I rarely watch movies even with the convenience of Netflix and a 50" TV in my living room let alone the expense and hassle of going to a theater but as soon as I saw this trailer I turned to my girlfriend and notified her that I *will* be going to see this movie on the day of release. No questions.
I'm sure it will have a lot of nostalgia content, because why wouldn't it? Star Wars Episode VII did and some of that was cool, but I hope the story line and characters are a bit more developed in Top Gun than they were in Star Wars. I have zero interest in seeing another Star Wars film, ever.
There is a female pilot in the trailer (for a second) so I'm assuming she's going to have a fairly central role in the film. I'll assume she's worth her salt but I hope they give her some realistic flaws. When I was supporting Top Gun in Fallon, NV we had one female Marine student pilot come through and she almost always had trouble trying to get the jet's systems to work on the ground. Almost every launch she'd have a troubleshooter hook up to walk her through something. Other pilots some of my friends talked to confirmed that she was a bit clueless on the ground but could fly like hell. In one simulated battle she bagged an F-16 AND an F-22. *EDIT: I'm sure that USAF Raptor pilot is still taking flak for being shot down by a female Marine pilot in a Legacy Hornet that is probably older then either of them.*
