Top Gun: Maverick Alternate Trailer Explains why Pete Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is Still Captain after 30 plus years of service in Top Gun
The funny video in this post features an alternate trailer for Top Gun: Maverick and it’s an understatement to say that Tom Cruise is cockier than before.
The official two-minute teaser boasts blockbuster scenes with Maverick taking to the skies in F/A-18 Super Hornet and F-14 Tomcat fighter jets, chasing his need for speed on his motorbike and attending a funeral.
But if you wanted something a little more, well, light-hearted, one savvy person on the internet has created the alternative trailer you never knew you needed.
And it is wild.
The revamped version takes a snippet from the original trailer where Maverick is being scolded by Ed Harris, who says: ‘You should be at least a two-star admiral by now, yet here you are… Why is that?’ Maverick’s response: ‘It’s one of life’s mysteries.’
Cut to the next scene – which definitely didn’t appear in the original trailer – of Mav flying his Super Hornet wildly over a beach, sending sun loungers flying everywhere and drawing a penis shape in the sky.
Top Gun: Maverick is set to hit theatres on June 26, 2020. It was originally slated for release on July 12, 2019 but it was delayed so filmmakers can work out logistics with the complex flight scenes, Deadline reported.
Jennifer Connelly, 47, has been on set with Tom, and will play Maverick’s love interest, replacing Kelly McGillis who played Charlie in the original.
Val Kilmer, who played Lt. Tom ‘Iceman’ Kazansky in the original, will also reprise his role in the sequel while Miles Teller, Glen Powell, Jon Hamm and Ed Harris are joining the cast for the second instalment.
