Top Gun was one of the key movies that put Tom Cruise on the map, and the sequel has been languishing in Development Hell since 2010… Until now. Cruise discusses his anticipation for the film and what audiences ought to expect from the sequel – most of which are humorously obvious.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight done in conjunction with his press tour for The Mummy, Tom Cruise opted to keep his answers about what’s in the movie hilariously vague, though he did hint at one of the original movie’s most memorable scenes being revisited in a new light:
“There’s gonna be jets — very fast jets. There’s gonna be an aircraft carrier, maybe two. And a wide range of jets. It’s gonna have music… We have a soundtrack. There’s gonna be actors in it. [And a] motorcycle — definitely [a] motorcycle. [There] may be a volleyball scene. Maybe. We’ll see. I have not told anyone in the world as much as I’ve just told you right now.”
The volleyball scene in Top Gun is among one of the most famous scenes in the original film (that don’t have anything to do with flying) since it featured Tom Cruise in his prime, and it’s also been the butt of many jokes due to the movie’s unintentional homoerotic subtext. For now, there’s not a lot else to say about Top Gun: Maverick, but hopefully the movie has a greater amount of momentum toward getting made soon.
Top Gun: Maverick does not currently have a release date. Tom Cruise is slated to star, while Joseph Kosinski is in discussions to direct the movie.

Top 10 Movie Trailers From This Summer That Will Fire You Up
Every year, an avalanche of trailers, teasers, TV spots flood the Internet, trying to grab the attention of busy and overstimulated audiences. It’s gotten to the point where now, trailers are such a commodity, that the trailers themselves have teasers. There’s a reason: trailers, when they’re good, can be an artform all their own.
I love trailers, being the guy who is always rushing his friends and family to the theater early “so we don’t miss the previews.” Every summer, I make a YouTube playlist of my favorites that acts as my own personal radio station because frankly, sometimes, I vibe more to how the trailer is cut than the music in it or, in bad cases, the movies themselves when I finally catch them on-screen. It’s gotten to the point that I imagine and dream in a trailer format, with music setting the pace for a smash-cut of scenes that I want to write or just enjoy the fantasy of.
If you love a good trailer like I love a good trailer, this list is for you. Here’s what I consider the top 10 trailers for the summer 2017. Click Next to start!
