Does the Navy even use human-piloted fighter jets for combat anymore? Isn't it all drone strikes now? Is this movie going to be two hours of Tom Cruise sitting behind a joystick watching a screen?

My guess is that Cruise will play the role of the commanding officer of Top Gun, aka Fighter Weapons School. This was Tom Skerrit's role as "Viper" in the first movie. I doubt however that Kelly McGillis will reprise her role, she looks old and overweight today, and her career pretty much imploded two decades ago.

Of course, the F-14's are gone, in favor of the F-18, perhaps even some stealthy F-35C's. The difference being, that unless they cheap out, the movie-makers could hire some real Russian pilots and planes as the opposition, versus using American-made F-5's as in the first movie. It would be interesting to see the F-18 or F-35C versus the MIG-31, SU-57, etc. Failing in that, the USA bought 21 MIG-29's from Muldova when that tiny former Soviet state went broke.

In the mean time, Kelly can continue to work in Hollywood as a sub in for Sharon Gless if they decide to make a movie version of Cagney & Lacey. (warning, not so flattering image ahead) Kelly now.

We don't even know what the plot is. Plus, he was already in the original. It's like criticizing Edward James Olmos for appearing in Blade Runner 2049 before the story line is revealed.

^ For all we know, Val may have 3 seconds cameo of saying, "Use your force, Maverick."

He had something to do with one of the worst Batman movies of all time so anything would be higher standard than that.

Ya I remember when VAL was very friendly and outgoing (REAL GENIUS (1985)) -- I have tried to be friends and email him but he doesnt reply and its sad

I wanted to tell him I love his movie and hope he would be friends and all.....


He is all over twitter,etc.... So you think he still is but I guess not


It would be exciting for me to get an email from him

LOL. It's Harold Faltermeyer's "Top Gun Anthem," which is used in that trailer.

My meatspace pal works for Airbus and Tom Cruise dropped a chopper of theirs preparing for Mission Impossible so he may actually be in the seat of a jet here. Joseph Kosinski has three really solid movies under his belt, two with great audio and visual strength so I want to remain hopeful for a massive audio assault and a lot of cool jet sequences.
