Maverick star flies high in first trailer for new movie

Top Gun: Maverick star Glen Powell is taking to the skies once again, this time with Marvel‘s Jonathan Majors, in the epic new trailer for Devotion.


Directed by JD Dillard (whose own father was a Naval aviator), this film is an aerial war epic based on Adam Makos’s bestselling book of the same name. It tells the harrowing true story of two elite US Navy fighter pilots during the Korean War. Their heroic sacrifices would ultimately make them the Navy’s most celebrated wingmen.

Majors plays Naval aviator Jesse L. Brown, while Powell plays fellow pilot Tom Hudner. The film chronicles the unlikely friendship — the kind that crosses racial lines of demarcation in the 1950s — between the two.

The trailer opens with a close up of Majors’ Brown chastising himself, “You ain’t never landing that plane. You ain’t shit!”

And after some beautiful shots of some intricate flight and war sequences, the camera cuts over to Powell.

“It’s good to know the men you’re flying with, to see what they’re fighting for,” says Powell’s Hudner. When asked who he fights for, he replies with a smile, “I’m hoping to find out.”

As the footage plays out, we see glimpses of Brown’s struggle as a Black Naval aviator, as he says: “Can’t tell you how many times people have told me to give up and quit; die even. That’s why you can’t always do what you’re told. If I did, I wouldn’t be here.”

This is not Powell’s first time around fighter planes. He recently flew through the skies as Hangman in Top Gun: Maverick. Majors, meanwhile, appeared as Kang the Conqueror in Marvel’s Loki.

The two stars are also joined in this film by singer Joe Jonas, Christina Jackson and Thomas Sadoski.

Devotion is due in cinemas later this year.
