Top Gun 2 is really going to be a thing. And I’m fine with that, given my love for both 1980s movies, and Tom Cruise action hero bullshit. However, this casting is odd nonetheless. Again, again! I’m not complaining. But, what exactly is a afoot here?
HBO is throwing some serious weight behind its upcoming sci-western, Westworld. It’s got itself a serious fucking cast, big name creatives behind the project (Johnny Nolan, Abrams), and an order for a full season. And if that ain’t enough, it’s got itself a weird viral marketing campaign. Which goes together with J.J. Abrams like peas and poorly-executed mystery box reveals.
