The latest trailer of Top Gun: Maverick just dropped, giving us another better idea of what to expect from the long-awaited sequel to the film that made Tom Cruise an international superstar.
The original Top Gun followed a group of young naval pilots undergoing intensive training at Top gun, a Naval Fighter Weapons School at Naval Air Station Miramar. Produced by the legendary action film gurus Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Tony Scott, Top Gun was one of the biggest box office hits of 1986, so bizarre that it took 34 years to become a sequel.
Maverick finds himself in the role of an instructor by cruise hotshot pilot Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, who is teaching a new generation of pilots that includes Bradley "Rooster" Bradshaw (Miles Taylor), Maverick's friend and co-pilot Goose. (Anthony Edwards) 's son), who was killed in an accident in the previous film. Spoilers for Top Gun, I think.
Top Gun: Maverick also starred Jennifer Conley, Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, and Val Kilmer, who return as Maverick's rival Iceman (considering Malfoy for Maferick's Harry, less than just a sociologist). The film is directed by Joseph Kosinski, from the screenplay by Peter Craig, Justin Marks, Eric Warren Singer and long-time cruise collaborator Christopher McQuarrie.
Top Gun: Maverick opens on June 26, 2020.
