"No CGI here!"

The team behind the upcoming 'Top Gun: Maverick' were not shy to share how real the fighter jet scenes are in the new film.

The Top Gun sequel, aimed to be released Boxing Day this year, shows how crew flinched and ducked for cover as the low-flying jets flew over their heads.

Film producer Jerry Bruckheimer​ had revealed the actors in 'Maverick' had to endure three months of flight and survival training in order to prepare for their roles. The training programme was designed by the film's star Tom Cruise, who is known for not wanting to rely on CGI and wishing to do stunts himself.

"I said to the studio, 'You don't know how hard this movie's going to be. No one's ever done this before'," Tom Cruise told Empire magazine.

"There's never been an aerial sequence shot this way. I don't know if there ever will be again, to be honest."
