Lieutenant Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is an expert aviator for the United States Navy. When he encounters a pair of MiGs over the Persian Gulf, his wingman is clearly overflying and freaks out. Running out of fuel, Maverick can talk him back to the aircraft carrier. When his wingman surrenders his wings, Maverick moves up the rankings and is sent to the Top Gun Naval Flying School. Maverick struggles to become the best pilot and steps on the toes of the other students.
The film won an Academy Award for Best Music in 1987 for the song “Take My Breath Away”, and was directed by Tony Scott. For the sequel, again with Tom Cruise in the lead role, Joseph Kosinski took over the direction. Meanwhile, Top Gun: Maverick is doing so well in theaters that it has already grossed more than a billion dollars, a record for Cruise.
