It might have taken 36 years, but the “Prime Gun” sequel, “Prime Gun: Maverick,” last but not least landed in theaters in Might, bringing Tom Cruise’s iconic character again to the significant screen. The movie’s designed above a billion pounds at the around the world box business office, so it is really clearly been a money achievements. Incorporate to that the fact that it at this time has a 97 p.c new ranking on Rotten Tomatoes, and we come to feel assured in contacting the motion picture a whole achievements. The sequel was a lengthy time coming, but it was truly worth the wait around. Now the dilemma is, will we have to hold out an additional 3 decades for “Major Gun 3”?

Sad to say, there is no “Best Gun 3” at this time slated, but that won’t necessarily mean it won’t transpire. Thinking of the results of the first film in 1986 and the sequel this 12 months, it would pretty much appear to be silly to not revisit the “Prime Gun” storyline for a 3rd movie. And 1 of the film’s stars, Miles Teller, agrees. He instructed Entertainment Tonight about a doable sequel, “That would be wonderful, but which is all up to TC.” He extra, “It’s all up to Tom. I’ve been getting some discussions with him about it. We are going to see.”

“For him to share ‘Top Gun’ with me and a great deal of these other youthful actors it truly is just been these kinds of a wild trip, and it is nonetheless going,” Teller spelled out to ET. He also joked about “Top Gun: Maverick”‘s massive box office environment haul, indicating, “That is surely what my group has been stating for these long term negotiations.”

“Best Gun: Maverick” won’t always depart numerous loose ends hanging that would segue into a new tale, but the magnificence of Hollywood is that you can make a story out of anything at all — and Cruise’s Maverick certainly has additional story to convey to. In “Leading Gun: Maverick,” Maverick’s back in action training a new course of pilots, but by the finish of the movie — and adhering to a productive large-flying mission — Maverick and Penny (Jennifer Connelly) go on their merry way, at which level it unquestionably feels like he is hung up his wings for good. But that might not be the case if “Leading Gun 3” comes about!

Cruise at first explained back in 1990 that he was not down for generating any sequels to “Leading Gun” mainly because of how the movie was received. He informed Playboy, in accordance to Gizmodo, “Alright, some folks felt that ‘Top Gun’ was a appropriate-wing film to boost the Navy. And a ton of young children liked it. But I want the kids to know that that’s not the way war is — that ‘Top Gun’ was just an amusement park experience, a pleasurable movie with a PG-13 score that was not intended to be reality. That is why I didn’t go on and make ‘Top Gun II’ and ‘III’ and ‘IV’ and ‘V.’ That would have been irresponsible.”

He is obviously had a transform of coronary heart around the decades, so considering the success of “Prime Gun: Maverick,” Skydance (the studio driving the films) could surely choose to fee a third movie — if Cruise is on board, that is. This globe won’t exist devoid of him and his character, after all. Only time will convey to if the film will materialize.
