Directed by Joseph Kosinski
It’s been a minute since we’ve seen Tom Cruise rocking his Top Gun aviator threads, but alas, Hollywood has granted us a sequel to the popular ’80s flick in the form of Top Gun: Maverick. In this new entry, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Cruise) is tasked with training a batch of new recruits, one of whom (played by Miles Teller) is the son of Maverick’s late wingman. With the odds stacked against him and his trainees, Maverick is forced to reckon with past demons if there’s any hope of preparing everyone for the challenges that await.
