Before we go any further, let’s first have a look at Tom Cruise in Top Gun 2 trailer.
Tom Cruise will be coming back in one of his most famous roles from the 80s: Captain Peter Maverick. With his love for flying and acting combined in one project, this is a special piece of Tom Cruise’s work. The 57-year-old (who looks like he is not a day over 40) will be playing the role of a pilot instructor who has returned after 30 years of service and refuses to retire.
Tom Cruise starrer Top Gun 2 will release on 26 June 2020.
The first trailer of the movie was showcased at Comic-Con in July.
Are the makers perfecting Top Gun 2 to give Tom Cruise his final fate?
The movie that was supposed to release in summer 2019 was pushed further by a whole year. The reason that the makers cited was very convincing that no one questioned. According to reports, the reason was so that the makers could have enough time to adjust the logistics of presenting flight sequences with new planes.
So, if we calculate the time it took to create the movie since production started in May 2018, it comes out to be around two whole years. We believe the filmmakers wanted everything perfect before Tom Cruise’s character meets his fate.
The second trailer that was released on 16 December (and the one you saw above), is not much different from the teaser that was dropped in July. The plot seems weak. And it seems the makers have calculating Top Gun 2’s success based on cliches from the 1986 movie. The only way to succeed with such a storyline would be a shocking end to the story.
The Funeral… of Maverick?
If you watched the trailer closely, you must have had a glimpse of a funeral in the clip. While the Top Gun 2 trailer then quickly switches to Tom Cruise saluting. While it is a long shot to believe that Maverick too would have a funeral, it would undoubtedly be a massive plot twist. Also, it would explain why the filmmakers delayed the movie by one whole year. It was simply to give Tom Cruise’s character the perfect end.
From the looks of it, the funeral in the trialer seems like that of a high ranking officer. And it is highly anticipated that the service is that of Peter Maverick’s friend from the 1986 prequel of the upcoming movie.
Recreating a Classic
1986 proved to be a good year for the handsome Hollywood actor who wooed his fans as ‘Maverick’. Now after 33 years (plus one), a few raised eyebrows, and striking similarities with the “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” trailer, Maverick is back to meet his final fate.
Tom Cruise debuted in 1981 with ‘Endless Love’. Ever since then he has had a glorious career. In fact, with over three decades of experience, his movies a sight for sore eyes. Even though Tom Cruise’s upcoming movie, Top Gun 2, had a somewhat rocky start, the fighter planes are a sure recipe for success.
