HOLLYWOOD – After Paramount Pictures released the official trailer of Top Gun’s sequel – Top Gun: Maverick – last Summer at Comic-Con International in San Diego on July 18, the film production company has now released a new trailer of Top Gun 2 on December 16. We have to be patient though – the sequel of the 1986 blockbuster will be in theatres June 26, 2020. Watch the brand new trailer for Top Gun: Maverick – starring Tom Cruise, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris and Val Kilmer.
‘Top Gun 2’
In Top Gun 2 the story continues as Pete Maverick Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs after more than 30 years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.
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, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Rooster Bradshaw (Miles Teller), the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka Goose. Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
The long-wait sequel
Development of the film began in 2010 when Paramount Pictures made offers to Jerry Bruckheimer and Tony Scott to make a sequel to Top Gun.
Sadly enough, Tony Scott passed away on August 19, 2012 at the age of 68. Don Simpson – who produced Top Gun with Jerry Bruckheimer – also passed away, in 1996 at the age of 52.
Top Gun 2 will now be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Tom Cruise, among others. Film Director Joseph Kosinski – best known for his computer graphics and computer generated imagery work – will be the new director.
For many still a long wait though, before we finally can watch the long-wait sequel. For now – as the time flies by – let’s enjoy this stunning new trailer of Top Gun: Maverick, because I feel the need…the need for speed!
