Fans feeling conflicted about Tom Cruise and Scientology after seeing Top Gun 2 trailer - 2019-07-19
Of course the thing looks gorgeous, and the fighter jet porn is choice, but forgive us if we found Cruise's two lines a bit hackneyed. However, the reaction we saw online was less about the clip's cinematic qualities and more about Tom's connection to Scientology, now that the organization's controversies are a lot better known by the public than the last time Maverick took to the skies.
We collected a few reactions to give you some sense of the variety we saw. We figure Top Gun 2 will crush the box office regardless of how much Cruise has been connected to Scientology's abuses, but it appears that a lot of fans will be going to the theater feeling awfully conflicted about it.
