Maverick, the film that made Cannes nostalgic for 1986

Can a simple entertainment film that had been in the drawer for two years literally stop a festival? If this film is called Top Gun: Maverick, Tom Cruise may have it and the festival itself will program the less media-friendly films of the competition that day. THE blockbuster in question is at Cannes out of competition, but it is the title that has made the most promotional noise – on the Croisette there are giant posters, an LED screen with images of Cruise, the actor who occupied the second largest room in the Palace for a meeting with the public. Audience-friendly hysteria Cannes which always glorifies Hollywood heroes, as George Clooney and Brad Pitt often do. This year, Tom Hanks, producer and actor in Elvisby Baz Luhrman.
