Just this morning, Paramount Pictures released a new trailer for their upcoming film “Top Gun: Maverick.” Yeah, we’re still pretty excited about the film, but this new look seems to be focusing too much on classic shots from the original Tony Scott-directed film from 1986.
Joseph Kosinski directs, with Tom Cruise back as Captain Pete Mitchell aka Maverick, and Miles Teller playing the son of Mav’s old flight partner Goose (and has Rooster as his call sign). Also starring Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Charles Parnell, Bashir Salahuddin, Monica Barbaro, Jay Ellis, Danny Ramirez, Greg Tarzan Davis, and Ed Harris.
Okay, how about that co-ed volleyball game?!
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 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.
“Top Gun: Maverick” opens in theaters everywhere on June 26th, 2020.
