The Cast of ‘Top Gun,’ Then and Now
Ever since the first trailer dropped, it was clear the long-awaited sequel to
1986’s high-flying classic
would tug at the heart strings
with nostalgic imagery emulating the first film.
From the blood-pumping aerial combat maneuvers to shirtless volleyball games,
Top Gun: Maverick
follows in the footsteps of the Tony Scott-directed original,
which took home a worldwide gross of $356 million according to
Box Office Mojo
The original film featured a cast of popular actors whose careers would mostly blossom in the years after release,
will always be remembered as the film that turned Tom Cruise
from teenage heartthrob to true leading man, one death-defying scene at a time.
