Two things immediately stand out: Tom Cruise is ripped, and Top Gun doesn't seem as funny anymore.
A trailer for the revival of the Top Gun series, Top Gun: Maverick, dropped online Friday morning to coincide with the opening of San Diego Comic Con. It sets up Maverick (Tom Cruise) as a "dying breed", the kind of character that's being slowly phased out somehow.
All of that makes for less laughs, basically. There's no one-liners or jokes in the Maverick trailer, but there are a ton of planes, and some nice set shots going through some snowy peaks.
It's not related to Top Gun, but the trailer has made me start thinking about that Microsoft Flight Simulator reveal at E3. When's that coming out again?
Top Gun: Maverick, on the other hand, will be launching worldwide in 2020. Let's hope it turns out as good as the last Mission Impossible.
