BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
It's not uncommon for props used in classic films to wind up being saved and preserved, ensuring that they last forever as a symbol of the movie's deep cultural impact. Of course, the size of the prop can be a very important factor in its preservation, and this is why Tony Scott's Top Gun is having a bit of trouble trying to save one of their more notable ones.
With over 7 billion people in the world and an infinite Internet at many of their disposal, nothing should come as a surprise to us anymore. It takes a very specific kind of invested indulgence to widen our eyes, but Twitter user “555 µHz” has done just that by dedicating that account to posting the entirety of Tony Scott’s 1986 cornball action romp Top Gun, one single frame at a time. I feel the need…the need for the least speedy procedure for getting something done ever.
In less than a month Top Gun will return to theaters for its limited IMAX 3D engagement. This will be followed up by the release of a two-disc Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray 2D set, which hits shelves not long after Maverick flies back into theaters. A trailer promoting the film's return to theaters has arrived and it does a fine job of reminding us of some of the more iconic big screen moments in the film, which have the potential to look pretty great on the giant IMAX screen in 3D.
Top Gun is making a return to theaters. What's more, those who love seeing Tom Cruise' Maverick take flight will get to see it happen in IMAX 3D come next year when Tony Scott's 1986 action drama returns to theaters for a limited engagement ahead of its Blu-ray release.
The Times adds that Cruise and Scott were scouting Top Gun locations for the possible sequel, which Scott was going to direct. Now those sequel plans appear to be on the backburner … where, if I’m being honest, they should stay.
Tony Scott, best known for directing Top Gun and Enemy Of The State passed away this afternoon in what's being reported as a suicide. Reports state that the Hollywood legend parked his Prius on the side of the road by the Vincent Thomas Bridge near Long Beach, climbed a fence and jumped off without hesitation.
While Cruise didn't explicitly say that he had plans to star in the film - when asked what kind of role he would play his response was "I don't know, we're working on it." - he did confirm that he is involved in the process of getting a Top Gun 2 made. Talking about how he became involved, the actor said that it began with a desire to work with Tony Scott again, and that it blossomed from there.
It was announced this morning at the International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam that the legendary Goose, Ice Man, and Maverick will be returning to the big screen in a 3D conversion of Top Gun. Of course we shouldn’t get too excited yet as Clash of the Titans taught us that 3D conversion can be the enemy, but the idea of this movie back on the big screen is cause for joy and celebration.
Tom Cruise has been in more than 20 different films since 1986, and a lot of them were better than Top Gun. It doesn’t matter. Ask anyone to name his most famous role and odds are they’ll answer simply, “Maverick”. The story of a few men who like to play shirtless, full contact volleyball and fly fighter planes in their free time has endured, no matter how ridiculously cheesy almost all of it now is by modern standards. Top Gun is twenty-five years old this year, and it’s coming back.
