Tom Cruise will reprise his role as Captain Pete Mitchell in the highly anticipated ‘Top Gun: Maverick’, which will hit theaters on May 27 after premiering at the Cannes Festival. The movie is already being praised by critics and it promises to be one of the blockbusters of the summer. 

For Cruise, ‘Top Gun’, released in 1986, was his second lead role after the comedy ‘Risky Business’ (1983). His work as the dangerous but brilliant pilot “Maverick” Mitchell cemented his status as a superstar, before he started taking other critically acclaimed jobs. 

While ‘Top Gun’ received mixed reviews at the time, the movie has always been very popular, especially for its soundtrack (which made it win an Oscar and a Golden Globe) and its action sequences, as well as Cruise and Kelly McGillis chemistry.
