Maverick is back, baby! Top Gun star Tom Cruise surprised Comic-Con attendees in San Diego on Thursday when he unexpectedly stopped by Hall H to unveil the trailer for the sequel to the beloved 1986 film, officially titled Top Gun: Maverick.
While not much is known about the plot right now, Cruise is clearly reprising his role as the United States Navy’s elite fighter pilot made famous in the original. In the upcoming film, the character is quite a bit older than we last saw him, but it seems Maverick is still a high-flying captain whose superiors want him to quit stalling and climb the career ladder already (could guilt over the death of his BFF, Goose, still be holding him back?). On top of wrestling with those career responsibilities, a potential romance with Jennifer Connelly, new trainees (Glen Powell, Miles Teller), and more.
Watch the first trailer for the film above — which also stars Jon Hamm, Lewis Pullman, and Ed Harris — before it flies into theaters in 2020!
