Update - Paramount has issued a new trailer for Top Gun 3D:
David, 3D is not ending as evidenced by this weeks CES. All new UltraHD(4K) displays had capability for 3D and one even used the left eye/right switching to allow viewing of 2 different programs at the same time. Until holograms come to the living room, I will continue to buy 3D players, displays, games, and movies.
Best movie ever without a sequel ! I want somebodies UV copy !!!!!

This movie was SO LAME. But, I first saw it at a 3 day movie marathon in 2002 (People sat in an old theater and didn't stop watching films to make Guiness Book, but you could buy a ticket for the whole weekend and come and go at your leisure for like $5!), and though I haven't seen it since, I will go see the theatrical 3D re-release of it. The reason is, as much as I thought the plot sucked, the aerial sequences blew my mind. And that was sitting in the back row of a 1920's built movie theater that was lucky to have a wide screen and rear speakers. I can only imagine how this will be in a modern cinema
You can tell who all the assholes are in life by trying to stop something that doesnt hurt them in the least (3D) and is something that makes others quite happy. I have never seen the movie and 3D is actually making my buy it.
If you're going to buy Top Gun, buy it for the movie itself, not because it's in 3D. If Attack of the Killer Tomatoes is being released on blu-ray in 3D, are you going to buy that too? If you truly wanted to see Top Gun, you would've made an effort to see the movie a long time ago in 2D, the way Top Gun was originally meant to be seen.
It's true. My philosophy is that if the movie was never conceived in 3D, it's hard for me to justify watching it for anything other than the novelty of it, which will probably fade over time.
A few exceptions, the James Cameron stuff converts well to 3D cuz he's a pioneer. The Pixar movies look great in 3D after post-conversion. And the new blockbusters are made for 3D. It's not going anywhere, but I'd buy this Top Gun release for the 2D remaster more than anything else.
Yea, the weak photoshop cover is the first thing I noticed too. That's obviously Tom's head on some stock/model body. At least they didn't use the "peekaboo I'm behind you" shot where they shrunk Kelly McGillis' head. ;-)
