‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Cruises Past $900 Million at Global Box Office

In the nostalgia-fueled movie, Cruise’s Pete “Maverick” Mitchell returns to the cockpit for the first time in decades to train a new group of cocky aviators for a deadly mission. Joseph Kosinski directed “Top Gun: Maverick,” which has been loudly embraced by critics and audiences alike. Miles Teller, Glen Powell, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Connelly and Val Kilmer, who played Iceman in the first “Top Gun,” round out the cast.” />
"Top Gun: Maverick" is now the highest-grossing Cruise movie in 23 markets, including the United Kingdom, Australia and Brazil. The action-packed tentpole has been similarly popular overseas, where it has generated $427.1 million.
After only 25 days on the big screen, "Top Gun: Maverick" also stands as Cruise’s biggest movie at the global box office, passing 2018's “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” which was previously the actor’s most successful film with $791.1 million worldwide. At this rate, "Maverick" could become his first movie to surpass $1 billion in global ticket sales.
That would be notable because only one other Hollywood movie, Sony's "Spider-Man: No Way Home," has crushed that particular benchmark in COVID times. Even without playing in China or Russia, the $1 billion mark looks to be within reach.
With $901.8 million in the bank, the sequel to Tom Cruise's 1986 action flick "Top Gun" stands as the year's second-highest grossing movie worldwide behind Disney's Marvel adventure “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” ($943 million). At this rate, "Maverick" is poised to overtake the crown in the coming weeks.
"Top Gun: Maverick" has grossed $474.7 million at the domestic box office, making it the highest-grossing movie of the year in the U.S. For the studio, "Top Gun: Maverick" stands as second-highest grossing domestic release in Paramount Pictures history.
Paramount's blockbuster "Top Gun: Maverick" is still flying at sky-high altitudes, surpassing $900 million at the global box office.
According to Paramount, repeat customers have been fueling that momentum. By its fourth weekend in North American movie theaters, 16% of the audience has returned more than once and 4% has returned three times or more.
