Pretend your favorite director just announced their new movie is about to be released. And you can’t wait for it! Alas, though, work gets in the way and you have no time to catch a theater show. What are you going to do?
Thankfully, streaming services make it easy (and cheaper) than ever before. We’ve compiled a list of how you can watch Top Gun: Maverick without even leaving the house.
Digital Download and DVD
There are two ways you can watch Top Gun: Maverick from home. First, you can buy the DVD from retailers such as Walmart and Target. Second, if your movie streaming service offers it, you can purchase it through digital download platforms like iTunes or Amazon Prime Video. But if those options don’t work for you, the good news is that the film will be available to stream on demand on FandangoNOW when it premieres in theaters on July 12th!
