Top Gun: Maverick movie is still breaking records. Sorry, Avengers: Infinity War, but as its 13th weekend in theaters begins, the Tom Cruise-led Top Gun: Maverick has officially knocked it out of the sixth slot on the all-time box office chart. Maverick has earned $679 million domestically as of Friday, August 19, surpassing Infinity War’s $678 million domestic total from the previous day. In a top five that includes other IP movies like Black Panther ($700 million), Avatar ($760 million), Spider-Man: No Way Home ($804 million), Avengers: Endgame ($859 million), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936 million), Maverick, a sequel that was released more than three decades after the original, is now on the outside looking in.

The announcement of Top Gun: Maverick movie milestone came shortly after Paramount announced a “Fan Appreciation Weekend” event, during which the movie released in a few cinemas in different formats, including IMAX. A behind-the-scenes look at the movie was included in the supplementary material for these viewing, and some theaters distributed unique posters. Maverick has been a tremendous success for Tom Cruise, Paramount, and the company as a whole. The movie surpassed Titanic ($600 million) during its theatrical run to become the distributor’s highest-grossing domestic film of all time. It’s also the highest grossing movie of 2022.

Top Gun: Maverick came out in 2022

American action drama Top Gun: Maverick movie came out in 2022. Ehren Kruger, Eric Warren Singer, and Christopher McQuarrie wrote the script, which was based on a scenario by Peter Craig and Justin Marks and is the follow-up to the 1986 blockbuster Top Gun. Along with Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer, the movie also stars Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, and Ed Harris in their respective roles from the first movie. As he prepares a group of younger TOPGUN graduates—including the son of his late closest friend—for a perilous mission, Maverick confronts his past.

In 2010, Paramount Pictures announced plans to create a Top Gun sequel. Tony Scott, the director, Jerry Bruckheimer, and Cruise were all requested to return. A draft of the screenplay came from Craig in 2012, but Scott passed away later that year, putting the project on hold. Later, the movie happened in Scott’s honor. Production began after Kosinski helmed the director position in 2017. Principal photography, which used IMAX-certified 6K full-frame cameras, took place in California, Washington, and Maryland between May 2018 and April 2019. Due to the intricate action sequences and the COVID-19 pandemic, the initial release date of July 12, 2019, endured postponement.
