It is the highest-grossing film of 2022, with nearly $1.5 billion in revenue. And he has two rivals who could face him. On the one hand, Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever and, of course, Avatar 2: The Way of Water. The film starring Tom Cruise and directed by Joseph Kosinski, has incredible cinematography with locations that heighten the viewing experience. These are the places where the movie Top Gun 2: Maverick was filmed.
The West Coast of the United States was chosen mainly to shoot the film (one of our favorites of the year) thanks to its combination of beach towns (like San Diego) or national parks with forests, lakes and mountains, in the state of California and, of course, military bases.
Here are the locations where the movie Top Gun Maverick was filmed:
One of the chosen was South Lake Tahoe, in California, a city that has a mountain with a peak of almost 3,050 meters and a lake of the same name, which with its almost 500 meters, becomes one of the deepest lakes in America from the North
Other locations chosen were El Dorado, a national forest of the United States located in the center of the Sierra Nevada, to the east of the state of California and part of the state of Nevada.
Among the military bases, they chose: the Estación Aérea Naval Lemoore or NAS Lemoore and the Naval Air Station Fallon or NAS Fallon, which is the main air-to-air and air-to-ground training facility of the United States Navy.
In relation to the air stations, the city of Lake Tahoe and the airport of Inyokern are selected, the latter was used for the video of the theme Hold My Hand, with the fighter plane P-51 Mustang, in which Tom Cruise worked on his maintenance.
Other places where Top Gun Maverick was filmed are in the cities of Los Angeles and San Diego.
The cinematography of the film was in charge of Claudio Miranda, a Chilean born in the town of Valparaíso, who has already produced works of relevance with titles such as Life of Pi (An Extraordinary Adventure), The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Obivlion, Tron and Tomorrowland, among others.
