TOP GUN: MAVERICK Becomes Paramount’s Highest-Grossing Movie Ever

By Movieguide® Contributor

TOP GUN: MAVERICK has set a new record! 

The movie starring Tom Cruise as Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell just passed $600 million in North American ticket sales—a milestone that only 12 other movies have ever reached. 

TOP GUN: MAVERICK is still in theaters, and is hugely popular, so it seems likely the movie will keep moving up the list of highest-grossing movies. 

Paramount Pictures is also celebrating because TOP GUN: MAVERICK has surpassed the first run of TITANIC, making it the studio’s highest-grossing film in its 110 years of making movies. 

“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, Paramount’s president and CEO. “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.”

Tom Cruise’s TOP GUN: MAVERICK continues to rise above the competition.

The Paramount and Skydance production starring Tom Cruise recently surpassed the $1 billion mark this past weekend.

The TOP GUN sequel is only the second movie released post the COVID-19-related shutdowns to surpass $1 billion. SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME made $1.9 billion. However, TOP GUN: MAVERICK earned the impressive milestone without the aid of significant markets in China and Russia, which did not play the patriotic blockbuster.

Cruise celebrated the achievement via his Twitter: “To all the films in release, to all the studios, and to all the exhibitors: congratulations. To the audience: thank you for venturing out and allowing us to entertain you. See you at the movies.”
