‘Top Gun: Maverick’ speeds to $600 million at domestic box office

Baku, July 14, AZERTAC

Tom Cruise’s Pete Mitchell keeps soaring to new box office heights, according to Variety.
Paramount’s blockbuster sequel “Top Gun: Maverick has surpassed $600 million in North American ticket sales, a milestone that only a dozen films have ever reached.
Box office revenues currently stand at $601.9 million domestically and $595.6 million internationally, bringing the film’s global tally to a staggering $1.19 billion. Weeks ago, “Top Gun: Maverick” became the first movie of the year (and only the second in COVID times) to surpass $1 billion worldwide.
After nearly two months in theaters, “Maverick” now ranks as the 12th-highest grossing film at the domestic box office. Since the action flick has shown zero signs of slowing down on the big screen, the movie could fly higher on all-time charts. It’ll almost certainly take down the No. 11 spot, which currently belongs to “Incredibles 2” with $608 million, and it’ll likely float past the films in ninth and 10th place, “The Avengers” ($623 million) and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” ($620 million). “Top Gun: Maverick” could even have enough fuel in its engines to near slots seven and eight, held by “Jurassic World” with $653 million and “Titanic” with $659 million.
