The trailer for the much-anticipated Tom Cruise sequelTop Gun: Maverickgets a remake in LEGO, painstakingly recreating the action frame-by-frame. Directed by Joseph Kosinski (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion) and produced by Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible - Fallout), the long-awaited sequel will finally see the light of day on July 2 this year, after being delayed by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Paramount refused to sell Top Gun: Maverick to streaming services, partly due to a commitment to theaters, but also allowing the studio to keep the film for exclusive streaming on Paramount+, which launches on Friday.
Now, YouTube user Onbeatman aka Augustus Danko, has painstakingly recreated the Top Gun: Mavericktrailerin LEGO. The full-length trailer, which reportedly took months to recreate, replaces the real-life footage with LEGO recreations, frame-by-frame, keeping the original audio intact, of course. From the facial expressions on the LEGO characters to the incredible flying action scenes, the entire thing has been made more "awesome" by turning it into a LEGO adventure. The video has already been viewed over 200,000 times, proving the quality of the recreation.
