In 1986, Top Gun was a blockbuster hit thanks to its combination of breathtaking action, music, and aerial photography. Top Gun looks at the dangers and excitement awaiting every student at the Navy’s prestigious fighter weapons school.

The American movie Top Gun was directed by Tony Scott and produced by Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer in 1986. Jim Cash and Jack Epps wrote the screenplay based on a California magazine article titled “Top Guns” three years earlier. Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis star in the film, along with Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, and Tom Skerritt. As Lieutenant Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, Cruise plays a young naval aviator assigned to the Enterprise’s aircraft carrier. A US Navy Fighter Weapons School at Naval Air Station Miramar in San Diego, California, gives him and his Radar Intercept Officer (Edwards) an opportunity to train.

May 16, 1986, was the release date of the movie Top Gun. As soon as it was released, film critics have generally given the film mixed reviews, and critics also praised the action sequences, the effects, the aerial stunts, and Cruise and McGillis’ acting performances. A soundtrack composed for the movie has also become one of the most popular movie soundtracks to date, and the film earned an Academy Award for best original song.

Six months would pass before its theater count dropped below that of its opening week, but within days the film was a success and it became the highest-grossing film of 1986. According to John Davis (the producer of the movie), the navy used Top Gun as a recruiting video, and after watching the film, people said,” wow! I want to be a pilot.” Several theaters in some regions had Navy recruitment booths to attract enthusiastic patrons to the Navy recruitment video.
