In the original movie, Cruise played the cocky pilot who talked about how he felt the "need for speed." One of the top students in a US training camp for elite military fighter pilots, he engaged in a bitter rivalry with a fellow pilot played by Val Kilmer.
In an interview with Access Hollywood, Cruise revealed last year that "stylistically it's going to be same. We're going to have the same score" from the original composer, Harold Faltermeyer.
"Aviators are back, the need for speed. 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," Cruise had teased.
Top Gun launched Cruise’s career as a global action star and grossed more than $350 million globally, according to film tracker BoxOfficeMojo.
Top Gun: Maverick is scheduled for release on 12 July, 2019.
