Win A Copy Of The Movie That Turned Tom Cruise Into A Top Gun

by Jeremy Kinser May 05, 2016

Top-GunThirty years ago Tom Cruise became a superstar of the first-tier when his adrenaline-fueled action flick Top Gun was released. The film, which chronicles an elite group of pilots competing to be the best in their class and earn the title of “Top Gun,” captured the imagination of a generation and earned a worldwide box office of over $350 million upon its release in 1986. Cruise headlines 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.

Besides establishing Cruise as a top box office draw, Top Gun inspired young people to enlist in the military at a time when recruitment was at an all-time low. Then in 1994 we were forced to reconsider the movies when a young actor-filmmaker named Quentin Tarantino unleashed a torrential monologue on the film’s queer appeal in a costarring role in the 1994 rom-com Sleep With Me and Top Gun‘s legacy was forever changed.

Top Gun will be available as a Limited Edition Blu-ray Combo Steelbook on May 3 and on Digital HD for the first time on May 10. To qualify for a chance to win a copy, simply share your favorite quote from the film in the comments section. We’ll select three winners at random who will be notified by email. The contest ends May 9.

Bring back that lovin’ feeling by watching the trailer below.
