Top Gun: Maverick, the world’s No. 1 box office movie in 2022, is headed to retail channels, beginning with digital on Aug. 23, and DVD, Blu-ray Disc and 4K UHD Blu-ray on Nov. 1 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
The Top Gun sequel, again starring Tom Cruise, has generated more than $1.3 billion in global box office receipts in 12 weeks of release and is the highest-grossing film of the producer/actor’s acclaimed career. The movie was No. 2 at the North American weekend box office through Aug. 14.
In the 30 years since the 1986 original, Top Gun: Maverick finds Cruise’s character Pete “Maverick” Mitchell 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 late best friend, “Goose.” Bitter rivalries ignite as the pilots prepare for a specialized mission, which will require the ultimate sacrifice from those chosen to fly it.
The digital release takes viewers deep inside the making of the actioner with more than 110 minutes of bonus content.
