About Top Gun: Maverick
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.

Please note: For this one, we really encourage you to stay seated if catching any of the callbacks to the first movie is important to your viewing pleasure.
Because there’s a lot of them. And each one brought a smile to our Gen X faces.
And if your bathroom isn’t close, go once and hang in there for the rest of the movie!

- 30 minutes after Rooster plays the piano (go during the song if you are ok missing a callback or emotional moment)
- 45 minutes when Penny and Maverick go sailing (best time to go and to NOT miss a callback!)
