Tom Cruise shares a Top Gun: Maverick behind-the-scenes image honoring the original movie. The long-awaited sequel to the classic 1986 film was originally scheduled for a release about two years ago. It was initially postponed to give production more time to choreograph the film's complex flight sequences. But then, COVID-19 hit and the film faced further delays due to the pandemic. The blockbuster is currently scheduled for a November 19th release with the option to stream on Paramount+ 45 days after its theatrical debut.

Inspired by a magazine article titled "Top Guns," the classic flight film debuted in 1986 to a mixed critical response, though there was plenty of praise to go around for its aerial stunts and performance from Cruise. Top Gun quickly became a box office phenomenon and eventually the highest-grossing film of the year, raking in $353 million against a measly $15 million production budget. Starring as the cocky yet likable protagonist Pete Mitchell with the now-iconic call sign Maverick, Top Gun helped elevate Cruise into the exemplary action star he is known as today.

RELATED:Why Top Gun: Maverick’s Release Delay Is Bad News For The Sequel

Now, as audiences eagerly await Top Gun: Maverick’s release, Tom Cruise shared a behind-the-scenes image from the sequel in honor of Top Gun Day on May 13th. A vintage-looking website dedicated to the day lists various activities fans can do to celebrate the occasion, such as quoting the film, wearing aviator sunglasses, and playing volleyball in jeans. “#TopGunDay is a day created by and dedicated to the fans,” Cruise said in a Twitter post. “I can't wait for you guys to see Top Gun: Maverick later this year.” Check out the BTS image below:

Though it's difficult to glean much about Top Gun: Maverick from this photo, the film will feature Miles Teller as the son of Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, Maverick’s former partner whose death he was partially responsible for, forcing him to confront his emotional past. This is, of course, aside from the film’s epic aerial stunts and jaw-dropping flight sequences, which are wholly expected.

Top Gun was released in the United States on May 16, 1986, which begs the question of why the official day commemorating the film is held three days earlier on May 13th. Well, according to the website, it was intended for Top Gun Day to be observed on the day the film was released, but an error in a graphic read May 13 and it was too late to correct the mistake since word was already out. Regardless of when this special day is held, fans are likely excited to have a peek behind the scenes of Top Gun: Maverick.
