Top Gun: Maverick, a recently released action movie starring Hollywood star Tom Cruise, has overtaken the entire box office earnings of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War to rank sixth all-time in the United States.
According to Variety, helmed by Joseph Kosinski, ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ has collected over $679 million in North America, overtaking ‘Infinity War’ which collected $678 million at the domestic box office.
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.
The movie is the follow-up to the 1986 smash hit “Top Gun,” which starred Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, and Val Kilmer in the key roles and was one of the year’s biggest box office successes.
