The wait is finally over: Top Gun: Maverick has just hit the big screen after many, many delays and is already causing quite a stir at the box office. However, one question remains: can you watch the movie from the comfort of your own home?
It’s been 36 years since the original Top Gun hit screens and the sequel has been highly anticipated ever since it was announced that Tom Cruise would reprise his role as Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell.
While it has only been available for a short period, the sequel is already becoming something of a phenomenon. It has been raking in money at the box office and received dozens of impressive reviews, easily making it one of the must-see movies of the summer.
Can you stream Top Gun: Maverick online?
Over the past few years, the idea of releasing a movie directly to streaming services has become much more common. However, Top Gun: Maverick, at this point, is purely a theatrical release with no option to buy or rent the film at home.
When it comes to streaming, Top Gun: Maverick will likely air on Paramount Plus (currently available in the US and coming to the UK on June 22). Paramount could add the movie to its streaming service and make it available for digital purchase) or rentals, 45 days after its theatrical debut, meaning we could be looking at a July release date, however this is far from confirmed at this stage.
Top Gun: Maverick is currently available for pre-order on iTunes (where it will cost £13.99 in the UK), however there is no release date attached. We will update this article when we know more.
