Tom Cruise Surprises San Diego Comic-Con With Top Gun: Maverick Trailer | SDCC 2019

Imagine you were with us in the illustrious Hall H in this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. You’d just spent a solid 45 minutes with Tim Miller and the cast of Terminator: Dark Fate, and already had a pretty good time at the Paramount panel (our actual reactions on that forthcoming.), and then as you stand up, you hear some crazy guy on stage yelling at us to not go any where to keep our butts in our seat.

Gig Patta and I rolled our eyes, only to see a manic Conan O’Brian strutting across the stage. He then went on to talk about some movie that’s been in the making for a long time. He vamped for a solid two minutes talking about how big of a deal this movie was and then said he was introducing the most famous star of all time on stage.

At this point, I was intrigued, waiting to see what the punchline would be for this joke, half-expecting it to be something like Jay and Silent Bob Reboot or a random Comic-Con documentary commemorating the 50th anniversary. And then he yelled. He yelled out the name “Tom Cruise,” and I half-expected to see Guillermo to hop out on stage.

But no, this was no Guillermo. This was Tom Cruise, in the flesh. It was at this moment we realized that Paramount was doing a stealth drop of the Top Gun: Maverick trailer. He said that all the flying stuff we were about to see in the trailer was real…and the lights dimmed, and we saw the following…

As someone who doesn’t exactly hold the original Top Gun close to my heart, I was still impressed by the practicality of the flying being done, and when the familiar theme came on, I couldn’t help but just get a little choked up. I guess I’m sentimental like that.

But what do you think of the trailer? Let us know your thoughts down below!
