Top Gun: Maverick trailer 2 revealed with high action Top Gun 2 is ready to return to theaters next year, but another trailer is out today. Tom Cruise is the star of this film, coming back as the same character he portrayed in the first Top Gun film. This film was written by Peter Craig, Justin Marks, Christopher McQuarrie, and Eric Singer. Val Kilmer will also be in this film reprising his role from the first Top Gun film. This film will be directed by Joseph Kosinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
This film also gives producer credits to Tom Cruise, David Ellison, Don Granger, and Dana Goldberg. This is a direct sequel to the original Top Gun, which was released in 1986. New actors to the series include Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Ed Harris, and Lewis Pullman. Miles Teller will play the role of a pilot trainee, son of Cruise's character Pete "Maverick" Mitchell's late RIO, Nick "Goose" Bradshaw. Teller's character is Lt. Bradley Bradshaw, with callsign Rooster!
For more information on Top Gun: Maverick, take a peek at the timeline of links below. This film should be very similar to the original, but with Cruise in the role of a teacher instead of a hotshot. It'll have some action and flying and will generally make Cruise out to be a major hero of the United States fighting forces for the defense of the country. Thirty-four years after the release of Top Gun, Maverick will return to the cockpit. But this time, Tom Cruise has a pilot's license.
After lots of talk and false starts, Top Gun 2 aka Top Gun: Maverick, hits theaters in the summer of 2020. For moviegoers of a certain generation, the event film is up there with the Star Wars: Episode VII; just like George Lucas' space opera sags and Steven Spielberg's Jaws, director Tony Scott and producer Jerry Bruckheimer's 1986 air pilot drama revolutionized blockbuster cinema, grossing over $350 million worldwide. Cruise's career has morphed dramatically since the actor's first mega-hit. These days, the Mission: Impossible star is hanging on by a helicopter strap as superhero movies crowd out most action-star-driven spectacle. Buckling back up for Top Gun: Maverick was an inevitable development — but in the hands of Oblivion filmmaker Joseph Kosinski, the sequel appears to one-up the hair-raising aerial photography from the first movie and bring something new to screens. It helps when your leading man can actually fly the damn plane. The actual trailer's slim on plot. Maverick is back, training a new set of recruits on how to take to the skies. Newcomers Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, and Glen Powell all appear, but at the end of the day, this is the Cruise show, and better for it. Only a star of a certain calibre can break the sound barrier and make that face without us turning on him. Top Gun: Maverick hits theaters on June 26, 2020 in both traditional and IMAX formats. The new trailer sees Maverick introduced, decades on from the first movie, as "one of the finest pilots this programme has ever produced" as he returns as an instructor to a new generation of US fighter pilots. "His exploits are legendary. What he has to teach you may very well mean the difference between life and death," the trainees are told. Following a couple of action-packed shots of aerial stunts involving fighters jets, it's back on the ground for Maverick as he meets some senior personnel on the base. "Your reputation precedes you," Jon Hamm's character tells him, to which he replied: "I have to admit, I wasn't expecting an invitation back." Epitomising the way the Maverick fans know and love from the original Top Gun lacked in acknowledging authority, he's then reminded: "They're called orders, Maverick." Alongside Cruise, Top Gun: Maverick stars the likes of Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris and Miles Teller.

Major clue Val Kilmer is also reprising his role as Tom 'Iceman' Kazansky. Among Maverick's mentees will be his late friend Nick 'Goose' Bradshaw's (Anthony Edwards) son, Bradley 'Rooster' Bradshaw (Teller). Fans get their first real look at Rooster in the new trailer as he and the new recruits seem to follow in the footsteps of his father Goose and his new instructor Maverick, playing sports on the beach, hanging out in bars and getting stuck in to training with impressive aerial stunts. Back in July, the first-look trailer showed Maverick back in the cockpit again. Top Gun Maverick trailer: Tom Cruise is back as Maverick to train a new generation of recruits Naturally, there were plenty of nods to the 1986 original, with Maverick donning his leather jacket, grabbing those famous Aviators and mounting a motorbike to the soundtrack of the iconic theme. The first trailer featured what seemed like a tense meeting between Maverick and Harris' character, who referred to him as "the only man to shoot down three enemy planes in the last 40 years". "Yet, you can't get a promotion, you won't retire and, despite your best efforts, you refuse to die," the superior officer continued. "You should be at least a two-star Admiral by now, yet here you are, Captain. DON'T MISS... Top Gun Maverick removed THIS iconic detail to please Chinese powers?

"The end is inevitable, Maverick," he was warned later in the clip. "Your kind is headed for extinction." "Maybe so, Sir. But not today," he replied. Top Gun: Maverick's official synopsis reads: "After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy's top aviators, Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. Trending The second Top Gun 2 trailer has arrived. In it, we get to see a lot more of what many of us military aviation nerds are most excited about, aerial footage! The good news is there appears to be a substantial amount of it. The bad news is some of the set pieces look a little cheesy, even for the Top Gun franchise. We'll have to wait to see how all of it plays out on the screen when the film opens this Summer. One thing that was a surprise is we got a glimpse of the high-speed test aircraft Mav flies during a sequence in the movie. It looks very SR-72-ish. Also, it is awesome they shot that at NAWS China Lake. It hasn't been the most Hollywood-friendly place in the past, unlike its Air Force counterpart, Edwards AFB. The Navy test base was hit hard by a series of earthquakes last Summer and it still needs billions of dollars in repairs. This will give team China Lake a nice little morale boost. Overall, it looks like an amazing love letter to the Super Hornet. Boeing must be elated! Anyway, check out the trailer for yourself below.
