Maverick is undoubtedly the gift that keeps on giving, according to Top Gun. Why not spend three hours watching the football beach scene from the movie in addition to enjoying the holiday season cuddled up on the sofa with your favorite Christmas movies? Thankfully, the studio has already done the hard work for you in their freshly released looping video of the sequence, so you won’t have to keep pressing play and rewind.
Viewers may anticipate seeing no fresh material in the just-released video. Much like the film, the three-hour version provides a happy break from the action as Maverick and Top Gun’s top graduates play some football on the beach. The most significant distinction between this version and the movie, aside from duration (and looping), is that this version has a festive musical soundtrack. I Ain’t Worried by OneRepublic was used as the scene’s soundtrack in the film.
Top Gun: Maverick, which was released more than 30 years after the first Top Gun and stars Tom Cruise as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, marks the character’s comeback. Mitchell has spent his whole life pushing the limits of naval aviation. But when Maverick is tasked with guiding Top Gun’s finest grads on a perilous mission, he quickly encounters a challenge he wasn’t quite prepared for: Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw (Miles Teller), the son of Maverick’s late comrade Goose (originally played by Anthony Edwards). Maverick must concentrate on getting himself and the others ready for the mission while he and Rooster butt heads.
Top Gun: Maverick has been a tremendous success since its first release earlier this year, consistently reaching new heights at the box office. It made $126.7 million during its debut weekend and has had strong performances every week. It finally overtook Avengers: Infinity War at the domestic box office, moving up to position #6 on the list of all movies ever made. It held steady and eventually made over $1 billion worldwide, becoming the first of Cruise’s films to accomplish so. It is presently the highest-grossing film of 2022.
Ehren Kruger, Eric Warren Singer, and Christopher McQuarrie wrote the script for the movie, which was directed by Joseph Kosinski. Lewis Pullman, Charles Parnell, Glen Powell, Jon Hamm, Jay Ellis, Danny Ramirez, Greg Tarzan Davis, Bashir Salahuddin, Monica Barbaro, Ed Harris, and Val Kilmer are among the additional cast members.
