Tom Cruise’s ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Rolls Out the Red Carpet on the Deck of the USS Midway Ahead of Premiere!

The bright lights of Hollywood shined down on the USS Midway Museum when the carrier took center stage during the premiere for the long-anticipated motion picture, Top Gun: Maverick. Midway’s flight deck brimmed with smiling celebrities, star-struck fans and enthusiastic media during Paramount Picture’s “Top Gun: Maverick Global Premiere Red Carpet Fan Experience.”

The star of the movie, Tom Cruise reprising his role as naval aviator Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, arrived on the Midway’s flight deck in Top Gun style aboard an AS350 Astar helicopter with the new movie’s logo blazing on its side. The lucky fans in attendance cheered feverishly as the 59-year-old Cruise emerged from the helicopter and stepped onto the red carpet.

“This moment, right here, to see everybody, this is pretty epic,” said Cruise to the fans in attendance.
