Top Gun: Maverick(2022)
After three decades of service, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is still working hard as a courageous test pilot – avoiding the honourable yet unwanted promotion that would see an end to his flying days. As one of the Navy’s best aviators, he is tasked with training a detachment of Top Gun graduates. The group has a special mission that requires them to achieve something no pilot has ever done before them. Can Maverick help Rooster – the son of his late friend “Goose” – to overcome his uncertain future?
