Top Gun: Maverick Producers Share Incredible CGI-Free Behind The Scenes Clip
The film company behind the new Top Gun film starring Tom Cruise has shared an incredible piece of footage showing how they've managed to film Cruise flying a fighter jet using no computer generated imagery. Have a look at this video:
With the revelation the other day that film studios could be asked to either forego sex scenes altogether or replace them with CGI versions of the actors as part of a number of coronavirus combating measures, it's good to know that Tom Cruise is still out there risking his own life for our enjoyment.
Anyway, the film - which is called Top Gun: Maverick - looks set to be an explosive and expensive military romp, as you might expect if you've seen the original.
As if to ram that point directly down everyone's throats, the production company behind the film decided to share one of the more challenging shots they've managed to film so far.
They captioned it: "No CGI here."
Unlike this giant fighter jet that Cruise - who famously likes to do as many of his own stunts as possible - appears to be piloting, we won't be seeing this film flying into cinemas any time soon, as it's had to be pushed back.

Actually, it was supposed to hit theatres this month, but that was before coronavirus came into play and basically wound up the whole industry in a matter of days.
So, what can we expect?
Well, Cruise stars alongside Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, and Val Kilmer to name just a few of the movie's stellar cast.
The official synopsis reads: "After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy's top aviators, Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell (Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.
"When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialised mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Bradley Bradshaw (Teller), call sign: 'Rooster', the son of Maverick's late best friend and radar intercept officer Nick Bradshaw, known as 'Goose'.
"Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it."
Top Gun: Maverick is slated for release on 23 December 2020, provided everything goes to plan from here on out.
