Top Gun was an essential part of a string of 1980’s blockbusters which launched Cruise’s successful film career. The film focused on a Naval Fighter school where the best pilots go to sharpen their flying skills. Cruise plays Maverick, a cocky and, at times, reckless hotshot pilot who is competing against other pilots like Iceman (Val Kilmer) to prove he is the best. The film also stars Anthony Edwards as Goose and Kelly McGillis as Charlotte.
The film also was accompanied by an awesome soundtrack including hits like Kenny Loggins’ Danger Zone, and Berlin’s Take My Breath Away.
As of now, no further details are known about the sequel however, we will bring you more information and news regarding the Top Gun 2 film as it becomes available.
