Hollywood star Tom Cruise's recently released action film 'Top Gun: Maverick' has surpassed the overall collection of Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War' and has become the sixth highest grosser film at the domestic box office history.
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 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.
'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.
