Chris Pine Gets a Glorious '80s Makeover in the First Photo From Wonder Woman 2

Chris Pine Gets a Glorious '80s Makeover in the First Photo From Wonder Woman 2
Somehow, some way, Steve Trevor has been revived for the Wonder Woman sequel. And are we complaining? Hell no. Director and all-around badass Patty Jenkins shared the good news on Wednesday when she tweeted out a photo of Chris Pine, writing, "Welcome to Wonder Woman 1984, Steve Trevor! #WW84."

The actor is in costume as his beloved character, Steve, who memorably (and heartbreakingly) sacrifices himself to save the world at the end of the franchise's first film. Apparently he's not only been brought back to life somehow, but he's also gotten a pretty sweet '80s makeover, from his Top Gun jumpsuit down to his Forrest Gump-approved shoes.

Jenkins hasn't offered up any explanation as for how Steve's miraculous reappearance came to be, but we imagine some kind of weird science situation could be at play. After previously revealing that the film will be set during the Cold War,

Kenny Loggins has spoke with Tom Cruise about a new version of Danger Zone for Top Gun: Maverick

We know we’re getting the return of Tom Cruise’s Maverick and Val Kilmer’s Iceman, it’s been suggested by Cruise that we’ll get another volleyball scene, and now ‘King of the Movie Soundtrack’ Kenny Loggins has revealed to TMZ that he’s hoping to record a new version of ‘Danger Zone’ for next year’s Top Gun: Maverick.

“I met Tom Cruise on [The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon], and I asked him the question [about ‘Danger Zone’],” said Loggins. “He said, ‘Of course, we have to use Danger Zone.’ So I’m hoping to do it, maybe as a duet with a young act. I’d love to work with, well, there’s young and then there’s young. We have some feelers out to some pretty cool rock acts.”

Tom Cruise Stood Up to ‘All the Right Moves’ Producers When Lea Thompson Felt Uncomfortable With Nude Scenes
Tom Cruise was coming off the breakout success of “Risky Business” when he signed on to star in Michael Chapman’s “All the Right Moves.” The sports drama cast Cruise opposite Lea Thompson, and the actress revealed in a recent interview with Closer Weekly (via W Magazine) that Cruise had her back on set when she expressed being uncomfortable with performing nude scenes.

“[The producers] wanted me to show my breasts twice in the script,” Thompson said. “I didn’t even audition because I didn’t want to take my shirt off, but I got the part and was like, ‘Okay.’”

When Cruise heard Thompson didn’t want to be nude multiple times in the film, he took matters into his own hands and spoke to the producers himself. “Tom managed to talk them out of one of the [nude] scenes,” Thompson said.

The remaining nude scene required Thompson to appear topless. Cruise

His Sequel Trilogy Ideas Were George Lucas’ Worst Idea

Neil Calloway is glad we never got the Star Wars sequels George Lucas wanted…

Han smuggling monsters in The Force Awakens, the over egged Iraq War overtones of Rogue One, the jokes in The Last Jedi, that shower scene in Solo. What’s your least favourite part of the new Star Wars films?

It doesn’t matter. I know that it doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things – it’s a series of movies that don’t really matter, and we’re all just trying our best to get through life on this tiny insignificant rock on an arm of a not especially large galaxy – but it doesn’t matter in the context of Star Wars now, because nothing that Disney has thrown at us, or will ever throw at us is as bad as George Lucas’s idea for the sequels.

Lucas himself says fans would have hated it,

Kelly McGillis' Hollywood Comeback Is More About Hallmark Movies Than 'Top Gun 2'

After a self-imposed exile from Hollywood, Kelly McGillis is back on our screens. But she's not necessarily feeling the "need for speed" As her former co-stars Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer suit up for the sequel to 1986's Top Gun, Kelly likely won't be reprising her role as flight instructor Charlie Blackwood, Tom's on-screen love interest. Instead, she has been sticking to quieter projects like Hallmark movies and horror flicks. Kelly starred in Hallmark's An Uncommon Grace last year, for example, playing a grandmother living on a farm in Amish country. Other recent gigs of hers include the horror films The Innkeepers and We Are What We Are, the thriller Mother of All Secrets, and episodes of the TV shows The L Word and Z Nation. Kelly in Top Gun.

‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Begins Filming; Val Kilmer to Return

It seems that both Maverick and Iceman are set to fly again as the long-awaited sequel, ‘Top Gun: Maverick‘ has finally entered production! The sequel to 1986’s ‘Top Gun‘ has long faced development hell, not to mention the tragic death of the original’s director in Tony Scott back in 2012. Scott was originally set to return as director, but star Tom Cruise then enlisted ‘Oblivion’ and ‘Tron: Legacy‘ helmer Joseph Kosinski to step into the director’s chair. It felt like there wasn’t much movement on the film after this, but it seems that the film is back on track and currently filming.

Confirmed through both Cruise and producer Jerry Bruckheimer‘s respective Twitter feeds, the duo celebrated the commencement of filming on the sequel with individual photos from the set. Check out the photos below:

Kenny Loggins to update Top Gun theme song, Danger Zone for the sequel

Top Gun wouldn’t be the classic film it is today without the iconic songs that came out of the Tom Cruise-led film. So it’s joyful news to hear that one of the original songs, Danger Zone, is set to be revamped by Kenny Loggins for the sequel, Top Gun: Maverick.

In a recent chat with TMZ, the original songwriter, Loggins, revealed he had already had a conversation with Cruise as to whether the song could be used again for the follow-up.

“I met Tom Cruise on [The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon], and I asked him that question,” Loggins said, talking about doing a new Danger Zone song. “He said, ‘Of course, we have to use Danger Zone.”

Kenny Loggins Wants to Make a New ‘Danger Zone’ for ‘Top Gun: Maverick’

Kenny Loggins Wants to Make a New ‘Danger Zone’ for ‘Top Gun: Maverick’
Danger Zone” became instantly iconic icon when Kenny Loggins performed the Giorgio Moroder-penned song for the classic Tom Cruise film “Top Gun.” Now, as Cruise and Val Kilmer get ready to climb back into the cockpit for “Top Gun: Maverick,” the Yacht Rock co-captain teases that he might make a new version of the song for the upcoming film.

On Thursday, TMZ released a video in which they asked Loggins at an airport whether he would be involved in the new film. Loggins responded by saying he caught up with Cruise on the set of “The Tonight Show” and was told by the action star that he planned to involve Loggins with the film in some capacity.

Loggins isn’t spilling what exactly he would be doing for “Top Gun 2,” but he did suggest bringing in a current pop star — likely a male one — to put their own spin on “Danger Zone.

George Clooney: Looking Back on the ‘Extremely Normal’ Man’s Extraordinary Career

George Clooney: Looking Back on the ‘Extremely Normal’ Man’s Extraordinary Career
In 1994 a little show called “ER” premiered on NBC. Created by prolific science-fiction writer Michael Crichton, the series was a medical drama, somewhat in the tradition of “St. Elsewhere,” and focused on the private lives and burgeoning careers of emergency room doctors in Chicago’s County General Hospital. Among the cast members were Anthony Edwards, of “Top Gun” fame, up-and-comers Julianna Margulies and Noah Wyle, and George Clooney, a relatively unknown actor from Kentucky with a smattering of TV credits to his name, including recurring roles on “Roseanne,” the short-lived CBS comedy “E/R” and “The Facts of Life,” on which Clooney played the eponymous “George,” a charismatic handyman with winged hair who eventually quits his job to go on tour with pop star Cinnamon (played by ’90s singer Stacey Q).

ER” became a giant hit, winning numerous Emmy awards, with Clooney its resident heartthrob. If you were in college at the time,
