Not only is it the highest-grossing movie of 2022 so far but it also earned a whopping 96% score on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics praising the film for its emotional story and stunning flying sequences.

If you were one of the many that loved Top Gun: Maverick, or even the original Top Gun, you may also be interested in the upcoming film Devotion as it shares some DNA with the Tom Cruise-led franchise.

Not only is one of Devotion's stars Glen Powell, a scene-stealer in Maverick playing the cocky pilot Hangman, the upcoming movie sees the actor take on the role of another US Navy fighter pilot.

Based on the bestselling book of the same name, the new "aerial war epic" will tell the true story of two US fighter pilots during the Korean War whose "heroic sacrifices would ultimately make them the Navy's most celebrated wingmen".

Powell co-stars in Devotion alongside Jonathan Majors (Da 5 Bloods, Loki), with the film to be directed by J.D. Dillard (Sweetheart).

The movie does not have an Irish release date at this time but will come out in the US on 23 November.

You can check out its latest trailer which dropped this week below.
