Top Gun: Maverick, directed by Joseph Kosinski and starring Tom Cruise, has not stopped making splashes since its release.
With $401.8 million in ticket sales through Monday, its 18th day of release, the movie by Paramount and Skydance overtook Marvel and Disney’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness smash hit to become the highest-grossing domestic picture of 2022 thus far.
Doctor Strange 2 now stands at $398,1 million.
This even goes further. Top Gun: Maverick is presently the second-highest-grossing picture of the pandemic era, only behind Spider-Man: No Way Home ($573 million), and the most successful non-superhero film so far.
And Top Gun: Maverick brought in $51.9 million over the weekend of June 10-12, making it the fifth highest-grossing film in its third outing, following Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($52.5 million), Spider-Man: No Way Home ($56 million), Black Panther ($66 million), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($90 million).
The film finished in second place on the weekend of June 10-12, behind only the recently released Jurassic World: Dominion, which had a successful debut with $145.1 million.
With $12.8 million in revenue on Monday, Jurassic World Dominion continues to dominate Monday’s rankings. Next up was Top Gun, which brought in $6.6 million.
At this point, Maverick ties as Tom Cruise’s most successful picture at the stateside box office. It is on track to inch towards the $500 million mark in the domestic market and $1 billion internationally.
