Cannes Film Fest 2022: Top Gun: Maverick–World Premiere, Tribute to Cruise

Top Gun: Maverick and Tom Cruise at the 75th Festival de Cannes

Tom Cruise will attend the Cannes Fest on May 18, for the showing of Top Gun: Maverick, set for release on May 25 in France, and May 27 in the US.

The Festival will also pay a special tribute to Tom Cruise for his career.

Top Gun hero Maverick, will be back in cinemas all over the world and Tom Cruise will return to the Festival de Cannes where he has made only one appearance before: on May 18, 1992, for Ron Howard’s Far and Away, the closing film of the 45th Festival. That evening, he had awarded the Palme d’or to director Bille August for The Best Intentions.

Exactly thirty years later, on May 18, 2022, the Festival de Cannes will pay him an exceptional tribute for his lifetime achievements. On that special day, Tom Cruise will have an on-stage conversation with journalist Didier Allouch in the afternoon and will walk up the steps of the Palais des Festivals for the evening screening of Top Gun: Maverick, directed by Joseph Kosinski.
