Top Gun 3D to launch world's first purpose-built virtual reality cinema

Now you can be Maverick. Or Iceman. Not Goose. Never Goose.

Every day, we inch closer towards the inevitable. Eventually, we'll all be wandering around with virtual reality headsets, flailing into the air as we escape the daily grind.

With that in mind, how do you feel about the world's first dedicated VR cinema? Paramount Pictures, alongside California-based start-up Bigscreen, are set to offer a sneak preview of this brave new world on Sunday, 3 December when Top Gun 3D transports users to the skies themselves.

As first reported by Deadline, those with any brand of VR headset can sign in to bigscreenvr.com and take their virtual cinema seat in an authentic customised theatre - complete with posters on the walls - as the testosterone-fuelled Tom Cruise classic takes flight.

Not only that, but users will find themselves sat next to a virtual audience, with the chance to chat before the movie starts.

Just don't talk during the film, eh? It might be the future, but don't be that guy.
