Top Gun: Maverick has now made a new record. The film has surpassed the box office collection of the 2018 film Avengers: Infinity War.
Top Gun: Maverick starring Tom Cruise was released earlier this year in May and received great response from the public.
Top Gun: Maverick has amassed more than $679 million in North America, surpassing Infinity War’s $678 million domestic gross, according to Variety.
Top Gun: Maverick has made more than $700 million worldwide, and that’s without having played in China or Russia, two significant international marketplaces.
The United Kingdom ($95 million), Japan ($82 million), Korea ($62 million), Australia ($60 million), and France ($52.8 million) are the top-earning nations outside of North America.
With $1.379 billion in worldwide box office so far, it ranks as the 13th-highest film ever.
The top five US movies of all time are Black Panther ($700 million), Avatar ($760 million), Spider-Man: No Way Home ($804 million), Avengers: Endgame ($853 million), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936 million).
Now the film has become the sixth-highest grosser at the US box office. Top Gun: Maverick has also surpassed Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War’s box office collection.
The film is the sequel to a 1986 super-hit film Top Gun, which starred Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis and Val Kilmer in the lead roles, and was among one of the blockbuster hits of that year. The film has also surpassed Titanic as Paramount studio’s most popular movie with $1.5 billion abroad and $2.2 billion worldwide.
The film has been a box office power since its release in May, as it made $160.5 million on the opening weekend. For 10 weeks, the film remained in the top five of the weekend rankings. It is Tom’s first film to gross more than $100 million in a single weekend and to top $1 billion globally.
