A first trailer for the long-awaited Top Gun sequel Top Gun: Maverick has debuted online. Click below to watch it:
Top Gun was released in 1986 and starred Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer and Kelly McGillis and told the story of a group of students at the United States Navy's elite fighter weapons school, who compete to be best in the class.
Joseph Kosinski, best known for directing Tron: Legacy, takes charge of the sequel, which sees Cruise and Kilmer return, with Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell
and Ed Harris joining the cast.
The film takes place 34 years after the events of the original and pits Cruise's gifted, but cocky Peter "Maverick" Mitchell as the new flight instructor of Top Gun, in which he guides Bradley, son of his one-time best friend Goose, who seeks to become an aviator much as his father was.
Top Gun: Maverick will be released into UK cinemas on July 17th in 2020.
