Maverick is back! Paramount has just released the brand new trailer for Top Gun: Maverick and it has literally everything you could want from a new Top Gun trailer.
Tom Cruise is back as Captain Peter “Maverick” Mitchell, donning the famous leather jacket and aviators once more and for the first time in over thirty years it’s safe to say plenty of Top Gun fans are excited to see Maverick back again.

The official trailer was released at San Diego Comic-Con, in which Cruise surprised eager fans with the never before seen footage and what we love most about it, is that the trailer doesn’t give anything about the plot away. It seems that most trailers that are released at the moment have the feel of a short film, showing you practically every scene-stealing moment of the film and leaving little to the imagination.
The Top Gun: Maverick trailer is thankfully, very different. During the 2:14 long trailer, we are shown the incredible footage of Cruise in yet more death-defying stunts at break-neck speed and are shown glimpses of the cast which includes some familiar faces, and some newer ones.
Check out the first trailer for Top Gun: Maverick, below:
Making a guest appearance at SDCC, Cruise spoke about his ‘responsibility’ to make another Top Gun movie, after almost 34 years on from the iconic original.
Speaking to a packed Hall H, Cruise said: “Top Gun is about family, about sacrifice, and it’s about aviation.
“34 years ago I made a movie in San Diego, right here. I actually shot across the street in a restaurant. You all have asked for many, many years and I’ve traveled across the world and people have asked: “When are you going to do another one?”
‘I felt it was my responsibility to finally deliver for you”.
Thank you, Tom Cruise, thank you.
In typical Tom Cruise action-man fashion, he later promised audiences that they would be wowed by the new-look Top Gun, stating that “Everything you see in this film is for real”.
As well as the returning Cruise, Top Gun: Maverick will also feature Miles Teller, Ed Harris, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, and Val Kilmer who is returning as Iceman.
If that doesn’t get you hyped for Top Gun: Maverick, then nothing will!
