“Top Gun: Maverick”, the sequel to the 1986 movie “Top Gun”, has been eagerly awaited for a long time. There were rumors that the film, whose release date was postponed several times due to the pandemic, would finally premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, and that the vision date was pushed forward for this reason.
“Top Gun: Maverick” has been confirmed to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, although some think the delay of the film is simply due to Tom Cruise’s busy schedule. Thus, “Top Gun: Maverick” will be the first Tom Cruise movie to screen at Cannes in 30 years, after “Far and Away” was directed by Ron Howard in 1992.
The film will be released on May 27, 2022, after its premiere in Cannes. The world premiere of the film is expected to take place in San Diego.
The plot of the film, in which Tom Cruise will appear before his fans as United States Navy Lieutenant Pete Mitchell, as in the first movie, is briefly as follows: Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, one of the best pilots in the Navy, is a brave test pilot where he belongs after 30 years of service. As he pushes the limits, he avoids the promotion that will tie him to the ground. He finds himself training a platoon of Top Gun alumni for a special mission that no pilot had ever seen before. Faced with an uncertain future and memories from his past, Maverick is forced to face his worst fears and embark on a mission that will require him to make a great sacrifice.
