The film is the sequel to a 1986 super-hit film ‘Top Gun’, which starred Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis and Val Kilmer in the lead roles, and was among one of the blockbuster hits of that year. Top Gun: Maverick has also surpassed ‘Titanic’ as Paramount studio’s most popular movie with $1.5 billion abroad and $2.2 billion worldwide. Yet, thanks to stellar word-of-mouth and repeat customers, ‘Maverick’ continues to defy the odds. And there’s a chance the movie will continue to fly higher on box office charts.

But “Maverick” is no stranger to overcoming the impossible, as per Variety.
