Top Gun sequel trailer - watched with a grin

On the one hand it looks a bit like a shot-for-shot remake and a cynical attempt to extract a few nostalgia dollars because they lack the imagination to do something new but on the other, it looks like they're committed to maintaining all the thinly veiled homoeroticism of the first.

IN.

At the end the homosexual eroticism was so strong I’m surprised iceman and maverick didn’t kiss.

Val Kilmer is in the sequel so it still might happen.

Val's in it as well?  Oh god there goes my hopes that it would be a new story with Maverick making a brief appearance as a random reasonably senior officer.

Val Kilmer hasn't aged well either. Yet he gets to come back and not Kelly McGillis.

TC seems to be a major character in it, which isn't unexpected

People like lindaradlett would comment too much on her looks.

it sounds as shit as the point break remake. 

Tbf the original was pretty shit too, but for the fighter jocks. The a/c were the real stars.   

As long as the remake let's the navy pilots do their thing again then all will be good.

 

Agreed.  I love listening to ‘Dangerzone’ when I’m on the A30 on my bike.
