‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Joins Billion-Dollar Box Office Club in a First for Tom Cruise

Top Gun: Maverick has joined the billion-dollar club at the global box office.

It’s the first Tom Cruise film to achieve the milestone, and the 50th Hollywood movie overall, not adjusted for inflation.

Director Joseph Kosinski’s film passed the barrier after finishing Sunday with

an estimated domestic total of $521.7 million and $484.7 million overseas for a global cume just north of $1 billion.

Top Gun: Maverick enjoyed a boost in its fifth weekend thanks to being

rereleased in select Imax and premium large-format screens. The Paramount

and Skydance release grossed $30.5 million domestically and $44.5 million overseas for a weekend total.

The sequel is only the second Hollywood title of the pandemic era to cross $1

billion behind Sony and Disney’s Spider-Man: No Way Home ($1.89 billion).
