It’s been over thirty years since Top Gun graced our movie screens and actor Tom Cruise captured our hearts. But now, it’s time for him to do it all over again.
On Thursday (July 18,) the trailer for the new movie Top Gun: Maverick came out, with Cruise himself unveiling the sneak peek at Comic-Con in San Diego.
“I’m feeling that loving feeling, I’m definitely feeling that loving feeling from you all,” Cruise told the crowd according to People magazine.
“Thirty-four years ago I made a movie here in San Diego. I actually shot across the street at a restaurant. You’ve all asked for many, many years asking, ‘Why don’t you do another one? When are you going to do another one?’ In 34 years you guys have been very, very patient with me.”
The trailer focuses in on Cruise, who is shown still sitting in the cockpit of his high-powered jet after all of these years. It also features some instantly recognizable scenes and music from the original movie.
“Everything you see in this film is for real,” Cruise added. “For me, Top Gun is about competition, it is about family, sacrifice, heroism, aviation. It’s a love letter to aviation.”
The movie, which also stars Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, Val Kilmer, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell and Ed Harris, is set for release in June of 2020.
