Comic-Con fans got a treat Thursday when one of the world's biggest movie stars showed up and teased a long-awaited film, People reports. "I'm feeling that loving feeling, I'm definitely feeling that loving feeling from you all," Tom Cruise told an audience after surprising them in San Diego. He said fans have requested a Top Gun sequel for 34 years and "you guys have been very, very patient with me." At that, he unveiled the trailer for Top Gun: Maverick. "You are the first people in the world to see it," he said. "And everything you see in this film is for real."

Cast member Jon Hamm told Collider in May that the movie is being shot "in, I think, 6K. So it's incredibly hi-def. The aerial footage is mind-blowing. ... There's not a lot of CG. Those guys are really up in planes and getting thrown around in multiple Gs." And another actor in the movie, Miles Teller, told the Wrap in June that it was hard keeping up with 57-year-old Cruise. "I'm certainly trying, but it is difficult. Just the volume of it," he said, adding that "there's been nothing on this film that didn’t take a lot of training to accomplish." Top Gun: Maverick is slated to drop June 26, 2020. (More movies stories.)
