Tom Cruise is officially a space cadet

| September 24, 2020 | 21 Comments

Maverick himself is going into space next year on a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule. He’s going with director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) to film the first major Hollywood movie in space. There’s one seat left to fill on the capsule. It’s my understanding that both AW1Ed and Mick have expressed a desire to go with, in light of all that Tom Cruise has done to help naval aviation.

The movie doesn’t have a name yet. Or a plot. Don’t really need either in Hollywood these days to be honest, but they have the big star and are escaping the planet to film it. The way 2020 is going, I’m jealous they get to leave this dumpster fire we call home, the third rock from the sun. If the Space Force doesn’t get on this ASAP, it’s an enormous missed opportunity. This could be the Top Gun or Strategic Air Command for the fledgling branch of service.

Say what you will about the man and his beliefs, but he does get some props for doing most of his own stunts. That exploding fish tank in Mission:Impossible? Not only did he do it, it was his idea. Motorcycle and car chases in a variety of movies, all him. Scaling the Burj Khalifa? He did it. Hang off the side of an Airbus A400M? Yep. He’s more than adequately compensated for this to be sure, but most A-list actors aren’t actually putting themselves in any danger. The biggest risk they take on a set is food poisoning from the shrimp cocktail.

We don’t know how epically awesome Top Gun:Maverick will be. If it’s anything like the first, it will be a spot-on representation of naval aviators and aerial combat. To his credit again, Cruise is actually riding in the Super Hornets doing the high-G maneuvers. A couple years ago he developed some impressive helicopter piloting skills for that insane helicopter chase scene in Mission:Impossible – Fallout.

Thanks to the Gun Bunny for the story tip.

    Is Musk sure they can fit Cruise’s oversized ego into the capsule?

    Must be looking for Xenu.

  3. Slow Joe says:

    Why does Tom Cruise do his own stunts?

    There is no reason for that. It raises production costs, the insurance must be sky high, and if something happens to him, the movie is over.

    I don’t think the claim that it adds realism is valid these days, when no scene in a movie remains untouched by CGI and most people cannot tell what its CGI and what not.

    The Gun Bunny is going to go deep into his burrow. I fear that Mick is loitering on station with a fully loaded FA18. ‘Ed has a SAR Mission up, Seek And Revenge. Bwwaaaahahahahahahahahaha!

    “Blasting to the Danger Zone!” Tom Cruise’s favorite space place is Uranus.

    Congrat’s Tommy! You were a complete and full-on dickhead during the shooting of Top Gun and now you’ve become fully fledged Space Cadet!! So glad we can now see you for what you really are… Still a snivelling little stunt-cunt.

    Top Gun was one of the WORST military movies I’ve ever endured. It’s a wonder Tony Scott waited so long to throw himself off the Vincent Thomas Bridge. I don’t hold out much hope of the sequel being any better.

    • Ex Coelis says:

      You were saying some good things right up till the point you co-joined Tony Scott’s suicide with the movie Top Gun. Couldn’t agree with you more; Top Gun was a complete and full-on waste of film stock… However and For the Record – Tony Scott was a long time and very good friend of mine and he DID NOT commit suicide because of Top Gun. Words to the wise – FIRST and FOREMOST – THINK about what you’re ACTUALLY saying,, SECOND – love the look of your printed words and sound of your own voice a lot less…

    Wait. They are going to leave him up there, right?

  8. LCDR Anderson Cooper, Space Navy says:

    You think they will have a realistic Navy Locker room scene in space like they did in Top Gun? Some of us really enjoyed that.
