Top Gun: Maverick Trailer

"The end is inevitable Maverick, your kind is headed for extinction…" Surprise! Paramount Pictures has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Top Gun: Maverick during Comic-Con this week, and it's available for all of us to watch online. And holy shit!! This looks incredible. This footage will definitely take you back to the original Top Gun from 1986, and remind you why fighter jets are so damn cool. There's no actual plot revealed yet, and this trailer doesn't really explain much, but I'm already in anyway. Tom Cruise is back as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, and Val Kilmer is also back; with a full cast including Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, and Ed Harris. This will definitely tug hard on your nostalgia, and damnit, it totally got me and will get you. I love all the flying shots! Bring it on, Kosinski.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Joseph Kosinski's Top Gun: Maverick, direct from YouTube:

Top Gun: Maverick

McQuarrie having a hand in writing the script gives me hope, but it's got 4 writers attached....which makes me nervous.

Haha. I want these two franchises to be separate!! Each one has its own cool thing to offer, no need to mash them together. Let Ethan Hunt and Maverick exist in different universes! I'm fine with that.

Might as well go all the way. "Show me the need for speed!" "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE NEED FOR SPEED!" "This courtroom will self-destruct in 5 seconds" JERRY REACHER'S IMPOSSIBLE FEW GOOD RISKY COCKTAIL GUNS. Jumping soon, on a sofa near you.

Some damn impressive shots

Looks a bit shallow, just like the first one. Except for the music. Oh yes, I still liked that ...

Good to see you on your toes here, far as the music...I didn't even notice the darn music....Cruise just makes me laugh...see my post above. Cheers!

Well, I was young then and music appealed to me. A little, nothing special. Just a memory about that time, nothing more. As for either of these films, my full comment might be: Ouch. Cheers Bo ...

"I feel the need for speed"...still. Looks great. I just hope the Danger Zone song is the same...can't beat that...

All eyes on Cruise once again. The logo works and it definitely screams "Top Gun", so let's hope it soars and doesn't crash and burn. (YOUSEEWHATIDIDTHERE?!?)

This fighter jet will self destruct in 5 seconds......

13 gotta laugh because I'm no Tom Cruise fan and hated the first Top Gun, so....I chuckled at Cruise and his line delivery and reaction in this trailer...he's the same in all his movies...same guy...same delivery...same phony cool guy with a quip...slick Hollywood acting I said...can't stand the little midget cult freako!

But @npr-be1b4d5930a3ad3b5ada2a8236376237:disqus, how do you REALLY feel? lol

The age of fifth-generation jet fighters (F-22 , F-35) and still flight with F-18?

still a bad muthafucker

From this trailer, I worry they're going to depend too heavily on callbacks and plot point of the first (a la The Force Awakens), but it'll still be a stupid fun time.

when i first heard about this, i was disappointed and had no interest. leave it be, i thought. but a trailer about fighter jets using only in-camera shots of actual flying, that also explicitly references the fact that the character is out of date, and which somehow manages to get me pumped against my better judgment while still showing nothing of the plot? plus Ed Harris? colour me interested. who'd have thunk?
