"Top Gun" sequel filming aboard Norfolk-based aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln [2 videos at URL]
21 Aug 2018 Brock Vergakis

"...The sequel to the 1986 blockbuster “Top Gun” is being filmed aboard the Norfolk-based USS Abraham Lincoln this week, according to the Navy.... The much-anticipated sequel began shooting May 31....

...“Stylistically it’ll be the same,” Cruise said in the interview. “We’ll have big, fast machines. ... It’s going to be a competition film like the first one and it’s going to be in the same vein, the same tone as the first one, but a progression for Maverick.”

A 15-person crew from Paramount Pictures and Bruckheimer Films went aboard the Lincoln on Sunday and will remain through Saturday, said Naval Air Force Atlantic spokesman Cmdr. Dave Hecht. He said no actors are aboard and that the crew is shooting footage on the flight deck of air operations, which include F/A-18 Super Hornets from Virginia Beach-based Carrier Air Wing Seven taking off and landing as part of their carrier qualifications....

...n July, Variety reported that “Only the Brave” star Miles Teller was tapped to play the son of “Goose” and is Cruise’s new protege in the sequel. In the original film, Goose was played by Anthony Edwards and served as Cruise’s radar intercept officer in the F-14 before his character died during a training accident. Cruise also said on the “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” last month that Val Kilmer, who played Cruise’s rival, “Iceman,” in the original film, would return for the sequel....

...The sequel is set to debut on July 12, 2019, according to Paramount."

Good for Kilmer. He's been through a rough patch and was very keen on the sequel.

A lot of people are going to be disappointed. If, the F-35C isn't included in the story line to some degree.... :shock:

Navy will promote SH to the max. There's always TopGun 3.

Is the navy involved in production?
Coz if not, then we can tell where this is going?

Millennial pilot (Glen Powell) has an over reliance in technology.
Maverick is more about, instincts and gut feelings.
they do some DACT.

we all know what happens next,

Considering TopGun2: Maverick (or whatever they're calling it) is filming on the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln CVN-72 there has to be some Navy involvement. See http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/23 ... -top-gun-2
Hopefully they'll keep any computer animation down to the bare minimum. TopGun had some great cinematography! Only the sci-fi movie "Final Countdown" came close to showing a 80's carrier deck in all it's glory see https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/the- ... tdown-1980

Top Gun: Maverick Will Likely Feature F-35C Joint Strike Fighters

By: Megan Eckstein
August 27, 2018

Hollywood’s latest take on naval aviation, Top Gun: Maverick, will likely pair the Navy’s new Lockheed Martin F-35C Lightning II Joint Strike Fighters alongside older Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornets, in the sequel to the 1986 blockbuster.

A film crew from Paramount Pictures was aboard aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) the same time the Navy began launching F-35C jets off the ship interchangeably with F/A-18E-F Super Hornets as an integrated air wing.

With six F-35Cs operating aboard Lincoln since Aug. 20th, USNI News understands, the film crew almost certainly got an up-close look at the Navy’s newest fighters – operating alongside the Super Hornets, the EA-18G Growlers, the E-2 Hawkeye and the C-2 Greyhound..............

Delayed to 2020: https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/mov ... 137656002/

The studio dropped the bomb Wednesday that the release date for Tom Cruise's anticipated sequel "Top Gun: Maverick" would be delayed one year to June 26, 2020.

The movie was originally intended set to open in July 2019 and had begun early production this spring with plans to resume in September.

News of the postponement came just one week after Jon Hamm and Ed Harris were added to the cast.

Sounds like they didn't include the F-35C originally. Yet, they now realized their mistake and had to go back and start over.........


QUOTE: The extra time will give filmmakers the opportunity to work out the logistics of presenting flight sequences with new technology and planes, according to a Paramount statement.

The F-35C is probably the best F-35 to make a movie with considering its greater sustained turn rate and more aesthetic shape.

I think that will be lost on 9,999 out of 10,000 people who watch the movie, maybe more... :mrgreen:
