That ‘Top Gun’ IMAX 3D Re-Release Now Has a Release Date, Goose

That strangely obvious Top Gun IMAX 3D re-release news was announced way back in September of 2011, but we’ve heard scarce little about just when we’ll get to see everyone’s favorite volleyball scene play out in the biggest cinematic format possible since then. Until now! Good news, fans of classic ’80s schlock cinema, as Paramount has just announced that the re-release will hit screens for a limited, six-day-only engagement on Feburary 8, 2013.

The film will only be available in select IMAX theaters, so perhaps start thinking about your tickets now (also, perhaps you should also start planning your cosplay look, while you’re at it). The re-master was overseen by the late Tony Scott, and the conversion is promised to “reveal extraordinary depth and clarity, allowing viewers to explore every detail of the action.”

Is six days just not long enough for you? Never fear, the Top Gun Blu-ray 3d and Blu-ray 2D sets arrive on February 19, 2013.
