TOP GUN: CURIOSITIES OF THE SUCCESS OF 1986
We review some details of the great success of the eighties that catapulted Tom Cruise to fame.
Released in 1986, the film was the launch to stardom of its protagonist, Tom Cruise.
We have known the actor since then the career he has developed. Before there were other works like ‘Rebeldes’ or ‘Risky Business’.

All this came after the story of Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell, the young aviator in the army, one of the best in the Top Gun school, that boy who falls in love with his instructor and who suffers the tragedy of seeing his best die. friend in combat The second part of ‘Top Gun’ was almost a thorn in Cruise’s part that he had to develop. He was going to show us his great creation in 2020. However, the world was attacked by a pandemic that made theaters have to wait a bit to welcome the general public again and enjoy movies on the big screen. Two years later, specifically on May 26, ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ (one of the most anticipated films of this year) will land in theaters, hoping to welcome hordes of fans in theaters, nostalgic for the first one or not, looking forward to seeing what Cruise has prepared and what he has brought to the character three decades later.
Why pick up this story? For a long time, Cruise had been thinking about making a second part of ‘Top Gun’. The film, without being a great masterpiece, was a great success and has become a cult title of that decade. A story with many buts that today is an eighties emblem. That is why its protagonist deserved a continuation, and above all the fans.
There are still a couple of installments of ‘Mission Impossible’ to go, and who knows what other projects this movie star who will turn 60 in July has. He has passed through Cannes showing the film, which has been applauded by the public. The reviews have turned out to be very favourable. Now all that remains is for the public to accept it as expected.
While we wait for the premiere to arrive next week, let’s review some of the curiosities of the predecessor film of the eighties.
What other actors could have been Maverick?
It’s hard to think of a ‘Top Gun’ story without Cruise, but he wasn’t the only contender for the role. Racing to get on the plane were actors like Sean Penn, Matthew Modine, Patrick Swayze, Emilio Estevez, Nicolas Cage, John Cusack, Matthew Broderick, Michael J. Fox and Tom Hanks.
Were there other possible directors for TOP GUN?
John Carpenter and David Cronenberg, two filmmakers with a very particular style, vied to direct before Tony Scott (Ridley’s brother) finally signed on. With a previous title, (‘The Hunger’) he was hired to direct in part due to his experience in the advertising world. The style of ‘Top Gun’ is closely related to what the ads do: sell a concept, an idea, and to be able to be as attractive as possible with people.
We want more romance!
The romantic scene in the elevator, or rather, the scene in which sparks flew and the characters of Charlie and Maverick crossed the screen, was recorded after the film passed the public tests and they demanded more moments of romance. Kelly McGillis had actually cut and dyed her hair darker for another movie, hence she was wearing a cap in the scene and the bedroom scene was just silhouetted.
And more Tom shirtless!
Sex myth status has to be earned, so the film required the occasional shirtless moment: The locker room and volleyball scenes where Maverick and his pals are topless were added later, so Tom Cruise could show and show off your body for your fans.
McGillis’ height (1’78) compared to Cruise’s (1’70) was apparently a problem for the studio. The actress was asked to perform barefoot after she expressed concern about her height difference.
