Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick has earned rave reviews following its first-ever screening.

The long-awaited sequel premiered at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Thursday (April 28), with critics and reporters hailing Top Gun: Maverick as one of the most exciting action movies in recent memory.

This widespread praise for Top Gun: Maverick could be seen as a surprising turn of events considering the project has taken more than 12 years to get to the big screen.

Production finally started on the sequel in May 2018 in California, but it would face multiple delays because of the pandemic. Originally scheduled for release in July 2019, Top Gun: Maverick will now arrive in cinemas three years later than scheduled.

These early reactions make it sound like Top Gun: Maverick is worth the wait, especially after cast member Jennifer Connelly teased that fans can expect some “extraordinary” flight scenes.
