Epic Top Gun 4K Boxset Includes Original, Maverick & Collectibles


The Top Gun: Maverick 4K box set includes 4K copies of the original film, the sequel itself, and a host of incredible collectibles. Directed by Joseph Kosinski, Top Gun: Maverick is the highest-grossing movie of 2022 thus far, proving to be a cultural phenomenon on par with the original 1986 film directed by Tony Scott. Both films star Tom Cruise as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, a rebellious Navy pilot tasked with attending the United States Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program, aka Top Gun.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Having had numerous delays since its originally-slotted 2020 release date, Top Gun: Maverick held off throughout the pandemic for a wide theatrical release, seemingly benefiting the sequel tremendously. Top Gun: Maverick is the 5th highest-grossing film of all time (domestically) and the 11th highest-grossing of all time (globally). The film was released on digital platforms on August 23, 2022, and became the No. 1 best-selling digital sell-through title in the U.S. in its first week of release, per Paramount.

Top Gun: Maverick will hit physical media on November 1, 2022, but fans that want a more epic set to add to their collection need only wait one more month. Paramount is rolling out an extraordinary Top Gun 2-Movies 4K Steelbook Superfan Collection that includes the sequel and the original film in steelbook cases, along with assorted collectibles including a leather keyring, magnetic decals, coasters, prints, and dog tags. The set’s unique packaging makes for an unforgettable gift set for anyone, especially during the holiday season. The collection will include digital copies of both films and will be released on December 6, 2022. Check out the full specs and features below:

Top Gun: Maverick continues to be a powerhouse in theaters, even as it’s available on digital platforms, making it a unique anomaly. Typically, a home video release is the next leg of a film’s journey, but Top Gun: Maverick has continued to climb the box office charts despite it. The film will likely be out of theaters by the time the Top Gun Superfan Collection releases, but Paramount may keep it in theaters until 2023. While there are plenty of big new releases on the way to theaters, fans have been returning multiple times to enjoy the film in theaters, which heightens the experience of a movie of that magnitude. Top Gun: Maverick has been praised for saving theaters this summer and has already surpassed the standard 60-day theatrical exhibition window, so there’s simply no telling when it will leave theaters.

There’s a frequent debate over physical vs. digital media, as many have opted to go digital for convenience and to save space. However, proponents of physical media often make the case over being held captive by an internet connection to enjoy a movie at home, which is sometimes a real issue. A decked-out box set, such as the Top Gun Superfan Collection, makes for an enticing draw. Those that typically opt for digital can be swayed by the flashy and beefed-up presentation, particularly for such a fan-favorite film as Top Gun: Maverick, making these types of gift sets a potential savior to physical media, if not just something cool to have on a shelf.
