Most of you are probably yawning at the news: The first official trailer for Top Gun 2 was released a few hours ago. And admittedly I only came across the news by accident.
Nevertheless, be it known that Top Gun is one of my all-time favorite movies. Possibly my #1 favorite. And on a very hot day in Denver, it was a treat to find this trailer. Quite literally, the flying gives me goosebumps. Always has. The music gives me goosebumps (just hearing the first note of the theme is enough). Always has. Might even be the best part. And yes, in these two movies, even Tom Cruise gives me goosebumps. Or at least his character does.
It’s been 35 years since the first Top Gun. That’s a long time for fans to wait for a sequel. And it won’t be in theaters until next summer. All I can say is, it better be damned good. It has a lot to live up to.
