Tom Cruise feels the need for speed and nostalgia in the first full-length Top Gun: Maverick Trailer

It has been more than three decades since Tom Cruise starred as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in the 1986 favorite movie Top Gun. And now the action star is back in the first full trailer for Top Gun: Maverick, and it’s clear that he needs speed and a bit of nostalgia.

This time around, Pete Mitchell is a Top Gun instructor for a new class of recruits, and the two-and-a-half-minute trailer begins with a voice calling him “one of the best pilots this program has ever produced” .

“His exploits are legendary,” said the unidentified voice. “What he has to teach you could very well mean the difference between life and death.”

After Cruise’s character admits that he didn’t expect an invitation to return to Top Gun, his co-workers tell him “they’re called orders, Maverick”. The trailer then switches to different action-packed scenes with Maverick on his motorbike, shirtless guys playing beach volleyball, and intense dogfight in the air.

The new trailer gives fans a first look at the sequel to come after Cruise gave fans a look at Comic-Con. According to Us Weekly, the 57-year-old surprised everyone when he showed up in Hall H at the Paramount Pictures and Skydance presentation of Terminator: Dark Fate to announce the release date of the highly anticipated film.

He told the crowd that they had been patient with him for 34 years and that he felt it was his responsibility to deliver.

Directed by Joseph Kosinski, Top Gun: Maverick also stars John Hamm, Ed Harris, Val Kilmer, Jennifer Connelly, Jean Louisa Kelly, Miles Teller, Jay Ellis and Glen Powell.

Ellis sang Cruise’s praises in September, saying that he is a mentor, filmmaker and someone with a very strong point of view that he can communicate very clearly. The 37-year-old loved working with Cruise because not only did it allow them to “go out and play”, but he also sought out his cast and his team.

Originally, the plan was to release the sequel last summer. However, Paramount announced in August 2018 that they were postponing the project for a year.


Top Gun: Maverick will hit theaters across the country on June 26, 2020.
