As we have reported earlier that Paramount Pictures Released Second Official Trailer of Top Gun: Maverick.
Just 48 hours after the second Top Gun: Maverick trailer was released, Paramount Pictures has posted a behind the scenes of top gun 2 during aerial footage shooting.
Well, this new clip, just released by Paramount Pictures, is a completely different story. “Real flying. Real G-forces. Pure adrenaline.”
Indeed, it brings you behind the scenes of the filming of the new movie, with scenes aboard an aircraft carrier as Super Hornets are prepared for catapult launch, inside the cockpit of Super Hornets and Tom Cruise’s P-51 Mustang. This is all real stuff. And it is insanely cool.
You get a rough idea at what flying in a fast jet looks like or means for a body that is not used or trained to sustain g forces. Interestingly 6 iMAX cameras were installed in the cockpit to film Maverick in the cockpit of the special colored F/A-18F Super Hornet.
Incredible amounts of coordination had to occur to capture them in-camera when Top Gun has shot nearly 35 years ago—read all about how this was done in this past feature of ours.
Now there are highly specialized aerial video services with modified aircraft that bring the latest digital camera tech to the fight. But you still need real fighter jets burning real gas and doing repeated setups to grab such imagery. This is an expensive and high-risk proposition.
We see a glimpse of a Cinejet L39 filming a Super Hornet going into the burner in the behind the scenes video, but it’s unclear if the actual air-to-air engagements will be rendered in CGI or if we will get the real deal. Let’s hope for more of the latter than the former.
Tom Cruise returns as Capt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, now a flight school instructor whose talents and exploits are a legend.
One of his students is Lt. Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw (Miles Teller), a pilot trainee and son of the late Nick “Goose” Bradshaw (Anthony Edwards).
This new adventure sees Maverick working as test pilot and training a fresh group of Top Gun graduates. He also encounters Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw (Miles Teller), who’s the son of his late friend Goose.
A little more than two minutes long, the spot for the Paramount Pictures’ film is packed full of action and, of course, some motorcycle riding.
In addition to Cruise, the movie stars Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, and Val Kilmer, who reprises his memorable role of Ice Man.
Top Gun: Maverick flies into theaters on June 26, 2020.
