Top Gun Success

The Top Gun sequel is expected to surpass $650 million domestically, which is right behind Jurassic World’s $652 million. It’s likely that Top Gun: Maverick ‘s box office performance will be able to outdo the dinosaur flick’s total, making it seventh biggest film domestically.

As for other milestones, it’s also just behind Avatar and Titanic in terms of tenth-weekend performances. It’s expected to pull in $8.83 million, which is only short of those two films. That’s a pretty huge success for the film, which has continued to draw an audience so long after its initial release on May 27th, 2022.

The film became the second movie since Avengers: Endgame to earn over £1 billion at the global box office. It’s Paramount Pictures’ highest grossing movie of all time. It’s also Tom Cruise’s most successful film ever.

A synopsis for the film reads “After more than 30 years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. Training a detachment of graduates for a special assignment, Maverick must confront the ghosts of his past and his deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who choose to fly it.”
