Tom Cruise surprises Comic-Con with trailer for Top Gun sequel
Tom Cruise has made an unexpected flyby at San Diego Comic-Con to debut the first trailer for Top Gun: Maverick.
The audience in the 8,000 seat room went wild for Cruise Thursday afternoon. He closed out what had been billed only as a panel for another throwback sequel, Terminator: Dark Fate.
Cruise says all the flying in the trailer is real and that Top Gun: Maverick is a love letter to aviation.
The filmmakers worked with the Navy for the film, which is currently in production.
Top Gun: Maverick is expected to hit theaters next June. Val Kilmer, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell and Miles Teller co-star.
Cruise said Comic-Con was the perfect place to premiere the trailer. He shot the original some 34 years ago in San Diego.
