Exactly ... I can't believe the number of people who actually have bought into this publicity stunt.

 

I like your take on Smith going "off script" ... he got a little too far into his Jussie character and "over acted" the part :)

It was definitely a bad outcome.

 

For those who think it's real, it's still a bad outcome. If real it means jokes will no longer be possible at the Oscars unless it's a target agreed upon before airing (Trump, etc) or a joke considered harmless. My money is on the Oscars appointing someone to this task for all future events.

 

Watch the ratings fall to BBC Doctor Who levels.

Anyone get the chance to see the latest Top Gun: Maverick trailer?

It looks so damn good.

That’s 100% better than the original trailers.

I think Jon Hamm is a brand new add. It’s unclear if Val Kilmer is in it beyond that photo. He’s in very bad health.

Miles Teller is a good actor.

Is this another Top Gun movie? Or #2?

"Top Gun: Maverick"

 

I'm quite solidly in the "I don't like Tom Cruise" camp (I think he's the consummate weird-O), but I couldn't help but enjoy Top Gun, The Last Samurai, and I'll probably like Maverick too.

Oh well.

Val Kilmer plays a 4 star general in the movie.

I believe he had recovered from throat cancer. Is there something else he’s dealing with now?

Lack of Hollywood good looks.

 

Kilmer-file-gty-ml-200803_1596456647689_

 

I just found it odd that his only appearance in the trailer is a nod towards his wall-mounted photo.

 

The 2019 trailer has Ed Harris talking to Cruise as his superior, in this new one we see Hamm much more.

 

This movie was ready nearly 2.5 years ago.  So they have had time to make a few changes.

Will Smith resigns from Academy.

Whatever that means.

Odd people.

Apparently Val Kilmer does appear in Top Gun: Maverick, albeit briefly and perhaps with a bit of CGI added.

That he's in the movie at all is apparently sending Top Gun fans into a frenzy ... this movie franchise definitely has its rabid fans.

 

The larger issue is that Kilmer's throat cancer has left him unable to speak, and the buzz is that his voice in Maverick will be completely recreated via A.I.

Odd people.

Had he been expelled, Smith would have joined a small group of men removed from the academy: Harvey Weinstein, Roman Polanski, Bill Cosby and the actor Carmine Caridi, who was kicked out for sharing awards screeners.

https://www.cbc.ca/n...signs-1.6406174

Roman Polanski was convicted of rape in 1977. He fled. It was hardly unknown. In 2003 his film received 3 Academy Awards. Including him for Best Director.

He was not expelled from the Academy until 2018.

What a strange world Hollywood is.

Ah, that’s why I thought this was a third film. I thought the sequel was released two years ago, but I guess theatres closed down back then.

How Bruce Willis, 67, made 22 'Geezer-Teaser' movies over three years for 'churn factory' and paid handler turned 'producer' $200,000 a film to 'keep an eye' on him even as he showed signs of cognitive decline


Willis was often accompanied on the set by an entrouge, and his longtime assistant Stephen J. Eads was paid up to $200,000 a film to shepherd him around. On the set of Open Source, small time actor Adam Huel Potter earned up to $4,150 a week to read Willis' lines to him through an earpiece.

Many of these films were the brainchild of churn factory producer Randall Emmett, known to many as the ex-boyfriend of Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent. Emmett has at least 20 credits on late era Willis movies.

Emmett, 50, has produced more than 110 movies, which have grossed in excess of $1.2 billion. His films have starred the likes of Willis, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Nicolas Cage and Michael Douglas.

Perhaps infamously, Emmett is best known as Wahlberg's former personal assistant and the inspiration for the character Turtle on the Wahlberg-produced HBO series Entourage.

Top Gun: Maverick: Tom Cruise makes an absurdly exciting return to the skies

5/5

Thrilling, moving and gloriously Cruisey, Joseph Kosinski's sequel to the 1986 hit is unquestionably the best studio action film in years

https://www.telegrap...xciting-return/

 

For $25 you can go see it at Silver City IMAX one day early (next Wednesday).  Or wait a day and IMAX is $20.

 

97% positive now at Rotten Tomatoes.

 

Here is a negative one:

 

 

 

Directed by Joseph Kosinski

 

Culture Representation: Taking place in California, the action film “Top Gun: Maverick” features a cast of predominantly white characters (with some African Americans and Latinos) representing the working-class and middle-class.

 

https://culturemixon...ing-tom-cruise/

 

“Top Gun: Maverick” is an uninspired, outdated retread of 1986’s “Top Gun,” but with more implausible scenarios and with no women in military leadership positions. Even the original songs in this sequel are forgettable. While “Top Gun: Maverick” has more racial diversity than the first “Top Gun” movie, the people of color in the movie are still relegated to “sidekick” and forgettable roles. “Top Gun: Maverick” makes the same mistake that a lot of sequels do: Copying the same plot as the first movie without improving it.

Exactly ... I can't believe the number of people who actually have bought into this publicity stunt.

 

I like your take on Smith going "off script" ... he got a little too far into his Jussie character and "over acted" the part :)

I'm glad you don't buy all the BS they try and sell  :banana:
