Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would actually get a Top Gun sequel. The original film came out almost 40 years ago now and pretty much everyone has long since moved on.
That hasn’t stopped Top Gun from being one of the most influential movies of the 1980s. There are still endless Maverick cosplays on Halloween and even as recent as a couple of months ago the film got a shout out in Captain Marvel.
Tom Cruise dropped the trailer at SDCC today and the final result was worth the wait. The cinematography is breathtaking and it really does look like a sequel worthy of such an influential film. Top Gun: Maverick opens in 2020 and there’s zero doubt it is going to be a blockbuster.
