You don’t need a pilot’s vision to see the highway to the danger zone, with the Tom Cruise movie Top Gun getting a special Blu-Ray release for the 25th anniversary of the 1980s classic. The latest revamp for the anniversary celebration of the iconic film depicting the lives of United States Naval Aviators is primed to hit stores on August 30th, 2011
‘Top Gun’ put the afterburners on Tom’s career, launching him into the stratosphere of movie acting. The new release does the same for the film, packing in new features including audio commentary from director Tony Scott, super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, co-writer Jack Epps, Jr. and several navel experts. Other features include multi-angle storyboards from the film with an optional commentary by Scott, interviews with Tom Cruise, music videos of hugely popular songs from the film soundtrack by Kenny Loggins (“Danger Zone”) and Berlin (‘Take My Breath Away”) as well as behind-the-scenes featurettes.
Paramount Home Entertainment packaged the two-disc 25th Anniversary Edition inside an eco-case along with a digital copy of the movie you can play on your computer. In all, this ‘Top Gun’ Blu-ray is a total film experience!
