Maverick is a reckless ace fighter pilot, living with the ghosts of his famous aviator father and his own penchant for hijinks. Along with his best friend and navigator, Goose, Maverick attends the Navy's elite air combat academy where the two work together to compete for the title of Top Gun against the best of the best Naval aviators.
Breaking rules and convention is his specialty and, true to form, Maverick falls in love with a civilian instructor at the academy. When his best friend, Goose, is killed in training, Maverick must pull himself back from the brink to prove that he can change his ways and become a team player.
Late director Tony Scott reinvented the action movie with his 1986 classic Top Gun, which remained at the top of the box office charts for an unprecedented four months. This romantic thriller ushered in an era of MTV-style filmmaking, with its quick-cuts, non-stop action, and its chart-topping soundtrack loaded with number one hits. Its obvious that Top Gun wouldn't have been half as cool without singles such as 'Danger Zone', 'Take My Breath Away', 'Heaven in Your Eyes', and 'Playing with the Boys' helping to push forth the narrative. In fact, Tom Cruise's career defining hit is as much remembered for these songs as it is anything else.
Fully restored and converted, Top Gun 3D hit IMAX theaters for a one-week limited run last weekend, and now, the Blu-ray has come home to roost. To celebrate this newly immersive release of the ageless classic, we caught up with renowned 80s songsmith Kenny Loggins, who contributed two number one singles to the soundtrack, with the defining song 'Danger Zone' and the party hit 'Playing with the Boys'. Kenny Loggins took us through some of the history of the song, and revealed that it was originally supposed to be preformed by Toto.Read More
