After the trailer came out last December, I don't know about you, but I was really anticipating the release of the 1986 Top Gun sequel, Top Gun: Maverick, I mean, just the song draws you back in. The original release date for the sequel was set for June 2020. Paramount Pictures announced recently that it will now be released in movie theaters July 2, 2021. I am curious to see Miles Teller as Goose's son Bradly Bradshaw, St. Louis' own Jon Hamm, who plays a top Navy officer, not much about his character has been revealed, hope he's not the "bad guy," and Val Kilmer back as Iceman. Kelly McGillis will not be in the sequel and said in an interview, last year, that she wasn't asked to take part. Jennifer Connelly will play Maverick's love interest in the new film. I really wanted to see it on the big screen, it's all about the flying, so I'm okay with the wait to next Summer.

In related news the Maverick helmet recently went up for auction. Check it out below, along with the movie trailer, in case you haven't seen it, an interview with Jon Hamm from May 2019 about what it was like to make the film, and a "Then and Now 2019" cast video.
