Back to the danger zone

Maybe, with everything else that’s been going on lately – the release of Infinity War, the endless debates about Solo: A Star Wars Story, the ongoing meltdown surrounding ABC’s Roseanne reboot – you forgot that a sequel to 1986’s Top Gun is headed our way.

The man himself is here to set the record straight that you put Joseph Kosinski’s Top Gun: Maverick back on your radar.

That’s right – this is the first photo from Kosinski’s Top Gun: Maverick, which has just wrapped its very first day of filming. Everything here appears in order: you’ve got your Tom Cruise in a flight suit, your helmet with the Maverick call-sign, the catchphrase, the jet. Even the lighting in this photo looks on point. Assuming you’re onboard with the idea of a Top Gun sequel here’s your evidence it’s happening

We don’t know much about Top Gun: Maverick. For now, we know it’s happening and that it’ll be in cinemas on 12 July, 2019. So if you feel the need, the need for speed mark this date in your diary and hang on tight…
