TOP GUN: MAVERICK Is Gunning For A Mighty Box Office Record Currently Held By AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

Top Gun: Maverick continues finding success at the box office, and it's now shot down a record held by James Cameron's Avatar. Next up? Avengers: Infinity War! Read on for the latest updates on the movie...

Top Gun: Maverick has greatly exceeded expectations at the box office, and looks set to be the biggest movie of 2022. With $662 million at the North American box office, it's now sunk Titanic to become the seventh-biggest movie of all time. 

Internationally, the sequel's total sits at $690 million, taking its global cume to $1.3 billion. It remains Tom Cruise's only $1 billion blockbuster, and with extremely positive word-of-mouth, it continues bringing money in on a weekly basis. Honestly, we're not surprised, especially as it's a feel-good action blockbuster that delivers some classic adrenaline-fueled action. 

Even more impressive is the fact Top Gun: Maverick is now taking aim at a record held by Avengers: Infinity War, the sixth highest-grossing movie with $678 million. 

Whether it goes any higher remains to be seen, as it would next need to overcome Black Panther ($700 million), Avatar ($760 million), Spider-Man: No Way Home ($804 million), Avengers: Endgame ($853 million), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936 million). The only one likely at risk is probably Black Panther.

Top Gun: Maverick remained in the top five for ten weeks after opening with $160.5 million, and in a quiet August, it's not showing the usual signs of slowing down. 

"Top Gun: Maverick is the must-see cinematic experience of the year!" our own Rohan Patel raved earlier this 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."

2022 has definitely seen the box office recover following the pandemic, and this movie has been at the forefront of that. By the time all is said and done, it's likely to be the year's biggest release, though Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Avatar: The Way of Water are two major threats to that crown.

Top Gun: Maverick is now playing in theaters.
