Two weeks before the opening of the Cannes festival, where it will be presented out of competition, the trailer for Top Gun: Maverick was unveiled at CinemaCon on Thursday, April 28.
36 years after the first part of the adventures of Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, Tom Cruise is back at the controls of the US Navy’s fighter planes. Thursday, April 28, the first images of the new film Top Gun: Maverick were unveiled at CinemaCon on Thursday, April 28. After Tony Scott, it is Joseph Kosinski who takes over the production of this new part.
Maverick, one of the United States Navy’s top fighter pilots, played by Tom Cruise, is back and continues to push his limits. He is now responsible for training young graduates of the Top Gun school as part of a special mission. Faithful to the original film, the action scenes filmed aboard real US Navy fighter planes follow one another, in addition to a large number of references to the work of Tony Scott.
