Announced last week for a July 29 arrival on Blu-ray, Paramount has now officially confirmed specs for 'Top Gun,' which will outgun the earlier HD DVD version with multiple high-res audio formats and several new-to-high-def bonus features.
Unlike the bare-bones HD DVD (released last November), the Blu-ray edition will port over all of the supplements found on the previous special edition DVD release, including audio commentary (with producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Tony Scott and co-screenwriter Jack Epps, Jr.), the featurette "Danger Zone: The Making Of Top Gun," a multi-angle storyboard comparison, still gallery, music videos and TV spots.
Tech specs include 1080p video, English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio (identical to the HD DVD) and in a first for Paramount, a DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 6.1 Surround option.
Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.99.
