The 1986 Tony Scott directed film “Top Gun” starring Tom Cruise is coming to Blu-ray 3D on February 19th, 2013 via Paramount Home Entertainment according to an early retailer alert. The release will come in the form of a “combo pack” with a Blu-ray Disc (2D version) and a Digital Copy of the film included. Tech specs and bonus materials for the release have not yet been detailed but stay tuned. The title is available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon* with a $27.99 price tag.
And no, this didn’t just come out of nowhere in some scheme to “cash-in” on the death of the film’s director. In fact, this had been in development before the late Tony Scott took his own life in an apparent suicide earlier this year. The film received a 2D to 3D conversion from the folks at Legend3D, which the late Tony Scott is said to have actually contributed to and been enthusiastic about the week before his passing.
