There’s a way to get an extra hour of Top Gun: Maverick Aerials that you won’t see anywhere else

Based on the early box office figures, many people are already heading to the cinemas to see the anticipated Tom Cruise sequel Top Gun: Maverick. The film had been delayed for years (for good reason, according to Cruise), but now that theaters are in full swing, Paramount decided to unleash the fury of Joseph Kosinski’s sequel to give viewers a renewed need for speed after a 36-year hiatus. and the film does not disappoint. Reviews were solid, including the one submitted by our very own Eric Eisenberg. And box office records are under threat this Memorial Day weekend. But Kosinski told CinemaBlend about a special way to watch Top Gun: Maverick that requires finding a unique cinema and enjoying up to an hour of unseen footage.

ScreenX is a theatrical presentation where the image is spread across three screens side by side. They create a panoramic view that completely envelops the audience and creates an atmosphere even more immersive than IMAX. However, most features are not filmed with an extended horizontal ratio, so they have to fill those side screens with other footage. Not Top Gun: Maverick. When Joseph Kosinski guest-starred on CinemaBlend’s official podcast, ReelBlendhe told the hosts:

Because I had six cameras in the cockpits, I have these side angles that we use occasionally, but not all the time. We’re also releasing the film in a format called ScreenX, which is a three-screen format where the walls of the theater become one image. Usually they need to create these movies in CG and fill them in or add colors or blurry images. I actually had cameras pointing to both sides. So in the ScreenX version, you also get an hour of live-action side footage. So instead of going vertical, let’s go horizontal. And there’s even a version where they do ScreenX plus 4DX. So if you find a theater with 4DX and ScreenX, you get three screens and you get the moving chairs and the smoke and the snow and all the stuff that happens with the 4DX experience.
