It might have taken 36 years, however the “Top Gun” sequel, “Top Gun: Maverick,” lastly landed in theaters in Might, bringing Tom Cruise‘s iconic character again to the massive display. The film’s revamped a billion {dollars} on the worldwide field workplace, so it is clearly been a monetary success. Add to that the truth that it presently has a 97 p.c recent ranking on Rotten Tomatoes, and we really feel assured in calling the film a complete success. The sequel was a very long time coming, but it surely was well worth the wait. Now the query is, will we’ve got to attend one other three a long time for “Prime Gun 3”?

Sadly, there is no “Prime Gun 3” presently slated, however that does not imply it will not occur. Contemplating the success of the unique film in 1986 and the sequel this yr, it will nearly appear foolish to not revisit the “Prime Gun” storyline for a 3rd movie. And one of many movie’s stars, Miles Teller, agrees. He informed Entertainment Tonight a couple of doable sequel, “That might be nice, however that is all as much as TC.” He added, “It is all as much as Tom. I have been having some conversations with him about it. We’ll see.”

“For him to share ‘Prime Gun’ with me and lots of these different younger actors it is simply been such a wild trip, and it is nonetheless going,” Teller defined to ET. He additionally joked about “Prime Gun: Maverick”‘s large field workplace haul, saying, “That is positively what my group has been saying for these future negotiations.”

“Prime Gun: Maverick” does not essentially go away many unfastened ends hanging that might segue into a brand new story, however the great thing about Hollywood is which you could make a narrative out of something — and Cruise’s Maverick positively has extra story to inform. In “Prime Gun: Maverick,” Maverick’s again in motion training a new class of pilots, however by the top of the movie — and following a profitable high-flying mission — Maverick and Penny (Jennifer Connelly) go on their merry means, at which level it positively appears like he is hung up his wings for good. However that might not be the case if “Prime Gun 3” occurs!

Cruise initially mentioned again in 1990 that he wasn’t down for making any sequels to “Prime Gun” due to how the film was obtained. He informed Playboy, in keeping with Gizmodo, “OK, some individuals felt that ‘Prime Gun’ was a right-wing movie to advertise the Navy. And lots of youngsters beloved it. However I need the youngsters to know that that is not the best way battle is — that ‘Prime Gun’ was simply an amusement park trip, a enjoyable movie with a PG-13 ranking that was not purported to be actuality. That is why I did not go on and make ‘Prime Gun II’ and ‘III’ and ‘IV’ and ‘V.’ That might have been irresponsible.”

He is clearly had a change of coronary heart over time, so contemplating the success of “Prime Gun: Maverick,” Skydance (the studio behind the movies) might positively determine to fee a 3rd film — if Cruise is on board, that’s. This world does not exist with out him and his character, in any case. Solely time will inform if the film will occur.
