Top Gun: Maverick gets streaming date on Paramount Plus — here’s how to watch


The wait to watch Top Gun: Maverick online is finally ending as the mega-hit’s touching down on the Paramount Plus tarmac next month. Yes, while all the Marvel movies don’t take more than a couple of months or so — sometimes less — Tom Cruise’s latest flick will have taken 217 days to get there.

The number 1 movie at the box office in 2022, with $716,657,763 in the U.S. alone (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness came in second with $411,331,607) Top Gun: Maverick was making money in November, according to BoxOfficeMojo (opens in new tab)

And it’s going to be streaming on Paramount Plus, starting Dec. 22 — a nice holiday treat for Paramount Plus subscribers around the world, as it’s being released in many regions at the same day. Variety reports the film will debut on the service in “the U.S., Canada, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and other markets, the U.K. and Latin America.”

Tom Cruise’s Pete “Maverick” Mitchell proves he’s not too old for the world of military piloting in the film, as he’s brought in to teach the latest crop of Top Gun graduates. Miles Teller co-stars as Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw, the son of Maverick’s late co-pilot Nick “Goose” Bradshaw.  

Top Gun: Maverick’s extended stay in theaters makes a ton of sense, as the film’s amazing flight sequences almost beg to be seen in theaters. 

Check out the trailer for yourself, and then we’ve got all the details on how to watch Top Gun: Maverick online.

How to watch Top Gun: Maverick online anywhere on Earth

Just because Paramount Plus isn’t available everywhere (though it’s expanding) doesn’t mean you need to miss Top Gun: Maverick if you’ve travelled somewhere where the service isn’t working. Watching along with the rest of the internet can be pretty easy. With the right VPN (virtual private network), you can stream the show from wherever you go.

We’ve evaluated many options, and the best VPN is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).
