Everyone knows that when 3D is added in post, or after principal shooting has been completed, that it’s not nearly as compelling an experience as if it were shot with an actual stereoscopic camera. But that isn’t about to stop the studios from reissuing old movies with a third dimension.
On February 19th Top Gun 3D will ship to consumers for a mere $20. Fear not, for there is a 2D version included as well, and it will still include the remastering that you’ve come to expect. In fact, the movie’s director, Tony Scott worked directly on the project before his untimely departure from this earth; he committed suicide off the Long Beach bridge in California after being diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer.
Also included in the Blu-ray is a six part documentary on the making of the film, offering a behind the scenes glimpse, interviews with Tom Cruise, and 4 music videos. The Top Gun 3D Blu-ray release will be preceded by a 6-day theatrical run at select iMax theaters.
