Tom Cruise is top gun at Cannes Film Festival

Tom Cruise

When Tom Cruise arrived at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, he was greeted with cheers and clapping.

The Hollywood star was in town to see the long-awaited sequel to the 1986 classic, ‘Top Gun – Maverick.’

Cruise was welcomed by actress Jennifer Connelly and other cast and crew members, as well as a surprise flyover by French fighter jets as an official greeting.

The new film, directed by Joseph Kosinski, explores the mythology of famed US Navy fighter pilot Pete “Maverick” Mitchell as he continues to test new aircraft.

He’s been tasked with preparing a group of young Top Gun graduates for a mission that no pilot could have envisioned.

All genres are welcome

More than Hollywood blockbusters are included at the festival. There is also a widespread acknowledgment of low-budget, independent cinema, much of it from Europe and other parts of the world.

The Belgian production ‘Le Otte Montagne,’ directed by Felix van Groeningen and Charlotte Vandermeersch, is one such film being presented this year.

It is set in the Italian Alps and explores the story of friendship and fate.

Pietro sees the world but Bruno stays true to his mountain. They encounter love and loss, their origins and fates, but most importantly, a lifetime friendship on this trip.

Another is ‘Tchaikovsky’s Wife,’ a stunning picture of the composer’s wife in late-nineteenth-century Russia. The film is expected to win some awards, at least for its brilliant direction.
