As it continues to break record after record, Paramount Pictures has revealed the release date for the Blu-Ray of Top Gun: Maverick.
The action drama is a sequel to the fan-favorite 1986 Tom Cruise movie that has remained in development for decades as a variety of directors, writers and storylines have changed. In other words, no one was deciding what or how. Until this year, of course.
Joseph Kosinski, who previously worked with Cruise on 2013’s Oblivion, got the director’s chair for Top Gun: Maverick, with a script coming directly from Tom Cruise’s frequent collaborators Christopher McQuarrie, Ehren Kruger and Eric Warren Singer.
The action in Top Gun: Maverick begins more than 30 years after its predecessor and shows us the character played by Cruise on the verge of forced retirement, and that because he possesses a rebellious personality. However, he is given yet another mission: to train a group of young graduate pilots for a while, which turns out to be more dangerous than anticipated.
Top Gun: Maverick Comes Closer to You
Alongside Cruise, the film’s ensemble cast includes the return of Val Kilmer, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, Ed Harris, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Monica Barbaro, Lewis Pullman, Charles Parnell, Jay Ellis and Danny Ramirez.
Top Gun: Maverick received mostly positive reviews from critics and was a box office success, and now audiences will have a chance to see it again soon.
Nearly three months after the film opened in theaters, Paramount Pictures has announced Blu-ray and digital release dates for Top Gun: Maverick. The film is scheduled to arrive on digital platforms on August 23, followed by 4K Ultra-HD, Blu-ray and DVD releases on November 1.
