Top Gun: Maverick is back in the game, starring Hollywood A-lister Tom Crusie. The first film in the series was released in 1986 and launched the actor's elite career in the industry.
The film has now dropped the trailer to the long-anticipated trailer, and fans are understandably excited to watch the film after such a long wait. The sequel will star Cruise's reprised character of Maverick as a test pilot and aviation instructor.
The trailer launch of the latest movie is one step forward to finally coming close to the legendary sequel. It revealed that the film will star Val Kilmer, who will reprise his character as Iceman.
Though the actor appears in the trailer for only a split second, easy-to-miss moment, it would be nice to see the love-hate relationship between Iceman and Maverick. Miles Teller plays Lt/. Bradley "Rooster" Bradshaw is Maverick's late friend's son. You would remember the friend to be Nick "Goose", played by Anthony Edwards in Top Gun.
The new character of Rooster will force Maverick to confront his past and what his darkest fears were then, back in time.
According to the film's synopsis, the plot revolves around Pete Maverick Mitchell, played by Tom Cruise. He has been at the top of his game as a Navy pilot and has served the Navy for thirty years. Even with his significant post, he is working his best and has been testing his limits as he advances through the ranks and proves his courage.
It is only when he meets the students enrolled in the Top Gun mission, a project like no other before, that he gets to meet "Rooster", also known as Lt. Bradley Bradshaw, played by Miles Teller. Being the son of Maverick's friend, Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nich Bradshaw "Goose", from the past, meeting Bradley brings forward many memories of the past in front of the pilot.
The trailer shows a mixture of action sequences and phenomenal aviation and flying shots that make it an incredibly interesting watch. Miles Teller, Glen Powell, and Monica Barbaro are the new recruits to take on the challenge of the mission in the film.
The mission is a blind leap into the dark future, and with his past haunting him, there is nothing Maverick can do to save himself from the fears that would attack him again. Needless to say, there is also the danger of the mission he has signed up for, and there is only a meager chance that he would make out of it alive.
The trailer gives an unlimited peek into the vast scale of action numbers featured in the film. While Top Gun: Maverick will build-up to the immense danger foreshadowed by the training for the mission, regardless, the true battle is brewing between Maverick and Rooster.
Rooster's father, Goose had been killed during an exercise fluke when he was training at the aviation academy. It is clear that Rooster harbors hateful feelings for Maverick and might be on the way to seeking vengeance.
The tensions run at an all-time high between the learned and the trainee pilot, and they could take the action upon themselves at any time during the film. On the other hand, it would be great to see Anthony reprise his role as Goose for a while.
The film is directed by Joseph Kosinski, and he has already worked with Tom Cruise in Oblivion. Others to star in the film are Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, Monica Barbaro, Charles Parnell, Danny Ramirez, Manny Jacinto, Bashir Salahuddin, Jay Ellis, Jake Picking, Raymond Lee, and Jean Louisa Kelly.
The screenplay in the film is controlled by Ehren Kruger and Eric Warren Singer, and Christopher McQuarrie, while the story comes from Peter Craig and Justin Marks. The production controls fall to Tommy Harper, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, Chad Oman, and Mike Stenson.
Previously, it was revealed that Thomasin McKenzie would also join the cast of the show and would take on the role to play Connelley's daughter. Connelley is a single mother who owns a bar in the locality of the Naval base.
At the time of the announcement, McKenzie had bid goodbye to a career-defining role in the exceptional production Leave No Trace. The role propelled her popularity in Hollywood, bringing even better opportunities her way.
Getting to star in Top Gun: Maverick was a phenomenal achievement at the time. However, McKenzie scored another and better position at the time. Therefore, it was revealed that the actress has chosen to end her journey with the Top Gun sequel.
McKenzie shared the reason why she chose to leave her position with Top Gun film and choose another project. She revealed that she trusts her team a lot and feels that they will know better as they have been in the industry for far longer.
As they have more experience with film, they would know which film is better for her to star in. Additionally, her gut feeling was telling her that she was lucky enough to have the opportunity where she could get to choose between two exciting projects. Hence, she chose Lost Girl as her option.
She explained that she was really hooked on the story of Lost Girl and wanted to be a part of a film with an entirely female cast. Yet, she appreciated the chance to star in Top Gun Maverick and relayed her gratitude for the same.
The film is expected to release on May 27 this year.
