Paramount Pictures has announced that it will release a 3D version of Top Gun for a six-day run in select IMAX theaters starting February 8, 2013.

Originally released in 1986, the classic starring Tom Cruise has been digitally remastered from high-resolution original negative scans and was painstakingly converted to 3D under the supervision of the film's director, the late Tony Scott, the studio said.  "Rendered in 3D, the film's complex, long shots reveal extraordinary depth and clarity, allowing viewers to explore every detail of the action," according to the studio. "From the spectacular aerial dogfights to the intense close-ups in the cockpits, each frame enables the audience to feel a part of the story."
