Top Gun

Just last month we heard the gestating Top Gun sequel was likely not going to come together following the tragic death of director Tony Scott. In addition, the filmmaker's death also left the fate of a potential 3D re-release of Top Gun in limbo. Paramount Pictures wanted to pay tribute to the film and its director, but they didn't want to seem like they were cashing in on his death. Well, a decision has finally been made as Paramount has announced that Top Gun will hit IMAX 3D theaters for an exclusive six-day run starting on February 8th, 2013, and will also serve to hype the film's release on Blu-Ray for the first time. Read on!

Paramount says this of their 3D release of Top Gun via the press release:

"Top Gun was re-mastered for the big screen from high-resolution original negative scans and painstakingly converted to 3D by Legend3D under the supervision of the film’s director, Tony Scott.  Rendered in 3D, the film’s complex, long shots reveal extraordinary depth and clarity, allowing viewers to explore every detail of the action.  From the spectacular aerial dogfights to the intense close-ups in the cockpits, each frame enables the audience to feel a part of the story.

For those who just don't know about Top Gun, the Tony Scott-directed film release from 1986 follows the macho students of an elite U.S. flying school for advanced fighter pilots as they compete to be best in the class and head into the Danger Zone. Meanwhile, one hot shot pilot (Tom Cruise) romances one of his teachers (Kelly McGillis) to the tune of Take My Breath Away. Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards and Meg Ryan also star in the film directed by Tony Scott. This should serve as a fitting tribute to the late filmmaker and one of the most intense airborne thrillers in existence. Will you see Top Gun in IMAX 3D?

    Ayah! Those aviators look awesome. They should have copied those instead of the Wayfarers for RealD glasses.

    I feel the need.......the need for speed. If done right this could be amazing in 3D.

    Maybe the volleyball montage will be less gay in 3D. Probably not though. Another pointless 3D gimmick.

    If Paramount screws it up just this much, they'll be flying a cargo plane full of rubber dog shit out of Hong Kong!
