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.
Those sparks look completely out of place. Is cruise walking next to someone welding something?

The guys doing those posters are not putting a lot of effort into it. Look at the 3 jets at the top: it's the exact same image copy pasted -only the scale and contrast were changed.

Boring poster for a boring movie. Seems fitting. I love Tony Scott, but besides the great visuals there's not much going on in this film.

I love it when a sentence ends with "Ever". It shows a string of uneducated people at the company. Besides, Who would I pay more for fake 3D?

You guys should be more negative.

Well I've never seen it, but I live 20 minutes from an air base so I'm sure it will be a sell out here.

People don't like Top Gun? I'm surprised by the negativity here.

It should be beach volleyball sand being scattered instead of sparks.

these are paid comments dont believe in them. there job is to defame tom cruise on each and every toms artical on google. this started after 2006 when he gave comment against psychatry. they hire group of people to defame him. they write comments from different names. they have nothing else to do.just go and chk on google film was highest grossing movie of the year. they partially stopped these comments. but after the success of mission impossible ghost protocol the restarted. their aim is to make his every film flop even before its release. they did same with jack reacher.
