Top Gun: Maverick is directed by Joseph Kosinski from a script that saw involvement from Mission: Impossible's Christopher McQuarrie. Catch it in theaters starting June 26, 2020.
"Part of my deal was that I had to fly in the F-14 and they had to film me flying in the F-14 and have it be part of the movie," Cruise explained during a Conan interview over the summer. In fact, Cruise added, he and the Top Gun team made a concerted effort to push for "practical" shooting methods instead of relying on CGI.
"I'm here to entertain you," he said at the time. "That's the privilege of my job. I love it. I love making all different kinds of movies. And with Top Gun, I felt that one of the things that we can deliver to an audience is that kind of experience."
