Tom Cruise often does his own stunts and we consider him a bit of a daredevil hanging off planes and flying them. TOP GUN: MAVERICK is no exception and the young actors were required to fly in Air Force jets to play pilots. A new featurette takes us behind the scenes with a look at what the actor's endured to star alongside the iconic Maverick.

TOP GUN: MAVERICK is in movie theaters next month on May 27.

Official Synopsis
After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of TOPGUN graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose.”

Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
