TOP GUN: MAVERICK Producer On Why He Thinks The Movie Has Beaten AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR's Box Office Record

With Top Gun: Maverick shooting down Avengers: Infinity War at the North American box office, veteran producer Jerry Bruckheimer has shared his take on why the movie has beaten the likes of Marvel and DC.

We knew it was coming, but this weekend, Top Gun: Maverick passed another impressive box office milestone when it passed Avengers: Infinity War in North America to become the sixth-highest grossing movie of all time. 

With a whopping $679 million, next up for the Top Gun sequel is Black Panther's $700 million. That's one target it might struggle to shoot down, but no one ever expected it to get this far, to be fair! Ultimately, it probably won't come close to Avatar's $760 million, but that's far from the end of the world, and Top Gun: Maverick easily remains the biggest movie of Tom Cruise's career. 

Worldwide, the movie sits at 13th place with $1.3 billion, meaning it sits behind Avengers: Age of Ultron's $1.4 billion (that's one Marvel blockbuster that may be at risk from Maverick and company). 

Top Gun: Maverick producer Jerry Bruckheimer recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly and shared his candid thoughts on why the sequel has managed to outperform this year's Marvel movies. 

"That's what it's all about; it's about the emotion, it's about bringing Iceman back, it's about seeing a real movie. You're in the F-18 just like those actors are," he says. "They were trained for three months to be able to get into an F-18. You can see the struggles of what they're doing, what they're going through. That's all real, that's not made-up."

"I think audiences have been seeing so much CGI, which is wonderful, I go see the same movies, but it's also nice to see the real deal, and to be part of a camaraderie of characters that get up in the sky and have to be as good as they can be. The audiences love the Marvel, they love the DC stuff. They're beautifully made by really talented people."

"Sometimes you want to see something that's real, and that's what Top Gun gave us. These aviators are out there protecting our country right now, flying around the world, and you're taking a ride with them," Bruckheimer continued​​​​​​. "You're seeing what they do, you're seeing what their life is like, and the trials and tribulations that they have to go through. You're actually experiencing it with our actors."

It's an interesting perspective and, agree or disagree, there's no denying Top Gun: Maverick's insane level of success. Something about it has clearly resonated with moviegoers, and they've embraced this action blockbuster in a bigger way than even recent hits like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder
