Top Gun: Maverick Soars Past $900 Million Globally; 2nd Highest Grossing Paramount Film


Paramount’s blockbuster “Top Gun: Maverick” is still flying at sky-high altitudes, surpassing $900 million at the global box office.


With $901.8 million in the bank, the sequel to Tom Cruise’s 1986 action flick “Top Gun” stands as the year’s second-highest grossing movie worldwide behind Disney’s Marvel adventure “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” ($943 million). At this rate, “Maverick” is poised to overtake the crown in the coming weeks.


Even without playing in China or Russia, the $1 billion mark looks to be within reach. That would be notable because only one other Hollywood movie, Sony’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” has crushed that particular benchmark in COVID times.


“Top Gun: Maverick” has grossed $474.7 million at the domestic box office, making it the highest-grossing movie of the year in the U.S. For the studio, “Top Gun: Maverick” stands as second-highest grossing domestic release in Paramount Pictures history.
