Top Gun 2 – I Feel The Need, The Need For A Sequel
He’s back, Maverick is back on our screens for 2020. Call it what you will; Top Gun 2, Top Gun 2020 or use the official title of Top Gun Maverick
All the years down the line, he’s still in the service, but he’s now an instructor. He’s teaching the best of the best including ( surprise, surprise ) Bradley, the son of his former navigator Goose. He’s reached the rank of captain, where his commanding officer suggests he should be a 2-star admiral, indicating his attitude hasn’t changed much over the 30+ years.
Who can forget the original which showed great flying stunts and the added touch of romance along the way.
Top Gun Maverick Trailer
Long-awaited it’s been released and you can watch this here;
What can we expect to see? Cruise on a motorcycle, Cruise playing volleyball, Cruise flying fighter jets and naturally Cruise being his usual ambivalent maverick self. Those are the definites, the probables will be Cruise leading his squadron into battle to save the rest of the Western world. Ed Harris is his usual solid self as the military top brass and Jennifer Connelly adds the female temptation in the movie. Bradley is played by Miles Teller and although we don’t see the original Goose, we do see IceMan returning, played again by Val Kilmer.
Hey, if you’ve been living under the rock the past third of a century, you can watch the original here on Amazon.
Love him or loathe him as an actor ( see the Reacher post here ) Top Gun was an iconic movie which along with Risky Business really got Tom Cruise recognized. This is the movie that suits him, he is who he is, playing this type of role.

With a scheduled 26 June 2020 (USA ) release date, this is going to be a popular sequel for sure. The film also reunites Cruise with the director Joseph Kosinski, who he worked alongside with in Oblivion in 2013. With 3 powerhouse production companies behind this, Jerry Bruckheimer Films, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media you know this will be an impressive offering.
Will the soundtrack be as good as the original? We’ll find out in 11 months from now.
Top Gun Maverick Facts
He’s known for doing his own stunts and making the action scenes as real as possible, but this time he’s been grounded. The US military don’t allow civilians to fly in their fast jets, such as the F18. Not matter how much he wanted to do so, he’s not been permitted to do so. None the less, the flying scenes will no doubt be as realistic and as enthralling as the original movie.
