The sequel follows Capt. Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell (Tom Cruise) after more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators. 

Maverick is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. 

Cruise and the Top Gun cast underwent months of flight training in preparation for their roles, as they took to the sky themselves for the scenes. 

Serious training: Cruise was the pilot of many planes used throughout the film and even directed and filmed his own scenes while flying the plane and adjusting his own camera in front of himself with no room in the cockpit for a director's assistance

Tom was not allowed to fly an actual F-18 jet but he was the pilot of many other planes used throughout the film and even directed and filmed his own scenes while flying the plane and adjusting his own camera in front of himself with no room in the cockpit for a director’s assistance.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer is hoping the Academy Awards will recognize Top Gun: Maverick, especially the efforts of its lead star, Tom Cruise. 

Paramount Pictures could push it for the Best Picture Oscar as well, and with his long and fantastic career, maybe he can win the leading actor nod, which many people included Bruckheimer believe is long overdue. 

This comes as Cruise was named the highest-paid actor in Hollywood this year.
