This film should not be made until DADT is officially repealed.

I don't think I need to explain why.

If the sequel does come to pass, I'll only be watching it for the aircraft (and silently fuming when they inevitably get something wrong). tongue

Honestly, this doesn't bother me at all. I hope it's good, though I found the first one a bit... meh.

The important question is "Will Kenny Loggins be on the soundtrack?"

If not, bah.

Since there doesn't appear to be any other threads, time for seven-year-old necromancy. Top Gun 2 scheduled for 2019.

2 things:

1) What's "DADT"?

2) Can we please change the title of this thread to Top Gun: Maverick since that's what it'll be called and because I really don't like that "aka" bit?

To expand on [up][up] a little bit, DADT was somewhat of a compromise policy regarding homosexuals in the military, enacted during the Clinton presidency. The official policy meant that you couldn't ask if someone was a homosexual ("Don't Ask"), and if someone was they weren't to talk about it ("Don't Tell").

Discussions of the policy and/or its actual implementation are waaaaaay off-topic for this thread, however.

Mainly a gag referencing how Top Gun has a reputation for being unintentionally homoerotic.

[up][up]Not to mention really out of date.

Here is an article about the movie's new trailer.

Here is the Comic-Con trailer:

It is set for 2020 now.

So the big question is: will it be as good as the original?

Also since China is funding this movie there are changes made to the jacket. The symbols for Japan and Taiwan have been removed. And again this is why I hate the pandering to the Chinese government.

I don't mind, it isn't exactly world war 2 anymore. Not even in the movie, which is clearly set long after the first one.

The thing it's still pandering to the Chinese government, who has done things like this before. That's why we got Celtic Ancient One.

I'm sure Americans wouldn't appreciate Japanese pilots sporting Pearl Harbor medals, either.

If that was the case, then why is the Taiwanese flag also removed. It's really not really about Japan's past, but the fact they just ate any country they have beef with.

Well, it's unfortunate, but it's hardly the end of the world, either. I'm sure the absence of these flags won't detract from the enjoyability of the movie (and if it did, the movie would have bigger problems than that).

It's not the end of the world, but it is a question that is kind of concerning. It's stuff like that which makes having, say, openly Gay Characters A LOT harder to include; "What do we do with this big budget film that x, y, z country won't allow because they hate THE GAYZ TM?"

As for the film itself... My honest reaction to the news of a Top Gun sequel and it's trailer is... "This is a thing that exists?". Why does this exist?

I mean, I know the simple answers are greed and our ever growing problem of green lighting reboots and sequels with a supposed "built-in assured audience" rather than newer and perceptively "risky" I Ps that have no such "built-in audience" for them. But... Top Gun? Really?

Between this and Last Starfighter 2, they really feel like they're scraping the bottom of the barrel.

I agree for now, the trailer is basically nostalgia bait for the original.

I'm just waiting till the day Tom Cruise decides to do an action film in space at age 70. An action film in space for REAL, on the ISS, with extravehicular repairs gone wrong and all.

Is that an SR-72 at the end? What if the plot is wild mass guess Maverick trying to defect to the not!Iranians with it because the government cut his family's Tricare to fund the program? wild mass guess
