It seems the pattern is NOT full Ghostrider! I was six when Top Gun came out back in 1986 (my age spoiler right there) and unfortunately for me, neither my mum nor dad saw fit to take me along to my local cinema in Sutton to watch one of the all time classic Simpson / Bruckheimer productions! The movie stars Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, Tom Skerritt, Tim Robbins (if you can spot him before he was famous!), Michael Ironside and a little semi-cameo from Meg Ryan.
Earlier today at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam, the announcement was made equipped with some footage already converted into 3d that the movie will be getting a the 3D treatment (courtesy of Legend3D) and a theatrical re-release! The audience were treated to the aerial flight sequence clip with Danger Zone playing out at volume 11!
I am finding it hard to contain my excitement!! To be honest, I’m, not that bothered about seeing it in 3d although that will be a nice touch, but watching it completely remastered for 21st Century cinemas will be fantastic and I cannot wait!
What do we think of this news? Is it worth re-releasing and what do you think about the conversion from 2D to 3D? Tell us in the comments section below.
And just so you all know, you can be my wingmen (women!) anytime!
Here’s the original trailer from 1986.
