Tom Cruise Surprises Comic-Con With 'Top Gun: Maverick' Trailer (Video)

San Diego Comic-Con 2019: Cruise made a surprise Hall H appearance

Tom Cruise made a wholly unannounced appearance In Hall H on Thursday at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 and debuted the first trailer for his upcoming “Top Gun: Maverick.” Watch the trailer above.

The big surprise happened just after the end of the “Terminator: Dark Fate” Hall H panel, which kicked off the first day of Comic-Con in the big room. As the lights went up, Conan O’Brien came out on stage to introduce Cruise to the shocked audience.

Kicking off with dialogue by Ed Harris, the trailer reveals that Peter “Maverick” Mitchell (Cruise) is still a captain, despite the fact that as Harris’ character puts it he “should be at least a two star admiral by now.”

From there we see Maverick flying, naval personnel partying, and what looks like a hint at the rise of drones. “The end is inevitable, Maverick. Your kind is headed to extinction,” Harris says. “Maybe so sir,” says Maverick. “But not today.”

The original action movie , which starred Cruise, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards and Kelly McGillis, followed the exploits of a flight academy and its students. The long-awaited sequel to Tony Scott’s 1986 action blockbuster will follow Cruise’s aviator Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, who is now a mentor to a new generation of U.S. Navy fighter pilots.

“Top Gun: Maverick” is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer for Jerry Bruckheimer Films and David Ellison for Skydance. Cruise also serves as a producer.
