The first trailer is here for the long-gestating Top Gun
sequel, Top Gun: Maverick – and it’s dripping full of familiar beats and goosebumps-inducing
Tom Cruise is back to headline the follow-up as he reprises
the Peter “Maverick” Mitchell role that still stands as one of the veteran
actor’s most beloved.
Set 34 years after the events of Tony Scott’s 1986 original
movie, Top Gun: Maverick will see Cruise’s character heading up the Topgun school as its
new flight instructor. As it happens, one of the trainee pilots under Maverick’s
tutelage is Miles Teller’s Bradley Bradshaw – the son of Maverick’s deceased
BFF, Nick “Goose” Bradshaw.
From what we can see in this first trailer, there are a
whole lot of nods and winks to keep fans of Top Gun happy, whilst we also get plenty
of Ed Harris devouring scenery as one of Maverick’s superiors. And those aerial
shots? Absolutely glorious.
Filling out the rest of the cast, the Top Gun sequel will
also feature names such as A Beautiful Mind’s Jennifer Connelly, Mad Men’s Jon
Hamm, The Good Place’s Manny Jacinto, and a much-demanded return for Val Kilmer’s
Thomas “Iceman” Kazansky.
To be directed by Tron: Legacy’s Joseph Kosinski, Top Gun:
Maverick will soar to the silver screen on June 26th, 2020.
