‘Top Gun: Maverick’ has been a long time coming. After a staggering number of pandemic-related delays, the Tom Cruise action arrives May 27 after a Cannes premiere – 36 years after the original movie, Reagan-era blockbuster also starring Cruise, hit theaters.

In the interview with Total Film ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ star and producer Tom Cruise said that originally he wasn’t interested in doing a sequel, but “people all over the whole world were asking for it, and asking for it”. So the actor – according to his own words – was just waiting for the technology to reach a certain point to enable him “to put the audience inside that F/A-18”.

“I just had to wait for that right moment. And I realized it was either going to be now or never.”

Aside from Cruise, ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ also features Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Val Kilmer, Ed Harris and Miles Teller, who is playing Bradley Bradshaw aka Rooster, the son of Nick Bradshaw, aka Goose, Maverick's former Radar Intercept Officer who died in the first movie after a competitive training mission went wrong.

Here’s the sequel's official synopsis:

After more than 30 years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of TOPGUN graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose.” Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
