Paramount has released the second trailer for 'Top Gun: Maverick' the much-anticipated sequel to Cruise's blockbuster military drama. The sequel comes in 33 years after the original flick. The latest trailer sees Cruise return as Pete Mitchell aka Maverick and his character's role in the movie has shifted. Charles Parnell who plays a Rear Admiral introduces Maverick in a polished, stern voiceover: "Your instructor is one of the finest pilots this program has ever produced. His exploits are legendary. What he has to teach you may very well mean the difference between life and death." The rest of the footage sees Maverick in his Navy fighter pilot suit doing what he does best— get the adrenaline flowing with his high flying stunts as he teaches his recruits the dose of somersaults and flips he did in the 1986 installment. The trailer also features two new stars, Glen Powell ('Set It Up') and Miles Teller ('Whiplash'). The Kawasaki GPZ900R and the volleyball sequences induce that nostalgia. There's enough of cheek from Mitchell too. You can watch the trailer here: "I have to admit, I wasn't expecting an invitation back," Maverick tells his commanders. "They're called orders, Maverick," Parnell's officer replies. The official premise reads: After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy's top aviators, Pete "Maverick" Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. "When he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: "Rooster," the son of Maverick's late best friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka "Goose." Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it." Directed by Joseph Kosinski, the action flick also stars Jon Hamm and Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly. 'Top Gun: Maverick' flies into theaters on June 26, 2020.
