Top Gun Soars Past $1 Billion, overtakes Doctor Strange 2
Paramount & Skydance's all-American blockbuster "Top Gun: Maverick" is as yet taking off in the cinematic world, getting the sought after $1 billion achievement over the course of the end of the week.
It's the first film of the year and just the second in COVID times (following Sony's "Bug Man: No Way Home" with $1.9 billion) to arrive at that benchmark.
It's significantly more great that "Maverick" hit the $1 billion imprint without playing in China or Russia, two significant business sectors.
After only 31 days on the big screen, “Top Gun: Maverick” has become Tom Cruise’s first movie to surpass $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
Previously, 2018’s “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” ranked as the actor’s most successful film with $791.1 million worldwide.
Prior to this weekend, the sequel to the 1986 action flick “Top Gun” was already the highest-grossing movie of the year at the domestic box office with $521 million.
