Top Gun: Maverick became one of Tom Cruise’s most successful movies and had been breaking the box office as if the post-COVID impact on theatres had been nothing. The movie was released decades after its predecessor and the sense of nostalgia yet still managing to connect with a newer and younger audience was what made the film so successful.
To see Tom Cruise play the character he last saw in 1986 and make the sequel to be his most successful movie, it is as if the actor has done a full circle. The addition of Paramount+ to the array of streaming services has given the audience another platform to view the movie on. Naturally, Top Gun: Maverick has become the most-watched movie on the streaming service.

Top Gun: Maverick Rules Over Paramount+
While Paramount+ is still a fairly new streaming service, it still has an assortment of movies and TV shows for the audience to watch. One of these projects includes Tom Cruise‘s Top Gun: Maverick. The movie dominated the box office when it was first released regardless of the diminishing viewership that the pandemic influenced the theatres with. Just the same, Paramount+ plus was also taken over by the movie, and just how much the fans loved it.
The movie sees an entirely new set of pilots who need to be trained for an intricately dangerous mission that falls under the Top Gun program. Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell gets assigned to train these individuals and there he not only faces his past but learns to move on from it. The movie saw audiences both young and old. Those who went to watch it for nostalgia as well as those who wanted to experience something new, all found a place for themselves in the movie. A sequel after decades is a risk but if taken correctly, can lead to a brilliant movie like Top Gun: Maverick.
