Top Gun: Maverick Featurette Showcases the Power of the Naval Aircraft
Published 1 month ago
Top Gun: Maverick is set to hit theaters by the end of the week, and there’s been a lot of hype when it comes to the practical way the film was able to shoot the fighter planes. Just in, we have a new featurette showcasing the ‘Power of the Naval Aircraft’.
With Tom Cruise’s track record as an action star, it was kind of no surprise that he would be legitimately flying planes for the film. What’s crazy is they were also able to take the rest of the cast through a pilot training camp, and some of them had to learn the ins and outs of the fighter planes themselves.
Despite the original Top Gun’s place in pop-culture, a lot of critical acclaim has been coming the way of Maverick, saying that it’s more than just a sequel to the original film. No doubt, Cruise and the team have elevated the filmmaking medium, and I can’t wait to see what they have to bring to the big screen.
After more than thirty 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 Top Gun 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.
Top Gun: Maverick comes out to theaters on May 27.
