Top Gun 1986 4K

47 Replies, 12777 Views

As Top Gun’s Sequel is getting closer to release, Paramount Pictures is re-visiting the original on May 19th in the US with A new 4K transfer with HDR (UHD Disc only) and The dreaded Dolby Atmos. (On both remastered and UHD discs) I don’t mind color grading as much or the light DNR Process Paramount pictures like use on certain shots and some opticals. If you know Paramount by now they barely if use the Atmos format on older films but this Quite an exception after all it’s Top Gun, an audio experience like no other it’s an audio experience like no other. The problem is that a new sound design in the Atmos mix might rear its ugly head. (New jet engine sounds, new explosions,ETC) and of course no Standard 5.1 mix to balance it out or Original Dolby Stereo Mix for audio purists. If you want to check it out that’s fine On digital if it comes out early. But I’m waiting May 19th To see pictures and you guys to respond.Could have a winner in video wise but a disaster in the audio Dept. and you know certain people they would rather have the original audio or something close to it rather than a new shiny mix that would anger those people.

Last thing Tony did was sign off on the remaster, so they had better be respectful

Dumb question, is this based on the same scan and/or use the same color timing as that 3D BD? I know Tony Scott approved of that before he died, but it has a different look to previous transfers.
It seems they have almost the same color timing:

The thing that concerns me is that you can see grain in the 3D bluray, but not in the new Bluray from the new 4k master.

Is it just me or can you see the picture frames in the background cut off in the 3d conversion lol!

It's not you but if you look carefully you'll the wall on the right isn't the same wall as the one with the pictures on it.

I see it too, but I think that's just because of the differing room heights since the portrait is on a staircase whilst the room the camera is in has a much lower ceiling.

Where did the grain go?
Looking at the reviews on Blu-ray.com, the remastered BD UHD do have some differences. The screen caps above I presume are taken from the 4K remastered BD and not the UHD itself?
