The First Top Gun: Maverick Trailer Has Tom Cruise Pulling Off Face-Melting Jet Stunts

And it looks like there are some shirtless sports, too.

It seems that Tom Cruise's Pete "Maverick" Mitchell has spent the last 33 years being a regular loose cannon—pulling off some sick stunts in jets rather than, you know, working his way up in the military.

Cruise revealed the first trailer for Top Gun: Maverick today, which opens with our Ray Ban-wearing hero getting scolded by a commander played by Ed Harris. Maverick's career sounds like it has been cool as hell and not at all involved playing by the Navy's rules.

And thankfully, we get to see Cruise in the cockpit pulling some serious Gs. Before you ask, yes, that is actually Cruise performing vomit-inducing barrel rolls.

“Everything you see here is for real,” Cruise said while introducing the trailer today.

As if we'd expect anything else from the guy who climbed the tallest building in the world and jumped out of a plane from 25,000 feet in the air.

Elsewhere, the film also stars Miles Teller as Bradley Bradshaw, the son of Anthony Edwards' Goose. Val Kilmer returns as Lt. Tom "Iceman" Kazansky.

But, what does a fighter pilot actually do in a time when drones do most of our fighting?

“The end is inevitable Maverick, your kind is headed for extinction,” Harris’ character says.

“Maybe so sir, but not today,” Maverick responds.

Let's just hope the Navy still allows shirtless volleyball.
