After earning more than $ 800 million at the global box office, Top Gun: Maverick has officially become Tom Cruise’s highest-grossing movie of all time.
As reported by Variety, Top Gun: Maverick soared past Mission: Impossible – Fallout’s 791 million to claim the # 1 spot on Cruise’s resume, and it still has some runway left to go as it heads into its fourth week in theaters and inches closer to the coveted 1 billion milestone.
Top Gun: Maverick’s current global total sits at $ 806.4 million, with 422.2 million of that coming from North America.
In its debut during Memorial Day Weekend, Top Gun: Maverick earned $ 160.5 million domestically. It continued to earn $ 90 million and $ 51 million domestically in its second and third weekend, respectively, and looks to face off against newcomer Lightyear and Jurassic World: Dominion, the latter of which is set to enter its second weekend.
In our Top Gun: Maverick review, we said that it “is good ol ‘cheesy as hell, silly-heroic entertainment with mile-high enthusiasm – a welcome throwback to simpler cinematic times.”
