Cinema Royale: Talking ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ (Special Guest: Karen Peterson of Citizen Dame)

We’ve had our breath taken away. We’re on the highway to the Danger Zone. We feel the need for speed!! On this episode of Cinema Royale, I’m joined by my good friend and Tom Cruise super fan Karen Peterson to talk, what else, Top Gun: Maverick! Does the long-awaited sequel have the goods to be a true ace? Or does it crash and burn, taking Cruise’s career with it?

All of this and more, of course! You can subscribe to Cinema Royale wherever you get your podcasts, and be sure to do the same on Youtube! Follow the Punch Drunk Critics and Cinema Royale!
