The sporting event in Miami, Florida also saw the premiere of new teasers for Fast & Furious 9; Marvel’s forthcoming television shows; and No Time to Die, which is expected to be the longest Bond film to date.
Joining Cruise in the new film is Ed Harris, whose high-ranking official can be seen calling lead character Maverick – now an instructor attempting to get his head around drones – a “dinosaur”.
As hoped, Cruise rocks the bomber jacket and sunglasses alongside new cast members Glen Powell (Set It Up), Lewis Pullman and Jon Hamm.
Miles Teller is also in the film playing Maverick’s new protégé and the son of Goose, who was played in the original by Anthony Edwards.
Val Kilmer also reprises his role of Tom “Iceman” Kazansky.
Top Gun: Maverick, directed by Oblivion’s Joseph Kosinski, is released 17 July 2020.
