The hype for Top Gun: Maverick has been overwhelming, but in the best way possible. Fans claiming that this movie made them feel “every emotion possible” in the best way. Top Gun: Maverick officially becomes the second movie since 2019 to cross $1 billion at the global box office. Which acts as a sequel to the 1986’s beloved Top Gun. Joseph Kosinski’s Top Gun: Maverick is the return of Tom Cruise’s hotshot pilot, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell.
The film has earned almost universally positive reviews from both audiences and critics. Kosinski previously stated that they filmed over 800 hours of footage for the film, with the cast members required to undertake significant training in order to be able to film themselves in the cockpit of real fighter jets. Isn’t that crazy?
