After decades of promises, a Top Gun sequel is here. Tom Cruise appeared at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday to unveil the first Top Gun: Maverick trailer.
If you liked the original film, it feels safe to say you’ll like this one… as it appears you may be watching the exact same movie.
A sequel usually plays the greatest hits of the original in some fashion, but it usually doesn’t look as though like it’s a shot-for-shot remake. From sweaty beach sports to piano playing in bars, it just seems as though this is a greatest hits of Top Gun.
We’re hopeful that the onslaught of nostalgia notes were in this first trailer to lure us in and there is a lot more originality to be had. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Top Gun: Maverick hits theaters on June 26, 2020.
