Top Gun has been released many times on home video. Before the 4K release, Paramount released it on Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, part of a Blu-ray collection of Tom Cruise films, and then a Steelbook Blu-ray edition for the film’s 30th anniversary. The 3D edition was fun, and while the different Blu-ray editions did not vary all that much in quality, the 4K UHD edition released earlier this year timed to the original planned release of the movie sequel (which was delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic) is wonderful. This nice looking 4K Steelbook edition, with fine artwork, repeats the contents of the earlier 4K release, but the Steelbook casing is a handsome step up if you are a collector of such things.

"Kilmer was reported to have only appeared due to contractual obligations."

Ironic, given the rumours that he was said to be quite miffed (disappointed?) not to have initially been asked to participate in the sequel, and then lobbied hard for a part. Then again, Top Gun was probably the biggest movie he ever appeared in?

"Batman Forever" was very big as well, and he got the lead role there, not a supporting part, so in theory, it should "count" more for him than "Top Gun" does.

That said, "TG" was more of a cultural phenomenon than "BF" was, and it remains more loved than the 1995 Batman flick, I think.

Seems like most people don't look back on Kilmer's one Batman movie with a lot of fondness!
