For the past few years, Marvel has dominated the box office. However, in a move no one saw coming, Top Gun: Maverick beat out Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to become the highest-grossing film this year, and it shows few signs of slowing down.
Top Gun: Maverick is the sequel to the 1986 film Top Gun and stars Tom Cruise as Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell as he reluctantly returns to the United States Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program. There, he forms a group of young recruits, including the son of his deceased best friend.
If you’re wondering when you can watch Top Gun: Maverick from the comfort of your own home, we’ve got you covered. You can also check when Thor: Love and Thunder is available to stream.
When is Top Gun: Maverick available to stream?
Top Gun: Maverick does not yet have a firm streaming release date. According to Hollywood expert Matthew Belloni, that date may depend on Tom Cruise and what he negotiates with Paramount, given the ongoing theatrical success.
Typically, Paramount’s streaming window after a film’s first release in theaters is 120 days. Top Gun: Maverick was released on May 27, 2022, which would place the home release around the end of September 2022. However, Paramount may be pushing sooner for additional home release revenue, or else delaying as the film is still consistently making money via the box office.
Upon release, it will be available on Paramount+. This streaming platform has been available in the United States since Spring 2021 and costs $4.99 per month for ad-free viewing and $9.99 per month for ad-free playback. Alternatively, you can subscribe annually for $49.99 per year for ad-supported content and $99.99 per year for ad-free content.
Paramount+ has just launched in the UK and you can subscribe to it for £6.99 per month or £69.90 per year. With an account, you can also stream shows like Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and the live-action series Halo. All new subscribers get a seven-day free trial.
When does Top Gun: Maverick come out on VOD?
Again, no firm release date has been given for the VOD release of Top Gun: Maverick. However, we do know that Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (another big Paramount movie) was released around the same time on VOD as it was on Paramount+ in the US – so we’re also expecting Top Gun: Maverick to arrive in VOD stores around fall 2022.
Here are the places we expect it to be available:
When does Top Gun: Maverick come out on DVD/Blu-ray?
Just like the streaming and VOD release dates, we don’t yet know when Top Gun: Maverick will be available on DVD/Blu-ray. We know that Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is due out on DVD in early August, about two and a half months after the streaming release.
If Top Gun: Maverick follows this pattern, and if the film is released digitally in September, we would see it become available on DVD/Blu-ray. around December 2022. Of course, this is just speculation.
