    HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. – Celebrating 25 years of the need for speed, the action-packed, sexy and breathtaking thrill-ride TOP GUN soars onto a
    Blu-ray/Digital Copy Combo on May 10, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment. The story of an elite group of pilots competing to be the best in their class and earn the title of “Top Gun” captured the imagination of a generation and earned a worldwide box office of over $350 million. Tom Cruise is superb as the cocky but talented pilot known as Maverick and Kelly McGillis sizzles as the civilian instructor who teaches Maverick a few things you can’t learn in a classroom. Featuring a sensational soundtrack with unforgettable songs from the 80s including Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” and Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone”, the film also stars Val Kilmer,
    Anthony Edwards and Meg Ryan.


    The TOP GUN Blu-ray/Digital Copy Combo includes a six-part documentary on the making of the film, a behind-the-scenes featurette, a survival training featurette, interviews with Tom Cruise, four music videos, commentary by producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Tony Scott, co-screenwriter Jack Epps, Jr. and naval experts, a look inside the real “Top Gun” and more.

    Sounds identical to the current Blu-ray, only with a digital copy tossed in.

    Don't have it on Blu yet, so I will watch the one that is out now and see if I can get it cheap. That is if the extras are the same.

    It looks like the extras are the same. Everything listed in Ron's post (except the Digital Copy) is on the back cover of the current Blu-ray. The DTS-MA track is also 6.1

    This is mine, since my old copy got jacked last year. I will have to apologize profusely to the people living below and to the side who may get blasted out of their chairs.

    I think I'll pick up the existing disc while I can still get it without a useless digital copy.

    I thought the HD DVD has a Dolby Digital Plus soundtrack rather than a lossless one, but I could be wrong about that. I have it only on HD DVD but will have to check the specs when I go back downstairs.
