Two months after its release, Paramount/Skydance’s “Top Gun: Maverick” continues to climb up the all-time box office charts, passing “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and “The Avengers” to join the top 10 highest grossing films ever in North America.
“Top Gun: Maverick” will take the No. 9 spot on that list on Thursday and will pass $625 million in domestic grosses this weekend and $1.25 billion worldwide.

‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Surpasses ‘Titanic’ as Paramount’s Top-Grossing Domestic Release Ever
After becoming the largest Memorial Day weekend opening in box office history, “Top Gun: Maverick” has posted among the strongest weekend holds ever seen by a summer blockbuster. The film still has not seen its weekend totals drop below $10 million after eight weekends, and no weekend drop has exceeded 45%.
“Maverick” has become Tom Cruise’s first $1 billion hit in his career and is the second highest grossing film ever for Paramount behind only “Titanic.” The star and studio will reunite next year for “Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning,” a two-part film that will be released in July 2023 and June 2024.
