Who hasn’t loved Tom Cruise’s movies? Many were even lucky enough to see him in one of his first films, which was Top Gun. This movie was released in the decade of the 80s, having Tom Cruise as one of the main protagonists, playing the role of the young pilot called “Maverick”, along with Kelly McGillis, who played the role of instructor. Without a doubt, that movie was probably the one that launched the actor to fame, and even his role as Maverick placed him on the list of the sexiest actors in Hollywood.

Behind this famous movie, came innumerable films starring him. Now, after several decades, Maverick reappears with everything and guess what, he is reincarnated again by the movie star who had already done it several years ago, who precisely rose to fame with said role. But with more years on him and defying the passage of time, Tom Cruise appears in “Top Gun: Maverick”, a film that will be released in 2020. At some point it was considered to call the film “Top Gun 2”, but apparently not was approved, so it stayed with the name we mentioned earlier.

To get an idea of ​​how much time has passed, the American actor was only 24 years old when Top Gun was released in theaters on May 12, 1986. But 32 years later, Tom Cruise doesn’t seem to have changed. much over time, as the photos taken of the actor have shown on the set of the movie “Top Gun: Maverick” in San Diego, California.

It can be said that Top Gun is quite a challenge for Tom Cruise, since today the movie star is 56 years old, and not only that, but he will reprise his role as LT Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell. Even in this second part he has filmed some scenes on a motorcycle, which is what has characterized his character at all times. In relation to that point, the motorcycle that Cruise has chosen for the film is a Kawasaki brand, Ninja H2 Carbon model. It is a limited edition, since only 120 units have been manufactured and they cost USD 30,000 each. This motorcycle is considered one of the fastest on the market.

In this new movie, Maverick appears as an instructor at the Combat Weapons School in Miramar, California, which is known as Top Gun. Under his charge will be the young son of Goose (Miles Teller), who will show a rebellious and daring character. The film will also show the changes that aviation has undergone, drones and fifth-generation fighter planes will be shown, with which close air combat will be carried out, like the ones we saw in the first part. As is known, the original film was a box office success and placed Cruise in a place among the great stars of Hollywood. In the first part, apart from Cruise, the actress Kelly McGillis appeared, which we already mentioned before, as well as actors such as Anthony Edwards, Meg Ryan and Val Kilmer. By the way, Val Kilmer will reprise his role as Tom “Iceman” Kazansky in this sequel. The actor was going through a delicate situation, as he recently battled throat cancer.

In principle, the second part of Top Gun was already planned to be released a few years ago, but the original director, Tony Scott, who was once again in charge of the new movie, unfortunately took his own life in 2012.

The movie Top Gun: Maverick is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 26, 2020, although it was originally scheduled to be released in 2019. But at Paramount Pictures they consider it to be one of their most valuable projects, so they prefer not to rush the development of the film, what’s more, they decided to postpone the premiere of it one more year. According to what was mentioned by The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount’s desire is for the film to come out as well as possible, since that was the main reason why it was decided to delay the release of the film. In the film there are certain risk scenes, because for that reason, the production company considered that it is necessary to give the actors more time in their flight training.

Actors Miles Teller, Glen Powell, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm and Ed Harris are some of those who will accompany Cruise in this project that, two years before its premiere, is already generating great expectations. On the other hand, the direction of the film will be under the orders of the director Joseph Kosinski, who has also made films such as: ‘Tron: Legacy’, ‘Oblivion’ and ‘Heroes in Hell’.

Regarding the synopsis of the film, the director stated the following: “It’s a different world now, so you can’t remake the first film. It has to adapt. The Navy is very different now than it was in 1986. Back then, they hadn’t been in any wars for 15 or 20 years at that point. Now, here in 2017, the Navy has been at war for 20 years.” However, what the filmmaker already anticipates to the fans is that they will find actions very similar to those of the first film.
