For now, Tom Cruise and Top Gun Maverick seem unstoppable as the sequel to the 1986 cult film is a hit at the box office. The feature film still dethrones one of the biggest hits of all time.
He was in a good position to do it, and that’s it, Top Gun Maverick topped one of the biggest movie hits of all time. A short film directed by James Cameron where we already know the end of the story even before viewing.
Top Gun Maverick sinks the Titanic
With 662 million dollars collected at the American box office, Top Gun Maverick becomes the 7th highest grossing film of all time on this soil. It thus surpasses Jurassic World and its 653 million but above all Titanic of james Cameron with his $659 million.
From now on, the film will try to seek out and surpass another Marvel feature film: Avengers Infinity War. And he could well pull off that feat. This part of the Russo brothers earned 678 million, which is not that far off. Provided of course that this sequence of Top Gun is maintained.
On the other hand, the top 3 seem unattainable:
- Star Wars : The Force Awakens – $936.6 million
- Avengers : Endgame – $858.3 million
- Spider-Man: No Way Home – $804.7 million
There where Top Gun Maverick could have a hard time and go down in the rankings, it’s during the re-release in dark rooms of Titanic in 2023. Worldwide, it is certain that millions of spectators will seize the opportunity to see it again in the best conditions. At this point, the movie worn by Tom Cruise has grossed $1.3 billion worldwide.
