The premiere of the film was held last night in San Diego, aboard a real aircraft carrier, the USS Midway!
Pete Mitchell still knows how to make a thunderous entrance! Last night was the premiere of Top Gun 2. Not in a Hollywood cinema or a large New York hall, but in southern California, near San Diego. Because that’s where the USS Midway is moored, a real US Army aircraft carrier, retired since 2004 and turned into a museum.
In ONE HOUR, #PrepareForTakeoff! We’re ready to launch aboard the aircraft carrier USS Midway with @MTVNews for the #TopGun: Maverick Global Premiere. See you there! Set your alarms and tune in LIVE as #TopGunTakesFlight in San Diego: https://t.co/C6Q0qY8kUb pic.twitter.com/4ih5Zh2vHx

Paramount had the good idea to organize there the first world screening of Top Gun: Maverickwhich allowed Tom Cruise to make a formidable superstar arrival. Sunglasses screwed on the nose, impeccable tuxedo, not even crumpled by the wind, he arrived solo from a helicopter in the colors of the feature film, downright acronym Top Gun: Maverick !
After walking along the bridge to join the red carpet, he reunited with Miles Teller and Jennifer Connelly, his two co-stars, for some more traditional photos.
Top Gun: Maverick will be shown at the Cannes Film Festival, in a few days, before a national release scheduled for May 25.
