Gran Turismo Aimed To Borrow The Best Parts Of Top Gun

David Harbour, who plays Jann’s trainer in the film, agrees with the comparison to the “Top Gun” franchise, telling GamesRadar that “there’s somewhat of a throwback quality to [“Top Gun: Maverick”]’s pace, and to what that film is doing, and there is to us as well. I feel like we are very related to that, and are in the same family as them.”

If nothing else, both movies have a history of trying to be as practical as possible. Archie Madekwe, who plays Mardenborough, told Empire that he’d have to “just throw up everywhere” in between takes. This is not unlike the price the cast of “Top Gun: Maverick” had to pay to be in the film, with Glen Powell saying that “there was a lot of puke during filming.”

Of course, it paid off. Not only did “Top Gun: Maverick” look fantastic and made you believe it was shot practically, but it made a ridiculous amount of money at the box office. Maybe it will work for “Gran Turismo,” too?

We’ll find out when “Gran Turismo” races into theaters August 11, 2023.
