Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise is all set to return as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in the much-awaited film Top Gun: Maverick. The highly anticipated film, which is a sequel to Tony Scott’s Top Gun, is finally releasing in theatres on May 27 after several delays.
As Joseph Kosinski directorial is releasing this week, Paramount is leaving no stone unturned to keep the hype around the film at high until the premiere night. Top Gun 2 trailers that were released a few weeks ago are also much loved by the audience.
In the trailer of Top Gun: Maverick, Tom Cruise is seen still working at the same flight academy he trained in, however, as an instructor now. Among his students is the son of his former RIO Nick “Goose” Bradshaw (played by Anthony Edwards), Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw (played by Miles Teller), who isn’t exactly fond of him.
Aside from this core conflict, the film will also delve deep into Pete Maverick’s psyche as he’s forced to re-examine his life and deal with deep-seated internal turmoil that he has long tried to ignore. Moreover, he also showcases his daredevil attitude both on the ground and up in the air.
Tom Cruise’s attitude comes as a reminder to all the viewers that he may have aged, but his devil-may-care attitude is still very much intact. Much of the marketing for Top Gun: Maverick focuses on the fantastic stunts and action scenes that the film’s cast and crew worked on for months.
