Sure, who doesn't have the "need for speed" nowadays. But if you want to take it up a notch -- preferably, in a military jet that's piloted by cocky Tom Cruise. Well, here's some good news: Starting on February 8th (in a limited six-day theatrical run), you can buy IMAX tickets to Tony Scott's landmark action flick "Top Gun," which has been painstakingly converted into eye-popping 3D. Why IMAX-3D, you say? Because lets face it, going through the danger zone in lousy 2D is simply not good enough. Yeeha, Jester's dead! Yet, he never looked so real.
Shortly following its re-release in theaters, "Top Gun 3D" will be shipped out on Blu-Ray Discs starting on February 19th. It's just enough time to find some flashy 3D glasses that Maverick would have approved.
The macho students of an elite US Flying school for advanced fighter pilots compete to be best in the class, and one romances the teacher.
