    Elon Musk Praises Original ‘Top Gun’, Expresses Excitement To Watch Tom Cruise’s 2022 Sequel

    Tom Cruise-starrer ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ has proved to be a blockbuster! After a long hiatus, it brought back the audience to the cinema halls when there was a talk of OTT dominating the movie business. While the film is fetching great numbers commercially and garnering critical praise, Elon Musk is excited to watch the sequel to 1986 ‘Top Gun,’ which he claims is great.

    ‘Top Gun Maverick’ was screened at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival this year, and Tom Cruise was honored with the coveted Palme d’Or prize. Currently, the film has a $700 million gross collection and might touch the $1 billion mark.

    On Wednesday, the South African billionaire tweeted that he rewatched the original ‘Top Gun,’ and expressed his excitement to watch the sequel. He tweeted, “Original Top Gun is a great movie. Just rewatched. Looking forward to seeing the sequel.” He expected “amazing flying scenes,” but appreciated the writing. The original film came out in 1986 and starred Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, and Anthony Edwards, among others. The screenplay was inspired by Ehud Yonay’s essay ‘Top Guns.’ 

    Cruise plays a young, brooding Lt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, who gets an offer to teach at US Navy’s Fighter Weapons School in San Diego, California. He meets Radar Intercept Officer Nick “Goose” Bradshaw. Unfortunately, the film did not receive critical acclaim, but it was commercially successful, having a lifetime collection of $357 million.

    Elon Musk will be a part of the Space film that Tom Cruise will be shooting with ‘The Bourne Identity’ director Doug Liman. Reportedly, Universal Pictures agreed to finance $200 million for this project.
