‘Top Gun: Maverick’ to land on Paramount+ in December

NEW YORK (AP) — Seven months after it first arrived in theaters, “Top Gun: Maverick,” the year’s top film, will finally land on a streaming service. Paramount Pictures announced Tuesday that “Top Gun: Maverick,” having made more than $1.48 billion worldwide at the box office, will debut Dec. 22 on Paramount+. In an age where studios have increasingly pushed to shorten the span between theatrical and streaming, Paramount kept the “Top Gun” sequel going in theaters and, more recently, on video-on-demand for an uncommonly long and spectacularly lucrative run. It will be available on Paramount+ in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and in Latin America.
