Oh heck yeah! bananadance This is looking like what I was hoping for. I hope it is. They're getting the real inflight footage that is for sure which was the most important thing I think, along with keeping the spirit of the first film and time period. Having the Right Stuff's Ed Harris is great and I'm really intrigued by the idea that Mitchell is an old school hold out content with serving where he's at as a stick and rudder pilot and not keen on certain advents of modern aviation warfare. Tom must be having tons of fun with this one. Just those carrier shots gets me going. Thanks for sharing.

I came here after hearing about the reveal without having seen it yet so thanks Archer for posting. I read an article where Tom said at a Comicon that everything you see is real. Everything certainly does. That being said, was that last Tomcat shot real too!!??!!

Because ADMIRALS DON'T FLY.

I may have to make a road trip to an Imax theater to see this.

reports are that they did indeed use a real Tomcat for some shots.

And an F-18 was photographed going down "Star Wars Canyon" with the pilot wearing Maverick's helmet biggrin

Friends, 'Top Gun' was a bad film. It was 'Iron Eagle' with more volleyball.

'Hot Shots' was less of a parody and more of a sequel to 'Top Gun'. Mediocre, pedestrian pablum.

Top Gun has many many problems. But it is fun. It is super fun. And that is what really matters.

And this makes me feel the need, the need for speed.

I'm going to have to think long and hard deciding whether or not to watch this movie after reading of the despicable treatment Cruise gave the sailors during filming. The film looks interesting, I just don't know if I can separate Cruise from Maverick in my mind.

It wasn't a bad film or we wouldn't still be talking about it 30+ years later, much less getting a sequel. wink
Might not have been "art", as if any big production could be, but it's a beloved flick and entertaining as hell. That's about all I can ask of a movie and puts it well ahead of most.
The military used to have recruiters in the lobby of the movie theater when Top Gun released. That certainly wasn't because people were leaving unhappy.

Yes. Good plain fun and to have another jet movie with real aerial photography is few and far between its seems. I hope that isn't true vocatx. It seems we usually hear the opposite of how decent he is when on set working with a variety of people especially in the technical and stunt fields. The little bit I poked into it, sounds like perhaps some felt put off by maybe some of the filming rules and constraints that are placed on the production to keep things moving and to get things accomplished. I wouldn't doubt that when able, he'd spend some one on one time with crew but when its time to work, they have to be all business and avoid interruptions and get their acting and filming done while on an operational carrier. Both have difficult schedules to work out I imagine. I'm just guessing though.

If murdering logic was a crime, you'd be getting a life sentence!

Getting a sequel doesn't equal "good". Typically sequels are not as good as the original film. Especially after an appreciable amount of time. 30 years is quite a spell I reckon.

Plenty of "big productions" are cinematic art but are not monetarily the biggest winners. Some never make a big box office. But box office does not dictate artistry. Top Gun was never intended to be anything but escapist fun. That it achieved this is undeniable, but to argue that this popularity makes it a good film is tantamount to saying that the goal of cinema is merely finding a common denominator people enjoy and hitting that button hard.

Bud Light is very popular in the world of beer. That does not make it "good". It merely makes it popular.

There's no accounting for taste they say, but the trap is thinking that because you like a thing, that gives it positive qualities in excess of what it is.

Fixed that for ya. thumbsup

Don't mistake art for craft. Or do whatever you want I guess.
To me, craftsmen may collaborate and turn out something with purpose (such as entertainment) that can be artistic and commissioned.
Art is done for art's sake, for expression, from the artist. You don't get that on a movie set, unless it's a little indie film. A production like this isn't, can't be (my opinion) and shouldn't be expected to be, art.
I'd say craftsmen are worth more, they can also be artists on their own time. I'm sure there are many who place more importance on abstract expression than what most people enjoy. The rest of us will had a good time watching Top Gun.
It doesn't make it worth LESS to be pure entertainment and less substance, as long as it's enjoyed for what it is. If it wasn't done well, it wouldn't have been enjoyed.
Maybe there's an indie art film from 1986 that will get a sequel for those inclined towards such projects. I won't hold my breath though.

I do think Val is in it, if his health is ok.
