Conan O’Brien made a surprise appearance at the end of Paramount’s Terminator:Dark Fate panel in Hall H at Comic-Con International in San Diego today to introduce surprise guest Tom Cruise.
Cruise, grinning from ear-to-ear then showed off the world premiere of the trailer Top Gun:Maverick, the long-awaited sequel to Cruise’s 1986 hit.
“34 years ago , I made a movie in San Diego and shot across the street in a restaurant,” said Cruise to great cheers. San Diego is a special place for Top Gun and the sequel was shot here last summer.
“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,” said Cruise who called Top Gun “a love letter to aviation.”
Top Gun:Maverick opens on June 25,2020.
