Cruise revealed the first trailer for the film this summer at San Diego Comic-Con. He said the film is a “love letter to aviation” and the cast and crew worked with the Navy for all of the flyfing in the film. 

The official plot synopsis also hints at a dangerous and possibly life-threatening mission. “Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it,” the synopsis reads. 

Along with Cruise and Teller, the film also stars Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, Val Kilmer and Manny Jacinto.
