Scheduled for a release at the end of May, the movie “Top Gun: Maverick” will be screened during the fortnight of the Cannes Film Festival, which will take place from May 17 to 28.
Postponed many times
We no longer expected it… Postponed many times due to the pandemic, the blockbuster Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel, thirty-five years later, to Tony Scott’s cult Top Gun worn by Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis, is finally going to be presented in cinemas around the world. Filming for Top Gun: Maverick began in May 2018, and the film was originally set to be released to great fanfare in July 2019. Almost three years later, the film is scheduled for release in France on May 25. And to celebrate this event, what could be better than a presentation as glamorous as that of the Cannes Film Festival ?
Tom Cruise could be at the Cannes festival
On Monday March 14, the American site The Hollywood Reporter announced exclusively that Top Gun: Maverick would therefore take off officially at the next Cannes Film Festival, which will take place from May 17 to 28. This is the first time in 30 years, that a movie with Tom Cruise has been shown on the Croisette. The 59-year-old actor could also be present for the event. But this has not yet been confirmed, says the American site The Hollywood Reporter. The film will see Tom Cruise reprising the role of Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, one of the best fighter pilots in the United States Navy, in charge of training a detachment of young graduates from the Top Gun school. Among them is Lt. Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw, the son of his late friend, navigator Nick “Goose” Bradshaw. Haunted by old ghosts, Pete Mitchell will have to prepare them for a particularly perilous mission that could change everything for him.
