Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Tom Cruise sitting on top of the worlds tallest building Burj Khalifa without safety harness.

Top Gun: Maverick was the smash blockbuster movie hit of Summer 2022, and reached yet another pinnacle of recognition by nabbing a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars. The movie is a fast-paced good time, but wouldn’t quite complete the sequel equation without the central romance between Tom Cruise and Jennifer Connelly’s characters. Now, director Joseph Kosinski has shared how their characters’ relationship changed throughout filming the movie to better suit the story Kosinski was going for.

The Oblivion director sat down with Vanity Fair to detail behind-the-scenes factoids about the most difficult scenes to bring together for Top Gun: Maverick, and how the different character relationships were established. The action filmmaker revealed that Cruise and Connelly’s relationship was approached much differently as written in the original script, and he explained why changes were made while filming, revealing that establishing scene between the characters at her bar was just as hard to capture in some ways as the high-flying stunts. In his words:

For sure, the bar scene is as intricate if not more than any action scene. You’re introducing all of those people, but you’re trying to maintain Maverick’s point of [view] throughout it. So all those eyelines, making sure that you’re clocking him, watching him observe all these people come together. That was the probably the scene that we spent the most time writing and rewriting, and probably changed the most over the course of the film. Because we really changed the Maverick-Penny storyline halfway through, and that’s the scene that sets it all up.

This is such an important scene in the film because it not only pull the audience into Penny and Mav's relationship, but also the various dynamics between other characters, as well as Maverick’s internal battles concerning his past. The scene is doing a lot of heavy lifting in terms of exposition, and was likely very difficult to achieve due to changing dynamics between the characters. Kosinski further detailed how the central romance became reworked throughout the production process by explaining:

Well originally Penny and Maverick had not seen each other since 1985. So you ended up with him seeing a character that he hadn't seen since she was 18 or 19 years old. And after shooting it that way and putting the film together, there was too far for that relationship to go from not having seen someone in 36 years to where we wanted to get to at the end of the film. So that's when we came up with the notion of this is a relationship that's been on and off for decades, and Maverick and Penny would be ready to finally connect in a more meaningful way. The bar scene is the kickoff for that, so that's, that's why it required kind of so much tweaking to get it there.

Since the deepfakes of Tom Cruise have gone viral on TikTok, the technology involved has been a great source of discussion. While the videos made with Cruise’s likeness are all one in good fun and accompany an incredible impression of the actor, some have posed questions about the merits and drawbacks of such tech. Of course, one also has to wonder what the A-lister himself thinks about the clips. Now, the creator of the viral content is sharing how Cruise himself feels about the stream of attention-grabbing clips. 
Miles Fisher, the creative mind behind the videos, originally started making the deepfake videos of Tom Cruise as an art project under the TikTok account DeepTomCruise. Now, Fisher is the co-founder of a growing artificial intelligence software company. When it comes to the Cruise videos, Fisher reached out to the Mission: Impossible actor once the videos garnered widespread attention online. And as the tech-savvy content creator explained to CoinDesk, there don't seem to be any hard feelings from the actor when it comes to the digital recreations:

[It] was begun with the purpose of generating awareness for manipulated media, and the potential for what could happen. Obviously [deepfake] Tom Cruise is kind of irreverent, fun, entertaining content. When it suddenly blew up we contacted Tom Cruise’s team and ultimately they didn’t have an issue.

For those unaware, “deepfakes” are created when someone uses artificial intelligence to put a person's face on someone else’s body so it appears that someone is performing an action that they never participated in. Miles Fisher’s videos have proven to be harmless and have depicted him (with Tom Cruise’s face) playing golf or giving himself a pep talk in the mirror. The technology is so advanced that many can’t tell that Cruise isn’t actually the one in the video.
