A brand new Top Gun: Maverick trailer highlights Tom Cruise's return as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell. With less than two weeks to go before the Joseph Kosinski blockbuster hits theaters, Paramount is continuing its marketing efforts to keep the hype going until the Top Gun sequel premiere. In a new promotional spot, Cruise's daredevil pilot takes center stage as he returns to the character he last played more than three decades ago.

The highly-anticipated sequel to Tony Scott's Top Gun is finally releasing in theaters on May 27 after a series of delays. Top Gun: Maverick will see Cruise's Maverick still working at the same flight academy he trained in, but now, as an instructor himself. Among his students is the son of his former RIO Nick "Goose" Bradshaw (Anthony Edwards), Bradley "Rooster" Bradshaw (Miles Teller), who isn't exactly fond of him. Aside from this core conflict, the follow-up blockbuster will also delve deep into Maverick's psyche as he's forced to re-examine his life and deal with deep-seated internal turmoil that he has long tried to ignore. 

Shared on Top Gun's official Twitter page is a brand new Top Gun: Maverick trailer. Clocking in at just 15 seconds, the video focuses on Maverick's daredevil attitude both on the ground and up in the air, reminding viewers that he may have aged, but his devil-may-care attitude is still very much intact.  

While the general public has to wait several more days before seeing the Top Gun sequel, critics reviews have already been released and they're all generally positive. Much of the marketing for Top Gun: Maverick focuses on the fantastic stunts and action scenes that the film's cast and crew worked on for months, so the glowing reviews these scenes received was somehow expected.  -Screen Rant
