Returning to movie theaters for, say, Spiral or Cruella, and learning that the folks at your local AMC were still utilizing cups and popcorn bags promoting the debut of Top Gun Maverick… in May 2020 was one of our favorite moments from the post-shutdown phase of the epidemic. If No Time to Die and Morbius are the front-runners in terms of delays, Joseph Kosinski’s follow-up to Tony Scott’s ’80s masterpiece is a close third. But, nerds, guess what? It’s finally out, and Tom Cruise is ready to lecture you on how you’ve screwed up your television settings yet again. On Tuesday, Paramount released a new trailer for the film.

Pete ‘Maverick‘ Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs after more than 30 years as one of the Navy’s top aviators, pushing the edge as a brave test pilot and avoiding the advancement in rank that would ground him. Maverick meets Lt.Nick Bradshaw, or ‘Goose,’ when he finds himself training a detachment of Top Gun grads for a specific mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen. Maverick is driven into a confrontation with his own greatest fears as he faces an uncertain future and confronts the demons of his past, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
