The first thing to notice about the trailer is how at home Cruise looks back in his flight jacket. "You should be at least a three star admiral".

Titled Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel takes place decades after the 1986 original film and features Cruise's return as Maverick with Teller playing Bradley Bradshaw, the son of Anthony Edwards's pilot Goose. "I have that lovin' feeling", he added after the crowd's applause, referencing the original film's use of the song "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling". They worked with the Navy for the film, which is now in production.

The trailer paints Maverick as something of a dinosaur, unwilling to progress up the ranks and, according to his senior, played by Ed Harris, facing "extinction". "It's going to be a competition film, like the first one ... but a progression for Maverick".

Last month, the 32-year-old star sat down with The Wrap to discuss what filming the movie was like. He just really, really loves flying, as evidenced by the jaw-dropping aerial footage on display in the trailer. Maverick co-star Jon Hamm has backed up Cruise's claims. And it's mostly practical. The trailer ends with Ed's character saying, "The end is inevitable, Maverick. Those guys are really up in planes and getting thrown around in multiple G's" the actor told Collider in May. To borrow a lyric from another '80s favorite, he's not gonna take it anymore.

"Top Gun: Maverick" is expected to launch on June 26th, 2020, but that date might change depending on what other films are hitting theaters around that time.
