ICYMI, Cruise, and Kilmer are reprising their roles from their iconic 1986 movie, Top Gun. Cruise recently revealed that he insisted Kilmer be in the sequel after overcoming throat cancer.
This month, the Top Gun duo are "back together again" on the big screen.
This role will be a huge milestone for Kilmer, who has been surviving a grueling battle with throat cancer for the last seven years.
"I can't speak without plugging this hole [in his throat]. You have to make the choice to breathe or to eat," he said. "It's an obstacle that is very present with whoever sees me."
"It means a lot to my dad as he's very proud of that film. This is what he loves to do," she said.
"It was trippy and very special for my dad to be on set with all of his friends who made this movie when they were my age," she said.
"I really rallied hard for him to make the movie," Cruise told Entertainment Tonight. "The kind of talent that he has, and you see that scene, it's very special, it's just very special."
"He said, 'We have to have Val, we have to have him back. We have to have him in the film,'" Bruckheimer explained. "And he was the driving force. We all wanted him, but Tom was really adamant that if he's going to make another Top Gun, Val had to be in it."
"It was a really emotional experience for all of us. It was a long time getting there, but we did," he added.
