Top Gun is heading back to the big screen on May 13th. The Tom Cruise classic will celebrate its 35th anniversary back in theaters on what has become known as Top Gun Day. The remastered film will air exclusively in Dolby Cinema AMC theaters, playing over 150 screens across the country next week! The release will also feature Dolby Atmos audio, perfect for those flybys and a certain classic Top Gun song.
The original Top Gun first premiered on May 16th, 1986, marking just three days between its officially 35th anniversary and the re-release. This will give the classic film quite the boost in its original box office numbers after it made $356 million worldwide in 1986. For those not quite ready to head back out to the theaters, Top Gun is now available on Digital, 4K Ultra HD, and Blu-ray. These editions have tons of new bonus material, including interviews with Cruise and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, in addition to a fun new featurette that delves into the film’s 35-year legacy.
The news of Top Gun getting a theatrical re-release is just what fans need to get ready for its sequel Top Gun Maverick, which has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Joining Cruise in the sequel is former co-star, Val Kilmer, in addition, toTop Gun newcomers Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell, Jon Hamm, and Ed Harris.
