Apparently the highway to the danger zone is moving slower than Monday morning rush hour traffic and will take a whole lot longer than planned to get everyone to their final destination. According to Deadline, the release of Top Gun: Maverick has been moved a year.
The decades-later sequel to 1986’s Top Gun, was scheduled to hit theaters on July 12, 2019, but Paramount has switched the release to June 26, 2020. Is it because the wardrobe department needs more time to figure out how to construct a flight suit harness that will hold in Jon Hamm? Are the writers having a difficult time trying to explain how Goose and Carole made such a douchey son? None of the above, actually. Sources tell Deadline that Paramount has extended production time in order to perfect the complex flight sequences, so the movie can “be great.”
Meanwhile, Val Kilmer was spotted taking a break from filming to have lunch with his daughter.

People magazine describes Val as “looking healthy” while out with his daughter, which I would agree. Val needs to be as healthy as possible before he starts shooting Top Gun: Maverick, and that involves all types of health, like mental strength. Val’s can’t show any hesitation in the event Tom Cruise approaches him during a break and starts talking about religion. “I see you’re a Christian Scientist. Isn’t it so crazy how close Scientist sounds to Scientology? Here, let me give you a pamphlet.”
As if the addition of Miles Teller didn’t add enough douche bro fumes to the upcoming reboot of Top Gun, the ghost of Jon Hamm’s fraternity hazing past will also be haunting the set. Deadline reports that in addition to Jon, Ed Harris, and Lewis Pullman (son of MY president Bill Pullman), will also be joining the cast of Top Gun 2: Look Who’s Topping.
Stars, they’re just like us! When they feel crotch tingles, they let their fingers to the walking on the world wide web for a little sweet release. And with the help of modern technology, everybody’s kink can be honed and sculpted to their exact tastes. Some stars you can just look at and know what type of porn their into. George Clooney’s probably into vintage 1930’s era tuxedo porn; Goldie Hawn probably likes German naked wood-nymph stuff. But when it comes to thinking about what gets Tom Cruise’s “meat body” (THE ACTUAL L.RON APPROVED TERM) all hot and bothered, the mind draws a blank in a merciful act of self-protection. According to Indiewire though, Tommy boy didn’t even know internet porn existed until Seth Rogen hipped him to it in 2006.
Because “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” Ain’t Gonna Promote Itself, People Did A Profile On Tom Cruise
Most of us around here spend our time snickering and making Tom Cruise Scientology bathhouse jokes, but I guess the powers at People don’t see David Miscavige’s favorite minion ever giving up the Mission: Impossible gig – and an exclusive is an exclusive – so they decided to give the staff a vacation and let Tom’s team write a cover story about “private details” that really are just a giant fap fest/nothing burger of how he’s a good guy who keeps to himself.

Of all the Top Gun sequel news I was hoping for, the biggest was that I’d hear Kelly McGillis would return as the no-nonsense instructor of a flight school called Take Your Own Damn Breath Away. But since that’s probably not ever going to happen, I’ll take this news as a decent substitute. Tom Cruise ran into Entertainment Tonight at the Washington, D.C. premiere of Mission: Impossible – Fallout over the weekend, and he confirmed that Jennifer Connelly will be in Top Gun: Maverick.
Tom said this about Jennifer joining the cast:
“Look, she’s a great actress, obviously. When you see the film, you’ll see why she’s perfect for it. She has such a very talented, very vibrant, and, you know, see we’re just going to have a great cast. Gonna be a lot of fun.”
The Hollywood Reporter says that Jennifer is likely playing a single mother who runs a local bar near the Navy base. Tom Cruise has a tendency to play opposite of much-younger love interests, and Jennifer Connelly is 47 (Tom is 56). A mere nine-year age difference would surely break Tom’s brain. So I’m going to assume Jennifer’s character’s backstory is that she’s a single mom who had a one-night stand back in the ’80s with Maverick, who left her to raise a kid named Bingo on her own while she slung punny Naval-themed drinks. She tried many times over the years to tie Maverick’s cockpit down, but she just couldn’t compete with his first love: shirtless volleyball games.
Looks like Tom Cruise‘s “No Dating For Five Years” clause in his divorce from Katie Holmes is really over. Like REALLY over. I mean we got Katie’s rep to give a seven-word statement on the matter last month and now we have pictures of them together? Fuck me, my head is spinning from all this BREAKING NEWS in the world of FoxHol. Continue reading
