Trailer: Soar into the wild blue yonder once again with Top Gun: Maverick

The blockbuster film that brought fans back to movie theaters in droves they year is back, as Top Gun: Maverick is returning to IMAX theaters.

Blockbuster again

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.

Paramount Pictures press release

For those who don’t know, part of Top Gun: Maverick will filmed with IMAX exclusive Expanded Aspect Ratio (EAR). The special method means that over an hour of footage is IMAX-specific, with a 1.90:1 aspect ratio. And that means that the scenes in question will have up to 26% “more picture”.

How’d they do that? Via a set of ” 6 IMAX-certified cameras strapped into real F-18 cockpits”. Yeah, that’s gonna look crazy on those insanely big IMAX screens. Not that you’ll have long to catch it.

Top Gun: Maverick is heading back to IMAX theaters only, landing on December 2nd, 2022. But when it does arrive, it’ll only be for a two week engagement. So make your plans.
