Top Gun 3D trailer brings you back to the danger zone for a limited IMAX 3D release

Jan. 24, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Tony Scott's era-defining aerial action pic, TOP GUN, is set to take flight in theaters once again in IMAX 3D next month. Announcing the "need for speed" goodness is a new trailer that highlights the slam-bang, smash-cut, rip-roaring, bird-flippin', Kenny-Loggins-themed action that only Scott could deliver. The film was originally released in 1986 and became the launching pad to superstardom for Tom Cruise.

In many ways, TOP GUN has become something more than a film. It's hard to watch it today and take it at face value, seeing as it's seeped into every fabric of pop culture, from catch phrases, t-shirts, deconstructions, and slow-motion volleyball (which I'm sure will thrive in 3D). When you look at the legacy of TOP GUN, it's kind of brilliant and overwhelming. From the soundtrack to the style to the performances and dialogue, the film is a staple of the '80's and inspired a new wave of high-octane, macho action flicks, many of which never quite measured up.

Has it lost that loving feeling?:

TOP GUN will play in IMAX 3D for a limited six-day engagement, from February 8 - 13, 2013, before it's blu-ray release on February 19, 2013.

Oh man, that was a good trailer. I love how they had a Don LaFontaine-esque voiceover (less and less movie trailers have voiceovers these days), and if the conversion is done well, this is sure to be a good time. Not a fan of the design for the Blu-ray though (did they just make Top Gun look low-budget?)

RIP Tony Scott.

I love this movie to death but the 3D is pointless. It had me at IMAX but pretty much killed it with the 3D. Miss you Tony!

this is a definitely no go for me at the theater, first, because there is no imax where i live, so, no point on going, and second, because im not paying to see the 3D conversion of a great movie.
why dont they just leave the movies alone, stop with this 3D already!!!!

someone please tell me this is an early april fool's joke!?!

I first saw this piece of shit when it was new and I was just 8 years old. But even that young I could see this was a bad film. Then recently it played in a theater. So I thought to myself "what the heck. It is a classic and Tony Scott has just died, so let's go see it. It can't be as bad as I remember right?" Let me tell you it is far worse! This movie is just beyond awful!! And weirdly overtly homo erotic(don't get me wrong by the way! I have nothing against homosexuals. I work in television

This movie is just beyond awful!! And weirdly overtly homo erotic(don't get me wrong by the way! I have nothing against homosexuals. I work in television so around 80% of my colleagues is gay), which was kinda fun I have to admit. So if this actually is true, I guess it's a great day for all the people who've always wanted to see the volleyball scene in 3d.
