Top Gun: Maverick is going to be the next movie franchise to get a sequel several decades too late. It worked for Jumanji, but it didn’t work for Men in Black. At least Top Gun has brought Tom Cruise back.
Will it be any good? Who can say. Next year is going to be packed with interesting movies. I was never a huge fan of the original Top Gun. But this is a pretty good trailer. It makes the case for this movie to exist. So let’s keep an open mind and give Top Gun: Maverick a try!
The film comes out on June 26.
The best, easiest way for me to share the geeky joy coming out of Comic-Con is with movie trailers. They’re easy to post on this blog and require little work on my part. So how about we check out a bunch of them?
First up is the trailer for the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which looks insane and potentially awesome! I was a big Kevin Smith fan back in the day, during his good movie years. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was the first movie I went to see when I moved away to college. So I’m excited for this new film.
It’s probably not going to be very good. But it looks like Kevin Smith is just gonna go nuts, reflecting on his entire life and career. That should be more than enough to be weirdly awesome!
How about the new trailer for It 2!
Looks confidently scary and spooky. The first one was really good. Did I ever tell you henchies that I saw It twice in theaters? I saw it at the same theater a week apart with two different dates. It was weird, but funny in hindsight.
Next up is Top Gun: Maverick, a super weird return.
I was never super into the original Top Gun. It’s a fine film, and I saw it as a kid, but it wasn’t life changing. So to bring Tom Cruise back for a sequel some 30 years later? Yeah, sure, I suppose that’s what people are doing these days. The trailer looks alright. Here’s hoping it’s worth watching.
Stay tuned to my blog over the next couple of days for even more trailers and any other news I can squeeze out of Comic-Con!
