The Paramount+ schedule for December 19-25 includes the highly-successful Top Gun sequel.
On Thursday, December 22, Paramount+ (sign-up for Paramount+ here) will add Top Gun: Maverick to its available content. The movie sees director Joseph Kosinski joining forces with Tom Cruise again after Oblivion. Written by Peter Craig, Justin Marks, and Eric Warren Singer, Top Gun: Maverick is set in a world of drone technology and fifth-generation fighters and explores the end of the era of dogfighting. Maverick is now a flight instructor, who takes Bradley Bradshaw, the son of Maverick’s late partner Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, under his wing. The film grossed over $1.400 billion at the box office during its theatrical run.
Joining Cruise are Miles Teller, Jon Hamm, Val Kilmer, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell, Monica Barbaro, Danny Ramirez, Manny Jacinto, Jay Ellis, Bashir Salahuddin, Jean Louisa Kelly, Charles Parnell, Ed Harris, and more.
The original Top Gun was directed by Tony Scott and also starred Kelly McGillis, Anthony Edwards, and Tom Skerritt. The film won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Take My Breath Away,” performed by Berlin. In 2015, the United States Library of Congress selected the film for preservation in the National Film Registry, finding it “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
