First footage of TOP GUN: MAVERICK revealed at Paramount's CineEurope presentation

GregHarmon GregHarmon Managing Editor Good morning, gentlemen, the temperature is 110 degrees.

We’re going to keep this one short and sweet folks.

Paramount released exclusive footage of TOP GUN: MAVERICK! Unfortunately, said footage was unveiled to industry exhibitors attending Paramount’s CineEurope presentation. Which means, my hanging onto every word indeed comes from a secondhand source who simply reports “attendees were blown away by the footage”.

So what exactly blew attendees away? Right now my mind is fluttering with goodness, from gorgeous aerial shots in 6K to a montage featuring Ed Harris, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell, and Jon Hamm with their names displayed in Top Gun's signature machine font accompanied by "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'. Seriously.

It should be noted that as part of Paramount’s unveiling, Distribution President Mark Viane walked out to a smoke-filled stage in FULL flight gear, hyping 1986’s sequel as a “unique visceral and cinematic experience.” Whatever that means.

Joseph Kosinski will direct from a script co-written by script whisperer Christopher McQuarrie, Peter Craig (The Town), Justin Marks (The Jungle Book), along with Thor and X-Men First Class writers Ashley E. Miller and Zack Stentz. Harold Faltermeyer is also returning to score.

Top Gun: Maverick is slated for release June 26, 2020.
