Cruise control

Actor Tom Cruise greets fans on the red carpet at the Japan premiere of "Top Gun: Maverick" in Yokohama on Tuesday afternoon. Cruise, 59, who is on his 24th visit to Japan, was last here in 2018. The megastar held up the release of the sequel to the 1986 film for two years because he wanted it be shown in theaters before allowing it to be streamed. The film opens in Japan on Friday.

Many fault Cruise for taking charge of production, the marketing, etc but have laud his continued drive to give his fans, and in this case via theaters first, a chance to see some exciting.

Well done, Tom and Good Luck. Will see Top Gun: Maverick this opening weekend.

I like Tommy boy here and all but does JT have always have to have something like, "Cruising Through Japan", "Cruise Control," "Going on a Cruise," "Cruise on to a Nearby Theater," every time they have a story on him?

I guess the chinese will design a replica aircraft after seeing this movie as they did in the first one!! LMFAO the crap they make don't work!!

They have already removed both the Taiwan flag and Japanese flags his flight jacket that was present in the first film, to cater to a certain movie market.

Having worked alongside test pilots and astronauts at the Air Force Flight Test Center back when we flew X-15s, all three variants of Blackbirds and both XB-70s, I can say this silly film is just adolescence in afterburner. The real professionals are nowhere near as juvenile as Cruse.

After 15 years of flying all the top line fighters on Xbox and PS, against the very best out there, I can say, we need Cruise more than ever as a deterrent to Russia, China, NK and sagging cinema revenue.

It is a fantasy film, which is fine. Many people find that entertaining.

I liked Tom better in "The Third Samurai".
