Paramount Pictures released the second Top Gun: Maverick trailer. While the previous Top Gun: Maverick trailer focused on the plot, this second trailer was heavy on flight footage.
As we mentioned in our first post, Mav is back with a story that is most likely entertaining and pretty fanciful. While it is highly unlikely that he would still be in the military as a Captain over 30 years later, Mav still looks spry in this latest clip. In fact, he somehow looks nearly identical to the way he did back in the mid-80s. About the only thing that has changed is that the Navy’s most famous fictional pilot has upgraded his F-14 Tomcat for a F/A-18 Super Hornet (Although we’ve heard rumors that the F-14 makes a cameo). This clip shows Mav back in the cockpit, deftly teaching students how to fly the F/A-18 Super Hornet.
This latest trailer doesn’t really reveal any new story lines other than Mav returns to teach the next generation how to fly. Still though, it gives avgeeks everywhere something to look forward to for next summer. Based on this preview, the high fidelity F/A-18 footage is sure to delight, even if the plot turns out to be corny.
Top Gun: Maverick flies into theaters on June 26, 2020.
