The first thing that came to my mind after watching the trailer was this:
'Top Gun' Boosting Service Sign-ups:
Top Gun ‘Rehabilitated the Military’s Image’ After Vietnam, According to the Pentagon
To me, the timing of the release is very interesting…..a year from now/summer 2020, and I don’t think its coincidental at all given how helpful the first movie was to the DOD. I also remember reading that Top Gun 2 was in the works before Tony Scott’s death. Anyway, how powerful this piece of propaganda will be this time around, in banishing VA scandals and Veteran suicides from the minds of prospective conscripts is up to anyone to guess. I suppose that in asking that question, iam simply and vastly underestimating the power of the moving picture over the mind.
