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 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.
