Boring New 'Top Gun' IMAX 3D Re-Release Poster Adds More Sparks
Highway to the boring zone… In just over a week, Paramount will be re-releasing their Tom Cruise action classic Top Gun, directed by the late Tony Scott, in theaters in 3D as a converted re-release. They already released a trailer which means a poster is on the way, and IMPAwards has found the IMAX 3D poster. And boy is it boring. This is pretty much a DVD cover shot replaced with a few extra red strips of "For the First Time Ever in IMAX 3D!" If they're going to hype up how awesome the flying can be in 3D, then why not show exactly that? There's also some extra sparks randomly added at the bottom to make it more exciting.
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. Top Gun in IMAX 3D arrives on February 8th.
