I cannot tell a lie: The inspiration for this post came during my second time seeing Top Gun: Maverick in the theatre. Does that mean I can write off that AMC ticket? What about my jumbo Diet Coke? Regardless: It’s well worth a trip back into last month to take a look at everything that was whipped together for Jennifer Connelly’s press push for Top Gun. Spoiler: You may come out of this wanting some leather boots.
