One major similarity between Top Gun: Maverick and Twisters, according to Glen Powell

Glen Powell has become one of the most popular stars in Hollywood since his appearance Top Gun: Maverickand the actor is probably hoping for his latest film Twisters is as big a hit at the box office as the Top pistol follow-up. The two films have a lot in common on paper, aside from the fact that Powell appears in both films, and it seems like this is the case very early in development.

In a conversation with Empire, Glen Powell makes it clear that he is thinking Twisters will be a great movie. He seems pretty confident that audiences will love it, and one of the reasons for that is that the production approach to making Twisters was very similar to the way they approached making Independent thinking person and the audience certainly loved that. Powell explained…

We knocked this movie out of the park! I remember when we were breaking Top Gun: Maverick, we went back to the original to figure out, ‘What do audiences want from a Top Gun movie? What are the set pieces and characters that feel totally Top Gun?” The same happened at Twisters. Our film honors the former, but stands on its own merits.
