‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Gets Summer 2019 Release Date, ‘Tron Legacy’ director

Top Gun is one of the most popular guilty pleasures for moviegoers as ladies like the half-dressed men, some like the romance and men love the action. Some admit that the film is sub-par at best, but now Paramount appears to have set a sequel to Tony Scott‘s Top Gun.

Top Gun: Maverick, an unwanted sequel that looks to reunite stars Val Kilmer and Tom Cruise in their original roles with Tron: Legacy and Oblivion helmer Joseph Kosinski attached as director.

“Excited to make it official. Joe Kosinski is on board to direct. And Top Gun is coming to theaters July 12, 2019. ” tweeted producer Jerry Bruckheimer.


Collider noted on the original that “Most of the film’s allure comes from the abundant, arguably unintended homoerotic subtext of the movie, which centers on the titular class of ace air-force pilots who go head-to-head to be called the very best in the American sky. On the face of all of this, however, the movie is simply about how Maverick must realize his unique greatness and alpha-male bonafides to truly get over the death of his father, his best friend, and the cutting criticisms of his mentors, and become the best pilot that ever did live.”

Cruise got his wish with the title, stating that he didn’t want the new film to have a number in the title. “I didn’t want a number,” he said. “You don’t need a number.”

Cruise reassures audiences that “stylistically, it’s going to be the same” and notes that Harold Faltermeyer will return to write the score.

“Aviators are back, the need for speed,” he recently told Access Hollywood. “We’re going to have big, fast machines. It’s going to be a competition film, like the first one … but a progression for Maverick.”

Top Gun: Maverick will arrive in theaters on July 12th, 2019
