Yes, he's going to be in it.

Unfortunately, he has been battling throat cancer over the last couple of years and looked to be in really bad shape around the time the movie was being made, so it's not known how big his role will be. Based on some of the things that have been said, it sounds like it's more than a cameo.

He's supposed to be in it I thought. Maybe just one scene or two, Iceman is probably retired or something

I get that Cats has been super popular for decades but this is going to be a tough one to pull off. Some effects look just terrible.

Cats seems like the musical that least needs a movie adaptation. Where's my Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat?!!

Oh and I'm trying not to be excited for this, but it looks pretty good. Not sure about some of the casting.

Mid-tier... I have to think this is going to be a pretty big event movie. 80s nostalgia is hot, and Top Gun oozes it.

The Sonic trailer is the strangest most disturbing thing I have ever seen.

Cats: hold my beer.

Mid-tier compared to say an Avengers: Endgame or Star Wars: Rise is the Skywalker. Top Gun will do well but I think itís absolute box office max is $250M.

Which would likely make it a top 10 movie of the year, out of hundreds.

You should probably catch some non-Disney flicks once in a while if you think $250M is mid-tier. Thatís more than either Bohemian Rhapsody or A Star is Born, which were both huge last year.

I didnít mean it like it was a bad thing ó not sure why thereís the attitude. I follow box office stuff pretty closely and would consider it to break down pretty simply, hype-wise

Top tier: good potential to make $300M+

Mid-tier: good potential to make $200 - $299M

Low-tier: good potential to make $100 - $199M

No-tier: likely less than $100M

Obviously within the hundreds of movies that come out in the year, this breaks down into a very fat bottomed pyramid with 90% of releases not even on the radar. And something can make mid or low tier money and still be a big success, like Bohemian Rhapsody or A Star is Born which made big bank on small budgets thanks to awards season legs. But Top Gun is a $140M budget tent pole summer movie ó you have to think the executives are looking for that top tier gross.
