It’s undeniable that the theatrical movie-going experience is more robust than ever, and we are thrilled with the results of Top Gun: Maverick in Australia. This film is a multigenerational must-see event, drawing both fans of the original, who have seen it several times, as well as younger audiences who have embraced the film and are sharing their love with everyone around them. The sky is definitely not the limit for this movie…”.
