    Well apprantly Tom cruise let it slip that TG2 will start filming next year maybe, wonder if Boeing and Lockheed are fighting over product placement will they be fighting in Super Hornets or JSF F35C. Will they use the GRF as a prop and get millions for her use, take you pick on adversary maybe Chinese J20, will the USN have a rush on Naval Aviator recruits again?

    What about the parts playedby Kelly McGillis and Meg Ryan have they even got a chance of betting the opening soundtrack?


    Anyone want to throw the hat in for a credable script?

    Under your bed. No seriously, take a look.
    That sad slew of remakes, sequels, and other pathetic ways to profit off of nostalgia and existing brands produces garbage films for an audience with chronic ADD. Sad but true, they will make bastardized sequels and remakes of just about anything these days.

    Reality TV shows (cheap to produce) have ruined much of network TV. God help us if reality movies happen along. Maybe GRRM should advance Game of Thrones to the jet age and we won't have to agonize over TG2.:D

    I grew up in the 80's loving the first movie I must admit! That said I don't have the best hopes for TG2 now as an adult.

    Even in TG1 they just couldn't work out a way to film BVR combat in an exciting way and in all likelihood they probably still haven't figured that out so chances are it's WW2 fingers on the cannons as the pilots try and line that pip onto the tail pipes again this time around, just via Raptors or JSF's! Maybe some fast mergers through the clouds as the planes pass each other by mere metre's without knowing where the other one is.

    Adversary wise everyone knows it should be China but there's simply too much money to be made in Chinese Cinema's today so the studio exec's will demand a "safe" enemy such as NK or Iran... maybe even a rogue Russian air force commander! If anything there may even be a weird alliance with China with a B-grade Chinese star thrown in with a J20 to help the Americans during the climax... sit back and watch the cash roll in for the studio over in the far east!
