In the trailer, a Cruise weathered by more than three decades of service, is confronted by the fact that he can't get a promotion and refuses to retire. "You should be at least a two-star admiral by now. Yet here you are, captain," a uniformed and authoritative-looking Ed Harris tells him. "Why is that?"

We see a series of shots of Cruise flying through terrain from snowy mountains to barren land to open water as dramatic music plays. Apparently he still likes the danger zone. 

Top Gun: Maverick is slated for a summer 2020 release and also stars Val KilmerDanny RamirezJennifer Connelly and Jon Hamm

Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is directing the sequel.
