With the release of Top Gun: Maverick in the UK, now is the ideal moment to revisit the original Top Gun film. In addition, it has Tom Cruise as the same guy, but 36 years younger. The actor shot to fame after starring in this action film, which was 1986’s biggest grossing release.
Cruise and Anthony Edwards’ young pilots Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Cruise) and Nick “Goose” Bradshaw (Anthony Edwards) attended the prestigious US Navy Top Gun pilot training school, where they encountered rivalry, romance, and even tragedy along the way.
