The Maverick has landed! The trailer of the highly-anticipated 'Top Gun: Maverick' is finally here and it teases actor Tom Cruise's return to his fan favourite role as a hotshot fighter pilot, who is ready to roar back into action.
The trailer has all the elements -- thrill, drama, action and humour to keep the moviegoers glued to the screens. The film is a sequel to the 1986 hit movie 'Top Gun'.
Tom Cruise shared the intriguing trailer on his Twitter handle, writing, "Maverick is back. #TopGun"
The sequel is set decades after the 1986 movie and features actor Miles Teller as the son of Anthony Edwards' pilot Goose, who is killed during a training exercise in the first movie.
Cruise reprises his role of ace pilot Pete Maverick Mitchell with Miles Teller playing Bradley Bradshaw, the son of Anthony Edwards' character Goose. The action flick stars Jennifer Connelly, Lewis Pullman, Charles Parnell, Jay Ellis, Glen Powell, Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, Val Kilmer (who is reprising his role as Iceman), Bashir Salahuddin, Danny Ramirez, and Monica Barbaro, reported Variety.
Joe Kosinski directed the film, from a script by Peter Craig, Justin Marks, and Eric Warren Singer. Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced the first movie with the late Don Simpson, also produced the upcoming film with Cruise and Skydance CEO David Ellison.
The film is set in the present day but has the feel of the '80s project from the late filmmaker Tony Scott. It follows fighter pilots as they deal with drone tech making their old style of flying obsolete.
'Top Gun: Maverick' is slated to hit the screens in 2020.
