We won’t have to wait too much longer for the next Tom Cruise movie as Paramount has decided to give us Top Gun: Maverick slightly sooner than expected.
Maverick will be released on June 24th instead of the original date of June 26th as Paramount Pictures has officially bumped-up the action film’s domestic theatrical release date by two days.
It’s a nice update considering we were originally supposed to get the sequel on July 12th, 2019.
Directed by Joseph Kosinski, Maverick’s supporting cast includes Jon Hamm, Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris, Miles Teller, Val Kilmer, Glen Powell, Manny Jacinto, Jay Ellis, Monica Barbaro, Danny Ramirez, and Charles Parnell.
The film also boasts real flying sequences and stunt work.
Top Gun: Maverick’s script was penned by Ehren Kruger, Eric Warren Singer, and Christopher McQuarrie.
Speaking of writer and director Christopher McQuarrie, he’ll be reuniting with Tom Cruise on Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8 for Paramount that will be shooting this year under the working title of Libra.
The studio recently announced they’ve halted a planned 3-week shoot in Venice, Italy due to coronavirus concerns and are expected to find a replacement location shortly.
After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.
When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose.”
Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
