They should have done that in '86 . . . Oh sh*t, they did, WTF?

Just saw some footage on Entertainment Tonight of Maverick and new love interest on motorcycle . . . Another original idea.

I'm still excited. Aviation movies are rare enough, ones that use cameras mounted to real fighter planes are more so. I am not expecting originality or earth shattering plot. Just fighter jets and some rock and roll.

Well, I am sure it will be a thrill ride. As for a good plot and storyline??? That is very much up in the air... :?

I just hope they don't go crazy with CGI.

I doubt that will be an issue with Tom Cruise. Plus, all of the Super Hornets flying around....Yet, does that mean the F-35C is not part of the movie???

I think any cinematic bandits are almost certainly going to be CGI

I for one hope they go old school with a lot of the flight & fight scenes and use large scale RC and large scale static models. Yes definitely need some CGI to avowing using the F-5 yet again as the super duper Migs.

But I get tired of watching cartoons pretending to be movies like SW prequels and the entire Marvel lineup.

Please minimal CGI and lots of cool large scale RC.

IMO it's a safe bet the PLAAF/PLAN won't be the bad guys so no J-20. No way the producers risk losing the Chinese movie audience.

The most likely scenario is the Chinese show up in the last 30 seconds of combat, save the day, sacrifice a Chinese hero, against some rogue terrorist (but can't be Muslim) nation state with the means to sink a carrier.

But will there be a gratuitous gay volleyball scene with the Chinese?

How about they use the same bad guy, only this time using Flankers with CGI re-skins to give them a rogue nation look. You also cannot give it missiles shaped like Russian, Chinese, or any third party with the likeness of a target audience.

Or go all in and make the bad guy the victim of uncontained international arms traders. A little bit of everything.

:devil: I only played volleyball during my sojourn at HMAS Cerberus early 1967. Court was at the back of our Midshipman residence called 'The Gunroom'. The Base is HUGE but miles from the city of MELBOURNE Victoria, especially in those ancient years of 'NO public transport worthy of the name' days. Also we used to 'double time' in a squad EVERYWHERE so we all were 'fit as fiddles' but not gay. We were well prepared for very 'gay' RAAF basic flight training nearby Point Cook.
