At the international premiere of Top Gun: Maverick in San Diego on Wednesday, Tom Cruise made an amazing landing on the red carpet. A chopper delivered the movie celebrity to the deck of the USS Midway aircraft carrier.

Cruise got out of the helicopter, which was emblazoned with the words “Tom Cruise. Top Gun: Maverick,” and approached the throngs of photographers, reporters, and fans who had waited 36 years to see the actor reprise his role as Lt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell.

While Cruise didn’t wear Maverick’s distinctive flying outfit, he did dress appropriately for the occasion, donning a dark grey suit and tie, as well as aviator sunglasses.

Despite early rumours that Cruise was flying the helicopter, the actor told ET’s Nischelle Turner that he wasn’t behind the wheel in this case.

“Today is not the day. I fly that chopper sometimes, but not today “With a giggle, Cruise continued.

When Cruise made his grand arrival, ET was with Cruise’s co-star, Jon Hamm, who portrays Vice in the film.

Hamm remarked, “I’m just thrilled he’s passing through the back of my shot, so that’s fantastic for me.” “You simply have to stand there in wonder.”

“It doesn’t get much better,” the Mad Men alum remarked.

The long-awaited sequel to 1986’s Top Gun enters cinemas on May 27, and it’s a picture that Hamm believes fans of the series will want to watch.

“This is a film you should watch in the cinemas,” Hamm said. “It seems like a warm welcome back to the cinemas after a few of years of silence. I believe that once people see this in the movies, and they see it large and loud and realize what type of experience it is, they will forget about the previous two years and return to the cinemas.”


ET also chatted with Jennifer Connelly, who plays Penny Benjamin alongside Cruise in the film, about what she’s learnt from working with him.

Connelly remarked of Cruise’s work ethic, “Just watching it in person honestly.” “I believe we’ve all seen his enthusiasms, and we’ve all heard about his courage with stunts and athleticism, so just getting to see it in person was incredible.”

Top Gun: Maverick will be released in cinemas on May 27.
