Tom Cruise in new Top Gun: Maverick poster for long-awaited sequel to 1986 blockbuster

Tom Cruise is the focal point of a new promotional poster released in promotion of Top Gun: Maverick, the long-awaited sequel to 1986’s action film Top Gun.

In the shot, the A-lister, who plays Maverick in the Air Force action drama, is pensively standing by an classic aircraft watching a pair of fighter jets ascend into the sky.

Cruise and Val Kilmer return for the sequel to the 1980s hit, which also features an ensemble cast including Jon Hamm, Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris, Miles Teller and Glen Powell.

The original featured Kilmer, Kelly McGillis and Anthony Edwards, with Tim Robbins and Meg Ryan in the extended cast. 

A new trailer is due to be dropped Monday morning for the film, which is directed by Joseph Kosinski.

A preview for the film was unveiled this past July at Comic-Con giving fans an in-depth glimpse at the sequel, which picks up decades after the 1986 box-office hit and features actor Teller as the son of Edwards’ pilot Goose, who is killed during a training exercise in the first movie.

It opens with stunning visuals of Tom manning an F-18 jet flying over a sandy desert as it stays very close to the ground.

’30 plus years of service,’ says a high-ranking official played by Ed Harris. ‘Combat metals, citations – only man to shoot down three enemy planes in the last 40 years.’

He continues: ‘Yet you can’t get a promotion, you won’t retire and despite your best efforts, you refuse to die.’

In the trailer, Maverick doesn’t seem too pleased with what he is hearing but knows better than to retaliate. 

‘You should be at least a 2 star admiral by now but here you are a captain, what is that?’ Harris lectures Tom’s Maverick.

‘It’s one of life’s mysteries, sir,’ says Tom, looking youthful as ever, says, tongue-in-cheek.

The action star is seen again in his plane wearing his Maverick helmet as he takes off from the aircraft carrier with other jets surrounding him.  

The clips then moves seamlessly to a rousing montage where Tom puts on his leather jacket, aviator glasses and rides his high-powered Kawasaki Ninja H2R motorcycle. 

The new film will explore drone technology and Maverick, now a flight instructor, struggling to adapt as he mentors a new generation of U.S. Navy fighter pilots.

Tom did all his own motorcycle stunts but when it came to the flight scenes, the actor apparently wasn’t allowed to fly the F/A-18 Hornets used because the U.S. government does not permit civilians to fly military craft. 

Iconic: Maverick was a key role early in Cruise's career, leading to more leading roles in films such as Cocktail, Days of Thunder and Born on the Fourth of July

One of the most jaw-dropping scenes in the trailer showed Cruise flying through a snowy mountain range. 

‘The end is inevitable Maverick … you're a dinosaur – your kind is heading for extinction,’ Harris’s character told Maverick, hinting at the military’s move to drone-based remotely controlled craft.

But Maverick doesn’t bend: ‘Maybe so, sir – but not today.’ 

Top Gun Maverick is slated for release June 26 2020.
