Next week, the classic Top Gun will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its theatrical release on May 16, 1986. You can take part in the celebration a week early, with the 30th Anniversary Blu-ray edition of director Tony Scott's blockbuster, which made Tom Cruise a household name and propelled him to stardom. This 30th Anniversary Blu-ray Steelbook combo pack debuted last week, and with the Digital HD arriving today, May 10, we have a contest where you can bring this Blu-ray home.
The story of an elite group of pilots competing to be the best in their class and earn the title of Top Gun captured the imagination of moviegoers upon its release on May 16, 1986, ultimately earning a worldwide box office of over $350 million. Tom Cruise is superb as the cocky but talented pilot Maverick and Kelly McGillis sizzles as the civilian instructor who teaches him a few things you can't learn in a classroom. Featuring a sensational soundtrack with unforgettable songs including Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" and Kenny Loggins' "Danger Zone," the film also stars Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards and Meg Ryan.
An ideal Father's Day gift, the Top Gun 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Blu-ray Combo Steelbook presents the film with pristine high definition picture and sparkling sound. The Blu-ray Combo Pack includes Danger Zone: The Making of Top Gun, a behind-the-scenes featurette, a survival training featurette, interviews with Tom Cruise, four music videos, commentary by producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Tony Scott, co-screenwriter Jack Epps, Jr. and naval experts, a look inside the real Top Gun, Multi-Angle Storyboards with optional commentary by Tony Scott, and more.
The new interviews with Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer were recorded earlier this year, which also tease "what may lie ahead for Maverick," according to press notes. Paramount has been developing Top Gun 2 for several years, with Tom Cruise expected to reprise his role as Maverick, and Jerry Bruckheimer returning to produce. Back in January, Jerry Bruckheimer shared a photo with Tom Cruise during a meeting for Top Gun 2, teasing that this sequel may get off the ground, but nothing has been confirmed quite yet. The Jungle Book writer Justin Marks came aboard in 2014 to write the script, but the project doesn't have a director attached.
Tom Cruise also revealed that he wanted to figure out a way to work with the Department of Defense to feature real jets, with no CGI. Whether or not this will happen remains unclear, but Val Kilmer teased last year that he was offered a role in the sequel. Aside from Tom Cruise, and possibly Val Kilmer, it isn't known if any of the other Top Gun stars will return for Top Gun 2. While we wait for more details about this sequel, these Top Gun Blu-ray's will be gone in a heartbeat, so what are you waiting for? You're just a few clicks away from taking home this 30-year-old blockbuster to add to your collection. HERE'S HOW TO WIN!
