LIGHTNING STRIKES: A JERRY BRUCKHEIMER RETROSPECTIVE
Double Feature! 70mm Prints!
TOP GUN / DAYS OF THUNDER
TOP GUN
1986, Paramount, 110 min, USA, Dir: Tony Scott

Tom Cruise’s cocky novice pilot must grow up and hone his chops as a fighter ace while wooing flight instructor Kelly McGillis and bumping heads with hard-as-nails rival Val Kilmer. The first of several megawatt collaborations between Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott, TOP GUN was the perfect American action film for the 1980s. With Anthony Edwards and Tom Skerritt.


DAYS OF THUNDER
1990, Paramount, 107 min, USA, Dir: Tony Scott

Do you feel the need for speed? The TOP GUN team of producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, director Tony Scott and star Tom Cruise reunited for this high-octane drama set in the world of auto racing. Cruise plays a hot-shot rookie recruited to drive for a NASCAR team under the tutelage of Robert Duvall; Nicole Kidman plays a doctor who falls in love with the young racer after a crash (the sparks flew in real life as well - Cruise and Kidman married shortly after the film premiered). Robert Towne penned the screenplay to this huge hit, which also features Michael Rooker, Randy Quaid, and Cary Elwes.
