TOP GUN: MAVERICK Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide; First Billion-Dollar Hit Of Tom Cruise's Career

Talk to me Goose! Tom Cruise's Top Gun: Maverick has officially joined the billion-dollar club in less than 30 days, and has become only the second film since Spider-Man: No Way Home to reach the milestone!

Paramount and Skydance's Top Gun: Maverick has officially joined the billion-dollar club, having grossed $1.006 billion in thirty-one days of release ($521.7M domestic; $484.7M foreign). It's now only the second film, behind Sony and Marvel Studios' Spider-Man: No Way Home ($1.901B) to reach that monumental figure since the start of the pandemic. 

The film was already the biggest hit of star Tom Cruise's career, having previously surpassed Mission: Impossible - Fallout, and is now also the first film of his forty-year-plus career to cross the billion-dollar milestone, an absolutely remarkable accomplishment. 

Thanks to universal critical acclaim and a thunderous response from global audiences, both young and old, Maverick has enjoyed some of the strongest holds the industry has ever seen, reminding Hollywood and the world at large that Tom Cruise is a superstar with no equal. 

The Joseph Kosinski-directed blockbuster is expected to tie for first this weekend, with Tom Hanks' Elvis ($30.5M), but it should be a photo finish, and don't be surprised if Cruise ends up winning the battle of the Toms, even in the film's fifth weekend.

Universal's Jurassic World: Dominion, winner of the last two weekends, will dip to third, but is still performing well and has now surpassed $300 million domestic and will cross $750 million worldwide by the end of the weekend, possibly on its way to its own billion-dollar summer.

Fellow Universal title The Black Phone, their co-production with Blumhouse, exceeded expectations and will open in fourth with $23 million, which is an exceptional start on its estimated $16-$18 million production budget. 

While the box office competition is plenty good news for exhibitors, it hasn't been a fruitful endeavor for Disney/Pixar's Lightyear, which will drop to fifth with $17 million stateside, and its worldwide haul now stands at approximately $152.4 million. It'll be one to keep an eye on through the rest of the summer as it should manage to have some legs, but with Minions: The Rise of Gru right around the corner, bringing in family audiences might be easier said than done.

In our review, we said, "Top Gun: Maverick is the must-see cinematic experience of the year! Packed with jaw-dropping aerial sequences, thrilling edge-of-your-seat moments, genuine heart, epic romance, huge stakes, and one of the absolute best performances of Tom Cruise's legendary career, this is the theatrical experience you've been waiting for."

Tom Cruise headlines the feature as Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, with original co-star Val Kilmer returning as Admiral Tom "Iceman" Kazansky. The iconic pair are joined by an all-star supporting cast consisting of Jennifer Connelly as Penny Benjamin, Miles Teller as Lt. Bradley "Rooster" Bradshaw, Jon Hamm as Vice Admiral Cyclone, Glen Powell as Hangman, Lewis Pullman as Bob, Ed Harris as Rear Admiral, Monica Barbaro as Phoenix, Charles Parnell as Rear Admiral Warlock, Danny Ramirez as Fanboy, Manny Jacinto as Fritz, Bashir Salahuddin as Coleman, Jay Ellis as Payback, Jake Picking in an undisclosed role, Raymond Lee in an undisclosed role, Lyliana Wray as Amelia Benjamin, Jean Louisa Kelly as Carole Bradshaw, Greg Davis as Coyote, and Bob Stephenson in an undisclosed role.

Top Gun: Maverick is now play in theaters worldwide!

After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Tom Cruise) is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. When he finds himself training a detachment of TOPGUN graduates for a specialized mission the likes of which no living pilot has ever seen, Maverick encounters Lt. Bradley Bradshaw (Miles Teller), call sign: “Rooster,” the son of Maverick’s late friend and Radar Intercept Officer Lt. Nick Bradshaw, aka “Goose.”

Facing an uncertain future and confronting the ghosts of his past, Maverick is drawn into a confrontation with his own deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who will be chosen to fly it.
