Top Gun: Maverick Comes To Streaming In December, Here's When And How To Watch
After a long and successful run in theaters, the Tom Cruise action movie Top Gun: Maverick will be available to stream at home on December 22. The film will stream on Paramount+ starting on that date.
Paramount+ put out a video on social media to hype the streaming release of the film--check it out below. Maverick is already available to watch at home, as it became available to purchase outright and rent earlier this year, but December marks the first time it's coming to a streaming service.

Prior to Maverick's release over Memorial Day weekend in May, Cruise said there was no chance that the film would come to a streaming service for its debut. The movie was delayed multiple times due to the pandemic, and some thought movie studio Paramount would cut a deal with a streaming service to get the movie out the door sooner. That never happened, though, thanks in part to Cruise's insistence that the film be released under the traditional theatrical model.
Cruise, a longtime supporter of the theatrical model, told an audience in May, "I make movies for the big screen."
Maverick is 2022's highest-grossing movie in the world, bringing in $1.486 billion, which is well ahead of the No. 2 film of the year, which is Jurassic World: Dominion ($1.001 billion). Thanks to Maverick's huge success in theaters, Cruise is said to have made $100 million from the movie.
