The wait for Paramount’s Top Gun: Maverick has been very long, but the release is finally within sight. A new trailer has been released today, and the newest footage turned our excitement levels up even higher for this movie. Tom Cruise, back as the one and only Maverick, is chasing all sorts of adventures in the sky once again.
Maverick is requested by former rival Tom “Iceman” Kazansky to return to the Navy to lead a new group of pilots. However, Maverick does not want to stand on the sidelines. He wants in on all the action. Maverick crosses paths with Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (a.k.a. Rooster), played by Miles Teller, the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw (a.k.a. Goose). “My dad believed in you. I’m not going to make the same mistake,” Rooster says to Maverick’s face in the trailer.
More than 30 years after serving as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Maverick is still pushing the envelope as a test pilot and going head-to-head with authority. He soon finds himself training a crew of Top Gun graduates for a specialized mission. This new mission is unlike anything any of them have ever seen, including Maverick.
Maybe the studio took the extra time with these delays to correct the blatant Chinese influence which persuaded the studio to remove the Japanese and Taiwanese patches from Maverick’s jacket as seen in the first trailer?
It’s already about 25 years too late, Tom, but your post-production crew can spend this extra time replacing the Japanese and Taiwanese flag patches that went missing from from Cpt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell’s jacket.
(Psst. China appeasement ain’t such a good look these days.) https://t.co/TRWSmrgUSd
