Thirty-six years after the original film, a sequel to Top Gun was finally released. Develoment started in 2010 but was delayed by the death of director Tony Scott. Production began in 2017 with the hiring of Joseph Kosinski as director, with filming taking place in 2018 and 2019, with a release date pushed back several times due to the complex shoot and, of course, the pandemic. Multiple streaming outlets attempted to purchase the film, but returning star and producer Tom Cruise remained adamant that the film be released exclusively in theaters - which occurred last Memorial Day weekend. The wait proved worth it as the film grossed almost $1.5 billion worldwide, making it the second-highest-grossing film of 2022 and the highest-grossing film of Cruise's career. The film won multiple awards, including an Oscar for Best Sound and was nominated for Best Picture. Among its many achievements, the film is largely credited with “bringing people back to the theaters” after over two years of relatively low interest. Now we’re strapping ourselves into our flightsuits for Top Gun: Maverick!
