Starring Hollywood A-lister Tom Cruise, the American actor stars as Lt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, the US naval aviator who returns to lead a detachment of graduates for a special assignment – though, in order to succeed, he must confront the ghosts of his past and his deepest fears.
Alongside Cruise is Jennifer Connolly (Blood Diamond), who plays Maverick’s love interest Penny Benjamin, while Miles Teller (Whiplash), Glen Powell (Set It Up) and Lewis Pullman (Bad Times at the El Royale) form the nucleus of Maverick’s team.
After more than 30 years of service as one of the Navy's top aviators, Pete "Maverick" Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. Training a detachment of graduates for a special assignment, Maverick must confront the ghosts of his past and his deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who choose to fly it.

When Will I Be Able to Stream Top Gun: Maverick?
Top Gun: Maverick will be the first available to purchase digitally on August 23rd. A physical release for Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, and DVD versions will trail behind on November 1st (pre-order here).
Each release includes over 110 minutes of bonus content, including behind-the-scenes footage and flight-focused featurettes like the historical “Letter to Aviation” and “Forging the Darkstar” about pushing beyond Mach-10. Also featured are music videos from Lady Gaga and OneRepublic, an acting “Masterclass with Tom Cruise” from the 75th Cannes Film Festival, and of course, a trailer for Cruise’s next Mission Impossible movie.
There has been no confirmation about whether Top Gun: Maverick will land on Paramount Pictures’ streaming service Paramount+ at any point in the future. Considering the film’s standing as an example against day-and-date release schedules and the film’s continued run in theaters, its arrival to streamers does not appear to be imminent.
