Long overdue too if you ask me.



Skip to 55th second of the video.

So who will be the main enemy? I'm assuming North Korea?

The sequel most definitely needs an awkward volleyball scene!!

I've never understood the "gay" claims about that scene. If it were a bunch of women playing volleyball would it have been lesbian?

I think what did it was the Kenny Loggins song being titled "Playing with the boys". It just gave it that vibe. biggrin

I'll be interesting to see how the develop this. As much as I like them F/A-18E/Fs (and F-35s are flying video games), they are not as sexy as an F-14. If they go for the pilots Vs drone operators... I will seep during the drone scenes.

The volleyball scene was definitely weird, but something for all of the wives and girlfriends that got dragged to the movie. LOL
Like a romantic comedy chick flick that finds a reason for a busty chick in a bikini to show up for the women characters to admit that even they would do her.
Wouldn't it be hilarious though to have the original actors going out there to play, shirtless and out of shape, graying/balding, throwing out backs, hurting knees etc.

Hollywood directors and producers know that would be utterly boring for audiences so I would bet money on the fact that route will not be taken. My guess is they will go with the Super Hornets or the F-35.

Well I don't think Kelly McGillis will be returning for the second one. She hasn't held up well over the years and she switched to the "other team". Not sure she could bring herself to kiss Tommy. I don't think she cares for the attention of her "fans" either.

Wow. Time has not been kind to her. Tom Cruise though I'm convinced has some alien super powers that help him look young.

I've never been into pop music so I never made that connection.

Don't know why the volleyball scene gets so much flack. I remember back in the 80s when I was on a school trip in eighth grade to south Georgia, and when that scene came on the bus television screens, ALL the women on the bus screamed and were absolutely fawning over the men. Mission accomplished, I guess, getting women to watch a badass man's movie. smile

My educated guess is that it will be a 50/50 split between CGI and real practical efffects. The insurance/liability costs now are simply too high for a film to go 100% real.

I loved how the movie Hot Shot's lampooned it. I'll take Flight of the Intruder over it any day.
