FOIA'd documents prove that 'Top Gun: Maverick' is Pentagon propaganda

We don’t recall if this was news when the original “Top Gun” was released in 1986 or if it was some other movie; we know we read somewhere recently that Marvel Studios worked in cooperation with the Defense Department. For those too young to remember those “controversies” or who just can’t be bothered to care, Alan MacLeod says he has documents obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request proving that “Top Gun: Maverick” is Pentagon propaganda.

MacLeod writes:

The production agreement between the Department of Defense (DoD) and Paramount Pictures is an explicit quid pro quo. In exchange for all manner of technical support and access to military equipment and personnel, the Pentagon was allowed to “[a]ssign a senior staff, post-command Officer to review with public affairs the script’s thematics and weave in key talking points relevant to the aviation community.”

In essence, then, the movie functions as a two-hour 11 minute-long recruitment ad for the military. As one recruiter told Fox News, “We want to take advantage of the opportunity to connect not just the movie and the idea of a military service, but the fact that we’ve got jobs and we’ve got recruiters waiting for them.”

We don’t see “pro-war” in that highlighted section, but OK.

Hollywood works with the Pentagon all the time — it’s generally a win-win situation. The studio gets access to billions in military hardware and the armed services get some screen time.
