Just noticed iTunes has just put up a release date for Top Gun Maverick
Not sure if accurate as means it’s just a bit over 2 weeks away. Might be an earlier digital release with physical discs next month

Where are you seeing that as the UK store listing has no date attached to it from what I can see?
Also 7th is a Wednesday which is a tad unusual as usually new listings go live on Mondays.
Pre-order section on the AppleTV app…

Surely won’t be £13.99 to rent from 7th?! 😳
Nah I’m thinking that maybe it could arrive on the 22nd and then available to rent from the 7th.
Either that or it’s just a mistake considering it doesn’t seem to be currently showing that info elsewhere.

2 week rental windows for the big stuff seems increasingly common.

I am going to 4K Blu Ray this one though, fo sho

Indeed, I think you can get away this some of these movies streaming them and watching on a tv, but I have noticed that once you put them up on a projector you seem notice the quality drop in the content.

I used to be a fanatical collector. I can remember being heavily involved in the Blu v HD DVD war, siding with blu, but making the point that we would always back physical media.

Then, over the years, I didn't really care. Good 4k streaming was enough, particularly with 'only' Sonos surround. So, I was happy with D+ for the Marvel/Star Wars etc and bought tentpole stuff on Apple TV.

BUT, for Maverick, it will join my meagre collection of 4K Blu Rays, because it is absolutely a must have.

Streaming is all well and good, there is obviously a huge market out there for it but I still can’t bring myself to pay for just a licence to stream something, I want tgst physical item on my shelf but I am certainly being a lot more picky now than I was say 10 years ago but this will be a day one purchase without a doubt.

Now a bigger movie than Black Panther, can it pass Ultron?
If you can believe it, you can achieve it!
 
Back from third viewing. As soon as the top gun music kicks in...tu nu nu#

The 17 year old absolutely loved it. Said it was the best movie he'd ever seen in the cinema! The flying, the stunts were the things that impressed. I said because there was no CGI the action is alive and visceral. He agreed. He had a big grin, just like me when I first saw it. He wants to see it again.
I told him to take his mates to watch it.

It was marketed at the 35+ crowd but this just shows TGM would smash it with the teenage marvel crowd too. Anyone would appreciate the cinematography, visceral action and taut end to end running time.
