It was a star studded night as Ireland’s best known famous faces stepped out in style for the Irish premiere of Top Gun: Maverick at Cineworld IMAX, Dublin.
The film, which stars Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer and Jennifer Connelly looks set to be the blockbuster of the summer.
The high anticipated sequel to the 1986 hit film, Top Gun, sees Tom Cruise as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell who after more than 30 years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.
Training a detachment of graduates for a special assignment, Maverick must confront the ghosts of his past and his deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who choose to fly it.
Guests arrived at a VIP drinks reception prior to the screening, and judging by the reaction afterwards, Top Gun: Maverick is a must see this summer.
