“Top Gun: Maverick” took to the skies in late May and hasn’t looked back. Tom Cruise’s latest release is now the ninth-highest grossing movie of all time at the domestic box office.
“Maverick,” the sequel to the hit 1986 film “Top Gun,” has grossed nearly $650 million in the US alone, a feat that has only been accomplished by a handful of other films.
Just last week, “Maverick” blew past 2012’s “The Avengers” to take sole possession of ninth place on the list, and is within striking distance to pass No. 8 “Jurassic World” and seventh place “Titanic,” according to data from Box Office Mojo.
