Top Gun: Maverick Memorial Day Launch, International Tensions Reinforce Relevant and Timely Themes of Aircraft Carrier: Guardian of the Seas

Top Gun: Maverick will be launching on Memorial Day weekend and is already poised to become one of Hollywood’s largest blockbusters in years. In addition, recent world events have reinforced the critical need for a strong national defense, and served as an important reminder of the necessary role that the military plays in providing for our collective peace and security. As such, we thought it timely to thank all of those theaters that have successfully run Aircraft Carrier: Guardian of the Seas to date, and to encourage those who have not to consider it for a run in the months and years ahead.

“The central themes of Aircraft Carrier are that ‘we should all sail together and come home safely’ and that ‘we cannot wage another world war as the next war is unwinnable,’” noted Stephen Low, director. “Given the world events that have transpired over the past several months, these themes are more relevant now than ever, and the film provides key insights for museum audiences into how important it is that the world’s political and military leaders work together to advance these existential goals.”

Aircraft Carrier is an inspiring film that showcases the incredible people and technology of today’s Navy. The film highlights the diversity of the servicemen and women who work tirelessly on these vessels and the pride and dedication of their families back home. A favorite scene is seeing how the aircraft catapult works to launch and then catch the jets as they take off and land from the deck. Our guests love this film!” said Jackie Mollet, Managing Director of the Saint Louis Science Center.

For more fun and excitement, Science Spectrum, which will be opening the film for a full summer run beginning Memorial Day weekend, follows up Hollywood with an invitation to see the real top guns – “After you’ve seen Hollywood, now come see the real Top Guns, Aircraft Carrier: Guardian of the Seas, said Sandy Henry, President of Science Spectrum.

Aircraft Carrier is a large-format, immersive film packed with adrenaline-laced visuals and human stories that pay stirring tribute to the crucial role modern aircraft carriers play in maintaining the freedom of the seas, and keeping the sea lanes open for commerce.
