Paramount Pictures unveiled the adrenaline-fueled Super Bowl spot for Tom Cruise’s action-packed film Top Gun: Maverick! The spot shows off some really cool new footage to featuring Cruise racing through the skies and going upside down! The movie looks spot on and solid and I hope it will do justice with the first movie.
Director Joseph Kosinksi recently talked about the movie, revealing the story that will be based on a group of fighter pilots who have already graduated from the Top Gun school:
“In our film, these are all Top Gun graduates who are coming back for a special training detachment — which is another aspect of Top Gun where they can go back for specialized training after they’ve already graduated. They’re at a different level of experience than in the first film.”
The movie stars Miles Teller as Goose’s son, Val Kilmer, Glen Powell, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Ed Harris, and Lewis Pullman. Here’s the new synopsis that was released:
After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he 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 Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” 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.
Top Gun: Maverick will be released in theaters on June 26, 2020.
