Had to post this one for the 80’s nostalgists. Tom Cruise is bringing it back, with his Maverick character for Top Gun: Maverick in 2020. Judging from the trailer, it looks like they are not flinching from their past but rather wearing it like a badge of honour with many nods to the first film, like trying to outrace a plane on a motorcycle. Why? The need for speed. Plus, singing with your crew, and high-fiving, and not wearing your shirt and also acting like a tough guy.
However, dismissing the original Top Gun (1986) as a silly movie is one thing, but you cannot deny its influence on movies and pop culture. We even dropped “Danger Zone” on Cottage Country Vol . 20 for our “drive-up” series.
