Top Gun is one of the most beloved films of the 1980s, despite being blatant military propaganda. Fans have even dubbed May 13th "Top Gun Day," despite it having no actual connection to the film or its premiere.
But Paramount knows fans feel the need for speed, so they're re-releasing the film in theaters. The week-long run will feature a newly remastered version of the film, presented in Dolby Vision picture and Dolby Atmos sound so you can really see those glistening abs and hear those jet engines roar. It's also perfect timing for the 35th anniversary on May 16. The studio also hopes to build anticipation for the sequel Top Gun: Maverick, which is scheduled to open in November.
The theatrical re-release of Top Gun begins Friday, May 13.
