On Mar 29, 2022, a new trailer for Top Gun: Maverick dropped giving fans a better idea of what to expect from the sequel to the 1986 classic.
The adrenalin-infused trailer shows the Hollywood actor reviving his iconic role of Captain Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell after 30 years. He is now a high-flying test pilot and instructor. Top Gun: Maverick will release on May 27, 2022, in theatres.
The new trailer introduces viewers to the latest crop of the Navy’s top pilots, with one of them even asking, “Everyone here is the best there is. Who the hell they’re gonna get to teach us?”
Then comes, Cruise’s Maverick riding his high-powered Kawasaki Ninja H2R motorcycle. He is back to train and lead the new pilots at the request of Val Kilmer’s Admiral Kazansky, aka Iceman.
After some clashes among them, Maverick and his crew set out on a mission, which according to Glen Powell’s ‘Hangman’, is “combat on a level no living pilot’s ever seen”.
The trailer is loaded with scenes of thrill, drama, suspense, and action. It shows plenty of shots of Cruise’s Maverick jetting across barren landscapes and over mountain ridges. It also features some pretty spectacular shots.
Tom Cruise also shared the trailer taking to his Instagram and wrote, “The new trailer for #TopGun is here. See you at the theater.”
