I kinda want to see this just to see how they work around Val Kilmer’s serious health problems. His new cartoon voice and Tony Scott’s suicide still pretty fresh makes it all very depressing.

Tony has been gone for a few years now, and large chunks of the audience won't even remember that he did the first film.

The original is a cast iron classic that I now watch with my 4 year old son regularly. That said, this trailer looked pretty bad. Clearly it’s putting in versions of all the famous scenes (volleyball, piano etc) and it just feels forced and weird with old Tom. It won’t be a good movie and it will likely just shit on your memories.

I once sat in the cockpit of a Phantom II during my time in the army (wasn't airforce, we were just doing some event preparation for the then "Mölders"). Now, just to be clear: I love those old fighter plane designs*, which is why I said that I find it refreshing to see these "old" planes in the new Top Gun trailer. However, sitting in the cockpit of the F-4F without the power on made the thing feel like a death trap. In theory, I'm just the right height for a pilot, but it was nearly impossible to see anything in front of the plane. The threat indicator looked and felt like a cheap plastic imitation, and the stories I was told by the pilots ("certainly better than the Starfighter, but still just a brick with a huge thruster strapped to it") made me wonder how I was ever able to win a dogfight in "Flight of the Intruder".

*) While I do love the designs of the Western F-14, F-15, F-16 and also the F-18 and Eurofighter, I'm of the opinion that nothing can match the sleekness of the "Su-27" and its successors visually. The Flanker family is like something straight out of an anime:

Best jet never to go into production - the F-20 Tigershark.

... firing a "Maverick". The circle is complete.

This is just a terrible idea. Looks horrible.

Agreed, but getting older already does the latter anyways.
