Top Gun: Maverick – Trailer Talk
Thanks to COVID-19, a lot of films started seeing delays to their releases; most films found their way to streaming services, like ‘Spongebob: Sponge On The Run’, ‘Mitchells vs The Machines’ and ‘Mulan’ while others had to wait for the cinemas to reopen, e.g.: ‘James Bond in No Time To Die’. One of the films belonging to the latter is ‘Top Gun: Maverick’
‘Top Gun: Maverick’ sees Tom Cruise reprise the role of Maverick thirty-six years after the original film was released. This time, he is to become the teacher as he mentors a new team of Navy recruits in his own unique way.
While I was never a fan of the original, it’s hard to deny my excitement and interest for the long-awaited sequel. Originally slated for a summer 2020 release, the first trailer was visually impressive. Cinematography and the way in which a film looks has come a long way since the original, and the footage from the first trailer proves that. The full-length trailer that was released yesterday is no exception. While the characters and story don’t hold a personal interest at the moment, it’s the actual aviation footage that piques my interest. And, with the added detail that Tom Cruise does all his own stunts, the flying stunts done within this trailer is incredible.
While I was never a fan of the original, ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ has caught my attention purely because of the aviation footage that is captured within the 2-and-a-half-minute trailer. It looks incredible and the way in which the footage was shot demonstrates the improvements in film technology as well as the way in which films look nowadays. And, even if I don’t plan a cinema trip for this, I hope it does well purely due to the long wait that it’s had to get to cinemas.
