Top Gun 3D To Play In IMAX For Six Days In February Then Hit Blu-Ray

Much like the Blu-ray release of Raiders of the Lost Ark was preceded by a short run in IMAX cinemas, so it is with Top Gun. The trick this time is that both re-releases will be in the 3D format.

Here’s a bit of Paramount’s press release:

Top Gun, Paramount Pictures’ 1986 classic from director Tony Scott, producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer, and starring Tom Cruise, takes off on a new adventure with an exclusive six-day 3D engagement in select IMAX® theatres beginning February 8, 2013. The film has been re-mastered for the IMAX® 3D release and subsequent debut on Blu-ray.

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.

Sorry, Kelly McGillis, you don’t get a mention. Serves you right for being a woman over 40 not called Meryl or Helen.

So why’s this IMAX release just six days, then? Why not a round week? Is IMAX having a special Valentines something on the 14th?

Actually, I think they’ll be moving Top Gun out to make space for A Good Day to Die Hard. I don’t think the film has been announced for an IMAX release as yet but now, I’m convinced it’s imminent.

The Titanic 3D conversion is the benchmark that Top Gun would have to beat, if that’s a race we’re scoring.
