“Top Gun” is getting a 3D conversion

Upon its 1986 release, “Top Gun” was a colossal hit, and a perfect storm of successful 80s movie ingredients, including Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Cold War-era jingoism and Kenny Loggins. But finally, after waiting for a quarter of a century, fans will be able to see “Top Gun” as director Tony Scott no doubt intended: Semi-ironically through dark glasses with after-the-fact 3D grafted onto it.

The Hollywood Reporter has the news that Legend3D will be performing the 3D conversion for Paramount as part of a revenue sharing deal tied to the film’s theatrical re-release. Legend3D Rob Hummel claimed, “We think there is great potential for catalog titles in 3D, but studios have had trouble justifying the expense.” So if you go see this in theaters, you’ll only have yourself to blame when “Weird Science 3D” comes out.

The scene that will most likely lend itself best to 3D conversion, the dogfight with “Danger Zone” playing, was already screened at the International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam. Hummel explained, “I think ‘Top Gun’ lends itself to 3D due to the aerial flight,” but oddly failed to mention the appeal that a 3D volleyball scene could have to a somewhat different audience than the film’s original demographic.

Would you go see a 3D conversion of “Top Gun” in the theaters? What if your admission included a pair of Ray-Ban 3D glasses? Tell us in the comments below or on Facebook and Twitter.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
