“Top Gun: Maverick”: the biggest box office success of Tom Cruise’s career


“Top Gun: Maverick” literally reached the heights! The new film starring Tom Cruise grossed $156 million in its first four days of release. With the long weekend, due to “Memorial Day”, celebrated this Monday (30), the sequel to the 1986 action movie surpassed Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End”, which was released with US $153 million over the 2007 long weekend.

The film is not showing in China and Russia. In total, “Top Gun: Maverick” grossed $248 million worldwide. The film is the highest-grossing domestic debut in Cruise’s 40-year career, and his first to surpass $100 million on its opening weekend. “War of the Worlds,” which opened to $64 million in 2005, was previously Cruise’s biggest opening weekend.

At a time when Marvel movies dominate the global box office, Cruise managed to get people to go to the movies to see something that didn’t involve superheroes. According to Variety, the audience over 40, the most reluctant to return to theaters throughout the pandemic, was one of the most expressive groups in the audience of the new “Top Gun: Maverick”. And probably the younger audience gave it ratings due to the positive reviews.
