Tom Cruise teaches the new school of
daredevil pilots in stomach flipping Top Gun maverick trailer the second Top Gun
maverick trailer offers almost nothing of value that we didn’t get from the
first teaser back in July there’s no real plot no rundown of new characters
and little in the way of thematic content beyond rehashing the greatest
hits moments cruise on a motorcycle a volley game game hot men sans shirts
aerial tricks familiar music etc from the first Top Gun is this cause for
concern or are they just holding their cards until the 3rd and presumably final
trailer later next year the trailer may play well enough on an IMAX screen I’ll
try to find out on Thursday night or Friday morning but it doesn’t exactly
justify another go around and basing your entire marketing campaign on hey
it’s a sequel to that movie you liked 35 years ago is a dangerous game it’s no
secret that I wasn’t exactly in favor of another Top Gun movie and M of the
opinion that we wouldn’t have gotten it had more folks shown up especially in
North America to the likes of edge of tomorrow an American made but c’est la
vie Tom Cruise movies are generally good all due respect to Rock of Ages and the
mummy and while I’m not a big Tron Legacy fan it has its cult oblivion was
pretty good and only the brave was one of the best movies of 2017 so yeah a Tom
Cruise Top Gun movie directed by Joseph Kosinski with Christopher McQuarrie
listed as one of the screenwriters has at least something approaching the
benefit of the doubt with transformers on sabbatical Star Trek in doubt Teenage
Mutant Ninja Turtles gearing up for another reboot alongside more reboots of
Power Rangers Lionsgate released the 2017 flick and whatever is going on with
the GI Joe series Paramount’s big franchises essentially come down to Top
Gun too spongebob and the remaining Mission
Impossible movies as you may recall crews and paramount
parted ways in 2006 after Mission Impossible three made just 397 million
dollars worldwide on a 150 million dollars budget a lower than expected
number blamed on Cruz’s tabloid friendly antics the couch jump the whirlwind
Katie Holmes romance the Scientology commentary his criticism of Brooke
Shields over her depression medications etc it didn’t help that Cruz’s back-end
deal still made him a fortune from the JJ Abrams picture even as the movie
itself struggled to make a profit thus paramount and Cruz mutually agreed
not to renew Paramount’s deal with his production company the divorce was
short-lived as we did get both two acclaimed hugely successful Mission
Impossible movies in 2011 and 2015 along with two less acclaimed less successful
but much less expensive Jack Reacher films in 2012 and 2016
no paramount didn’t fire the actor but it wasn’t a peak moment for the longtime
movie star and while we can debate to what extent Tom Cruise still has it
outside of the Ethan Hunt Mission Impossible movies paramount isn’t
anywhere near as healthy as they were in the mid-2000s
one year after Mission Impossible three they would begin a run of huge
blockbusters transformers Ironman Star Trek How to Train Your Dragon Thor World
War Z Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles etc that would keep them relatively healthy
until 2016 but with their IP dying or dead and audiences no longer showing up
to old fashioned star vehicles and grownup movies paramount needs Tom
Cruise as much as they ever did and yeah with American made merely doing ok The
Mummy killing the dark universe before it could begin and Jack Reacher
stumbling with the second installment it’s at least something of a mutually
beneficial relationship paramount needs cruises Mission Impossible and at least
the potential of a blockbuster Top Gun sequel while cruise needs the franchises
that allow him to maintain the appearance of still being an old-school
a-list movie star but of course that only works if folks actually show up to
Top Gun mouth when it opens on June 26 and it’ll be
just one movie banking on 1980s nostalgia next year
we’ve got Wonder Woman 1984 Bill and Ted face the music and Ghostbusters
afterlife alongside Top Gun maverick just this summer alone and it’s opening
alongside John M choose adaptation of lin-manuel Miranda’s in the heights as
as much a old-school hit versus New Wave event showdown as you could imagine
although you can make the case that Top Gun 2’s nostalgia for morning in America
Top Gun was a prime piece of Reagan era propaganda and a hell of a military
recruitment tool is merely a different era of nostalgia contrasted with the
hope and change era of in the heights a show that opened on Broadway in 2008 we
don’t know how well the 80s throwbacks will perform but relatively speaking and
with differing variables notwithstanding Rambo last blood is not an encouraging
canary in the coalmine will top gun maverick be a pure nostalgia play
sacrificing having anything of value to say about the world of today and/or the
legacy of the original 1986 Tony Scott directed blockbuster or will it offer
meta commentary and/or an update and risk upsetting the fanbase of the
original $376 million grossing movie that gross by the way made Top Gun one
of the biggest earners ever at a time when only Ichi and Star Wars were $500
million plus grocers it’s a delicate needle to thread
although the crews who made American made which dealt with the iran-contra
scandal with a deeply cynical eye and Lions for lambs is presumably up to the
challenge if it works it could be one of the bigger movies of the summer if not
it’ll be Zoolander number 2 all over again
