Internationally, Top Gun: Maverick has generated more than $700 million — and that’s without playing in China or Russia, two major overseas markets. Outside of North America, top-earning territories include the United Kingdom ($95 million), Japan ($82 million), Korea ($62 million), Australia ($60 million) and France ($52.8 million). Globally, it’s the 13th-highest grossing movie ever with $1.379 billion to date, Variety reported. Tom Cruise Will Star in an Original Song and Dance-style Musical That He is Currently … – Latest Tweet by Film Updates.

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. Can the ‘Top Gun’ follow-up take down 2018’s blockbuster Black Panther and its $700.4 million tally to crack the top five domestic grosser of all time?

Top Gun 2 is likely to continue selling tickets because the film does not have a ton of competition on the horizon. It’ll be fairly desolate at the box office until November when Black Panther: Wakanda Forever opens in theatres Disney is likely to re-release the original superhero sensation in anticipation of the follow-up, which could propel Black Panther’s grosses even higher. But “Maverick” is no stranger to overcoming the impossible, as per Variety.
