Top Gun 2: Here is when Top Gun Maverick is released on BluRay, 4K, digital and streaming
Tom Cruise, Lewis Pullman and Miles Teller sparkled in the sequel to Top Gun. Here’s when it will be jetting its way to you on DVD, BluRay and Digital.
Do you feel the need for speed?
The sequel to the 80s classic came almost 35 years after the original but rocketed to the top of the box office immediately on release.
Directed by Joseph Kosinski, the sequel was a hit with audiences across the globe and amassed an almost perfect 96% rating on highly respected film review site Rotten Tomatoes.
Released to critical acclaim in May, the Paramount and Skydance production passed the $1.2 billion mark at the worldwide box office in June, making it the the highest grossing film of the year by some distance, beating both Jurassic World Dominion and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness into second and third place.
Starring Hollywood A-lister Tom Cruise, the American actor stars as Lt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, the US naval aviator who returns to lead a detachment of graduates for a special assignment – though in order to succeed, he must confront the ghosts of his past and his deepest fears.
Alongside Cruise is Jennifer Connolly (Blood Diamond), who plays Maverick’s love interest Penny Benjamin, while Miles Teller (Whiplash), Glen Powell (Set It Up) and Lewis Pullman (Bad Times at the El Royale) form the nucleus of Maverick’s team.
However, despite being a huge hit with film fans, director Kosinski admits he didn’t think the blockbuster would happen.
“Tom (Cruise) really didn’t want to do another Top Gun movie,” he explained.
“I think he walked into that room prepared to say, ‘Thank you for coming all this way, and I appreciate it, but I’m not interested in making another movie.’ Then at the end of that meeting, he picked up the phone, and he called the head of the studio and said, ‘We’re making another Top Gun.’ So, that was a pretty epic meeting, and pretty amazing to see that level of power on display.”
And boy are we glad he changed his mind...
