Tom Cruise took to the stage of Hall H at SDCC this afternoon to surprise reveal the first official trailer for Top Gun: Maverick, the long-awaited sequel to the cult-classic film that catapulted Cruise into superstardom. Check out the trailer above, and read what Cruise had to say regarding the high-octane film, that’s set to once again push the boundaries of what Cruise will do on screen.
“34 years ago, I made a movie in San Diego and shot across the street in a restaurant. I was always asked ‘When are you going to do another one?’ Well, you’ve been very patient with me. I felt like it was my responsibility to really deliver for you.” He continues “Everything you see in this film is very real,” and labels the sequel “a love letter to aviation.”
SDCC is starting to dish out plenty of new reveals, as producer and franchise creator, James Cameron, has confirmed that Edward Furlong will return to the role he made famous, John Conner, for Terminator: Dark Fate. While it was initially rumored to be his likeness that would be used, it has now been confirmed otherwise. He joins fellow Terminator 2: Judgment Day co-stars Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who will also reprise their roles from the 1991 blockbuster, and a new cast consisting of Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna and Diego Boneta.
Lastly, it’s been confirmed that Terminator: Dark Fate will be Rated-R, sending it back to its roots, as many fans have demanded over the years. Terminator: Dark Fate hits theaters on November 1st.

Warner Bros. panel at SDCC was filled to the brim with trailer reveals, and one of the more unexpected of them was the first trailer release for Shazam! from director David F. Sandberg. The trailer is a complete departure for DC with jokes, a light-hearted tone, and a likable hero in Billy Batson.
The cast includes Asher Angel (Andi Mack) as Billy Batson, Zachary Levi (Thor: The Dark World) as Shazam, Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) as The Wizard, and Mark Strong (Kingsman) in the role of Super-Villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

The Wrap has confirmed that an earlier rumor regarding the lineup of director Cathy Yan’s upcoming Birds of Prey movie was fairly spot-on. The team’s lineup will consist of Black Canary, Huntress, Cassandra Cain, Renee Montoya, and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. It’s currently not known whether Montoya will be The Question in the film, or a detective.
The villain of the piece is expected to be Cassandra Cain’s father, David Cain, who is commonly associated with Ra’s Al Ghul, and Cassandra’s mother, Lady Shiva. This all but confirms that Batgirl is not involved as many expected.
Entertainment Weekly is continuing its massive pre-SDCC coverage by revealing yet another new still from the upcoming live-action adaptation of Shazam! We get another look at Zachary Levi in costume alongside Jack Dylan Grazer. This time we get to see the light-up lightning bolt on the heroes’ chest which does a great job of driving home the magical nature of the character.
We should be getting plenty more information on the film, including maybe even a teaser trailer this Saturday when Warner Bros. takes to Hall H in San Diego.
Warner Bros. has revealed that Aquaman is now on Twitter, and alongside it, we get our first official poster for the upcoming film, as well as confirmation of a trailer this Saturday at SDCC. The poster is beautiful, with Jason Momoa on a rock surrounded by the denizens of the deep, and the tagline “Home is Calling” along the top.
I can’t help but get excited by all this information from Aquaman as this is shaping up to be something very special. We’ll find out once and for all on Saturday. Hit the jump for a look at the full poster.
Entertainment Weekly has revealed a first look at one of the seven Kings of Atlantis, with the first being The Fisherman King, played by none other than Djimon Hounsou, who was recently added to the cast of Shazam! as the Wizard after Ron Cephas Jones was forced to depart. Also pictured are the Fisherman Queen (Natalia Safran), Princess (Sophia Forrest) and a royal guard.
“After the fall of Atlantis, some of the kingdoms evolved and some devolved,”explains producer Peter Safran. “This is one that evolved. This is a kingdom that’s primarily artistic and cerebral, with poets and philosophers.”
Entertainment Weekly continues to deliver the goods, this time giving us our first look at two new stills from the upcoming sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, from director Michael Dougherty. The other image gives us our first look at Vera Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown, making her feature film debut. Hit the jump to check out the additional still.
“The world is reacting to Godzilla in the same way we would react to any other terrifying incident, in that we are overreacting,” director Michael Dougherty tells EW about the film. “There’s paranoia and endless speculation about whether he is the only one out there or whether we’re threatened by others like his kind.”
Lego has officially revealed their new Voltron set, and it is quite something. The kit is one of the largest robots that Lego has ever produced, coming in at a massive 2,321 pieces. Based on a design submitted by Lego Ideas user Len_D69, the Lego Ideas Voltron is based on the design first seen in the beloved 1984 animated series, rather than the version currently seen in Netflix and Dreamworks Animation’s Voltron: Legendary Defender.
The set includes the ability to form all 5 lions, as well as Voltron itself, as well as the Blazing Sword and Voltron’s shield. If you’re at SDCC, the Defender of the Universe will cost $180 and be available in limited supplies, or you can pick it up from the official Lego website starting August 1st. Hit the jump for more pictures of the fantastic set.
