'Top Gun Maverick' Races Past $1 Billion At The Global Box Office

Mumbai, June 26 - Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise, at the age of 59, has scored an unbelievable milestone at the box office as his action drama film Top Gun Maverick has raced past the $1 billion mark globally.

The Paramount/Skydance movie has become only the second title to reach the milestone during the covid-19 pandemic and the first for Tom Cruise in his entire career. According to Deadline, the movie has scored an estimated $1.006B worldwide, including domestic's (North America) estimated $521.7M and $484.7M from the international box office through Sunday. It took just 31 days to break into a $1 billion global haul.



The sequel to 1986's "Top Gun" scored $900 million last Monday, and a few days prior had topped $800M to become Cruise's biggest movie ever at the worldwide box office. Hailed as one of the greatest movie sequels ever made in Hollywood history, the movie is now the second-highest-grossing movie during the pandemic after "Spier-Man: No Way Home" ($1.89B) worldwide.

Directed by Joseph Kosinski, "Top Gun 2" has been on a record-breaking run since its debut in late May. It scored Cruise's biggest overseas and domestic debuts, and despite the release of "Jurassic World Dominion" in the following weekend, it remained unaffected overseas as well as domestically.

"Top Gun Maverick's" performance is a testament to the work that Paramount's distribution and marketing teams put behind it, while Cruise himself deserves massive credit for visiting several countries to promote the movie. The $1 billion success of TGM becomes even more special as it has come without a single penny from world's biggest movie market China and Russia.

The movie stars Tom Cruise as Captain Pete "Maverick" Mitchell reprising his role from the original, alongside Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, and Val Kilmer. It is set 36 years after its predecessor, it follows Maverick's reluctant return to the United States Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program, where he must confront his past as he trains a group of younger aviators, among them the son of Maverick's deceased best friend.

Stay tuned...
