First we got a teaser. Then we got the first official trailer which featured more cool nostalgic shots than any hints at the story. Today Paramount has dropped a new trailer for “Top Gun: Maverick”, the long awaited and often delayed sequel to the 1986 box office smash “Top Gun”. This new look answers several questions that many of us have been asking and includes some new fighter jet footage that is nothing short of eye-popping.
“Top Gun: Maverick” sees Tom Cruise returning to one of his most memorable roles – Pete “Maverick” Mitchell. In the thirty-plus years since we last saw Maverick burning up the sky and ticking off his superiors, the talented but reckless pilot has avoided any and all promotions. But when he’s ordered to train a new group of Top Gun grads for a special mission, he’s brought back into a world filled with excitement but also pain. It’ll be interesting to see how a “Top Gun” sequel plays after all these years. As a kid from the 80’s, I’ll be grabbing my ticket.
“Top Gun: Maverick” premieres May 18th at the Cannes Film Festival before opening in theaters May 27th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
I just saw this 30 minutes ago on my fireTV on YouTube and my response is…
I’m excited for it. I’ll be there for the fun, the nostalgia, and hopefully a really cool big screen experience.
Yet, it doesn’t really feel like the first film as it lacks the visual flair that Tony Scott was known for. Plus, I ain’t paying any more money for some overrated midget.
