Hey guys, Welcome back to RETRO CRUNCH, the show that is all about Current Pop Culture, Movies, Music, and Games that relates to all things 70s, 80s, and 90s!
Welp guys! Looks like there’s going to be a Top Gun sequel. Tom Cruise announced the news in an interview on an Australian morning show while promoting his new movie Mummy. This would mark some highly awaited news since Top Gun is now 30 years old. Also, Val Kilmer was asked about whether he would rejoin the cast for a Top Gun sequel and he was very interested – so all we need is for Goose to be resurrected and were all set! Kinda makes you wonder if a Nerds reboot should be in the works??? Hmmm…
And just last week Tom Cruise announced in an interview with Access hollywoo that theres now a title: Top Gun: Maverick and it looks like its going to center around combat simulation and competition dogfighting. In the world of drones and robot technology, I would not be surprised to see a man vs machine storyline for this new sequel. Maybe something like the movie Deal of the Century, staring Chevy Chase. Never know?
Also, Just this week, it was announced that The Gong Show is going to be coming back to television.
I remember watching the GONG SHOW as a kid, but im really curious to see if ABC is going to be able to bring that same fun and excitement to this remake. The interesting thing about the new GONG SHOW is the host will be none other than Mike Myers – whos no stranger to changing his appearance on screen and will be in disguise as Tommy Maitland, a made up character that even has a huge bogus bio to backup his career.
This looks like a huge gamble by ABC, and seems pretty weird to say the least, but then again, the GONG SHOW was pretty weird anyways. The show will premiere June 22nd on ABC, so I’ll deffinately be catching this one to see if it lives up to expectations.
And last is news that Battle of the Network Stars is being revived and will premiere on June 29th at 9 PM Eastern time on ABC. I watched all of the old episodes in primetime each year and even rewatched some of them recently on TVLAND and look forward to this one starting!
The original series pitted various stars from the ABC, CBS, and NBC networks against each other to crown the winning network the winner of the battle and it ran from 1976 to 1988.
This new series is going to be a hosted by 2 teams consisting of MMA fighter Ronda Rousey and NFL star Demarcus Ware and According to ABC, there will be 100 TV stars from 14 different network and cable companies that will compete on the show.
The hosts of the show will be Mike Greenberg and Joe Tessitore from ESPN and Cassidy Hubbarth and Cari Champion, also of ESPN will be the sideline reporters.
