As the hype continues over the June 2020 release of Top Gun: Maverick, film execs have found the perfect way to drive some interest to the much anticipated sequel.
Just release a new trailer every once in awhile.
And yes, that’s exactly what happened Monday (Dec. 16,) when the second movie trailer for Top Gun: Maverick was released. As in the last trailer for the sequel to the original Top Gun movie, Tom Cruise is the focus of this sneak peak that has his character, Pete Mitchell, returning to flight school to teach a whole new set of pilots some of his iconic moves.
“Your instructor is one of the finest pilots this program has ever produced,” actor Charles Parnell says in the trailer. “His exploits are legendary. What he has to teach you may very well mean the difference between life and death.”
“I have to admit, I wasn’t expecting an invitation back,” Cruise, who plays the role of Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, says in the featured scene.
“They’re called orders, Maverick,” Parnell’s officer replies.
And heck, even the YouTube description is getting us excited.
“When (Maverick) finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, he 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.”
Oh we can’t wait for this.
