the feature film on the Croisette before receiving a surprise palme d’honneur.
What did critics think of Top Gun 2? The first opinions have fallen. Top Gun : Maverick completely won over the critics during the press screenings and the Cannes screening. The feature film already has 97% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, the press review aggregator with 111 comments from international media. In France, we are also conquered by the return of Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell. “It’s mind-blowing” for Le Figaro, while Télérama recognizes that it is a “pure pleasure of cinema.” For TF1, “the sequel to the 1986 cult film plays the nostalgia card with intelligence while multiplying the amazing action scenes”. The return of Top Gun is, it seems, a success, to be discovered without fail on the big screen.
Synopsis – Refusing to rise in rank to still have the right to fly, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is entrusted with the training of students of the school Top Gun. They will have to carry out a particularly dangerous mission and it is up to Maverick to ensure that they can carry it out. While doing so, he meets the son of his late friend Goose.
Originally planned for summer 2020, Top Gun 2 was hit hard by the health crisis and has seen its release date questioned many times. The feature film is finally announced for a release on May 25, 2022after several postponements. Top Gun 2: Maverick premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on May 18, 2022.
