Tom Cruise returns to his iconic role after thirty-six years and climbs back into the cockpit again. On August 24th, it is time. On August 24th, experience Paramount Pictures’ Top Gun: Maverick on digital.
Of all the films that have been released this year for the summer blockbuster season, one stands out from the rest. That film is ‘Top Gun: Maverick.’ We waited thirty-six years for Tom Cruise to step up to the plate as Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell again. And when he did, the wait was completely worth it. The film took the fans who saw the original film in 1986 back in time once again. And opened the franchise up to a new generation of fans. With a worldwide gross of $1.3 billion and rising, the film is one of the best sequels ever made. (Read our review here).
Now, we can experience the phenomenon at home. On August 24th, the film will be available to buy on digital download with a physical release to follow on October 31st. But with the digital edition, we will be granted 110 minutes of bonus content. This is slightly more than the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD releases.
After more than 30 years of service as a top naval aviator, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot. Yet, Maverick must confront the ghosts of his past when he returns to TOP GUN to train a group of elite graduates and comes face-to-face with Lt. Bradshaw (Miles Teller), the son of his former wingman, “Goose”. Bitter rivalries ignite as the pilots prepare for a specialized mission, which will require the ultimate sacrifice from those chosen to fly it.
