“Top Gun: Maverick is a phenomenal motion picture, and we take deep pride in celebrating this tremendous achievement alongside Tom Cruise, our filmmakers and cast, our marketing and distribution teams, and, of course, all the new and original Top Gun fans, without whom this wouldn’t have been possible,” said Brian Robbins, President and CEO of Paramount Pictures.
The film has been a huge success for Tom Cruise by becoming his highest grossing film ever, It has also earned more than $1 billion at the global box office,
Much of the film’s success comes from its action sequences. These scenes, some of which could only be filmed once due to the set blowing awaystand out and are some of the reasons we praised the film in our review, We called Top Gun: Maverick “an out-of-bounds blast of afterburner fumes and thrillseeker highs that’s sure to please audiences looking for a classic summer blockbuster.”
