“We’re going to show what it’s really like to be a Top Gun pilot.”
So says producer Jerry Bruckheimer about the long-awaited sequel Top Gun: Maverick, and here’s the behind-the-scenes featurette to prove it.
In an age where everyone makes the default assumption that what they’re watching in a blockbuster is a digitally animated, Paramount Pictures releases this look at the real-life aviation stunt work, including from star Tom Cruise.
Real flying. Real G-forces. Just tell those crew guys on the ground sitting directly underneath the low-level flyby that it’s being faked or is some sort of post-production visual effect cheat.
Top Gun: Maverick opens on June 26, 2020.
