Top Gun was one of the most commercially successful movies and soundtracks of the 80s.  It was the #1 box office film of 1986, and the soundtrack has now gone 9 times platinum, with over 9 million copies sold.  It has also been chosen by the Library of Congress to be preserved in the National Film Registry.

The highly anticipated sequel, Top Gun: Maverick, originally set for a summer 2019 release, has been delayed for two years to “allow production to work out all the complex flight sequences,” and the COVID-19 pandemic.  It is set to be released nationwide this Friday, May 27th.

Listen to 96.3 KKLZ each weekday (05/23/22-05/27/22) at 6:40am with the Mike & Carla Morning Show, 1:40pm with Wendy Rush on the Midday show, and at 4:10pm on “Martino’s Mystery Melody” to win two free tickets to see Top Gun: Maverick in the Brendan Theaters at the newly reopened Palms Casino Resort.  Here’s the trailer for the sequel.
