Top Gun: Maverick NEW TRAILER: Tom Cruise has still got the need, Val Kilmer's image is seen


A new trailer for the highly anticipated new Top Gun movie starring Tom Cruise was shared on Tuesday.

The clip shows the formerly hot-headed pilot Pete Mitchell, who goes by Maverick, more mature as he becomes a flight instructor at the Naval Academy.

The star looks youthful as he rides his motorcycle and flies his plan upside down, proving time has not slowed down Cruise.

Top Gun: Maverick arrives in theaters on May 27. 

The synopsis reads: ‘After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.

The new trailer for Top Gun: Maverick sees the character, now advanced into middle-age, summoned back to Naval Fighter Weapons School by superiors keen to exploit his experience as  a United States Naval Aviator.

In a previous trailer, more is seen.  

While his unpredictability is undisputed, naval tutor Mitchell’s undoubted brilliance in the air is recognized in an opening monologue, delivered to a group of young, ambitious trainees during a class seminar. 

‘Your instructor is one of the finest pilots this program has ever produced,’ they are brusquely informed. 

‘His exploits are legendary. What he has to teach you may very well be the difference between life and death.’

Despite his grand introduction and the evident weight of expectation that surrounds his arrival, Mitchell can’t conceal his astonishment during a briefing with his seniors, among them three-star Vice Admiral Jon Hamm. 

‘I have to admit I wasn’t expecting an invitation back,’ he tells them with a wry grin, suggesting an undisclosed fall out in the years since we last saw him fly off into the sunset with Kelly McGillis. 

While appreciative of his apparent second chance, the pilot wastes no time in displaying his reckless streak by throwing caution to the wind during a complex exercise with his trainees.

Taking to the skies for a ‘two versus one’ dogfight, his overconfident pupils are left stunned as he skillfully navigates his jet between between them, narrowly missing their wings. 

With McGillis’s Charlotte “Charlie” Blackwood – the object of Mitchell’s undying love in 1986 – curiously absent in 2019, her spot is capably filled by a new and notably younger love interest, played by Jennifer Connelly.

And she is seen here – described as a single mother who juggles parenthood with the running of a local bar – locked in a tentative embrace with Mitchell, whose wistful expression suggests he has once again exposed the cloying vulnerability that originally won the missing Blackwood’s heart.

Fans of the original film will be treated to more than one nod to the past, with Mitchell seen tearing through barren countryside on the beloved GPZ900R motorcycle he rode to great affect as a younger man. 

There’s also another high-fiving beach volleyball scene that’s almost a double for the original film’s most iconic sequence, with shirtless pilots showing off their muscles – and their ball control – as the trailer draws to a close.
