Top Gun: Maverick will be released in cinemas on May 27, 2022. Top Gun: Maverick is an upcoming American drama film directed by Joseph Kosinski.
It is written by Eren Kruger, Eric Warren Singer, and Christopher McQuarrie, and based on a short story by Peter Craig and Justin Marks, and is a sequel to the 1986 film Top Gun. The film stars Tom Cruise, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, and Val Kilmer. Cruise and Kilmer return to their roles from the first film.
The plot of The Top Gun: Maverick
The Top Gun program is being shut down, as Maverick is informed by Ed Harris’ Admiral. Maverick, who has never been one to follow the rules, disregards the Admiral’s warnings and boards his plane.
His full-speed trip to Mach 10 ends in disaster, as it appears that the pilot was killed in mid-flight by a mid-air explosion.
Fortunately, Maverick is discovered alive when he walks into a country café and inquires, “Where am I?”
“Earth,” a little boy reply.
“After more than 30 years of duty as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the boundaries as a brave test pilot and avoiding the rise in rank that would ground him,” the official synopsis says.

“When Maverick finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission like no other, he meets Lt Bradley Bradshaw, calls sign ‘Rooster,’ the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt Nick Bradshaw, alias ‘Goose.’
“Faced with an unsure future and the demons of his past, Maverick is lured into a battle with his own greatest fears, culminating in a mission that requires the ultimate sacrifice from those chosen to fly it.”
To keep up with the times, the film will focus on the end of dogfighting and the beginning of the new era of drone warfare.
Our pilots are expected to face off against the Russians, exactly as they did in the original.
