Tom Cruise returns to the role of Top Gun fighter pilot “Maverick”, and Val Kilmer is even back as “Iceman”. The first Top Gun was released in 1986 and I was 12 years old at the time and I could not wait to see it. The 12 year old me was hoping for a lot more action from being pumped up by Kenny Loggins Danger Zone. Wow, I almost forgot how terrible 4:3 Pan and Scan was, that music video is a nice reminder of how far we have come.
Top Gun: Maverick is not in theaters until June 26 of 2020, but I am already excited. I don’t care, I love Tom Cruise. I enjoy his movies. I can’t wait. Sadly, we don’t have a 5.1 studio mix of Trailer 1. But I am quite impressed in the information that the DTS:Neural upmixer was able to pull from the two PCM channels. There are a lot of directional sounds but it isn’t overly aggressive. Until a true 5.1 mix surfaces, this will fill the gap.
