The long-awaited sequel to the Tom Cruise classic'Top Gun has finally landed an official release date

Tom earlier said that the title for the second film would be Top Gun: Maverick although Paramount Studios listed the title on Friday only as Top Gun.

In May, the 54-year-old-actor confirmed that a sequel to the 1986 classic "Top Gun" is happening and might start filming "probably in the next year".

In the movie, Tom plays a cocky aspiring pilot who falls in love with the handsome instructor Charlie Blackwood, played by McGillis.

Most of the film's allure comes from the abundant, arguably unintended homoerotic subtext of the movie, which centers on the titular class of ace air-force pilots who go head-to-head to be called the very best in the American sky.

Watson and Konta on fire as they make some history
Watson , who goes into Wimbledon as a wildcard entry, will now face former world No1 Caroline Wozniacki in the last four. Rain earlier in the week required players to play two matches today to get the schedule back on track.

Top Gun: Maverick is set for a July 12, 2019 release date. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer previously outlined that the film will deal with the rise of unmanned drones and pilots becoming a thing of the past. Though no word on if we'll get an updated version of Berlin's Take My Breath Away.

"Top Gun 2" will be titled Top Gun: Maverick. It's going to be a competition film, like the first one ... but a progression for Maverick'. July 12, 2019. So only an entire year to wait. Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is set to helm the project.

The original Top Gun, which also starred Val Kilmer, Kelly McGillis, Meg Ryan and Anthony Edwards, received mixed reviews but was a huge commercial hit. That puts it in theaters a week after the planned sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.
