Top Gun: Maverick continues to fly high.
According to a report from the Hollywood Reporter, Top Gun: Maverick cleared $600 million dollars at the domestic box office this week, beating Titanic, and becoming Paramount’s most successful North American movie of all time.
It has also cleared $1 billion dollars worldwide.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
The domestic box office milestone has been accomplished by only a handful of titles, largely Marvel films. Currently, The Tom Cruise movie ranks 12th in all-time North American ticket sales, with the 11th and 10th spots held by Incredibles 2 ($608 million) and Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($620 million), respectively.
Paramount is also celebrating the movie as the studio’s highest earner at the North American box office to date, surpassing Titanic‘s $600.7 million. (Studio re-releases of the James Cameron movie have since brought its total domestic gross to $659 million.)
Paramount President and CEO Brian Robbins released a statement on the milestone.
“For 110 years, Paramount Pictures has produced and distributed some of the most iconic films in Hollywood history, including the all-time classic Titanic, which marks its 25th anniversary this year,” said Brian Robbins, president and CEO of Paramount Pictures. “Top Gun: Maverick is a phenomenal motion picture, and we take deep pride in celebrating this tremendous achievement alongside Tom Cruise, our filmmakers and cast, our marketing and distribution teams, and, of course, all the new and original Top Gun fans, without whom this wouldn’t have been possible.”
