‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Crosses ‘Titanic’ To Become the 7th Highest Grossing Domestic Movie

'Top Gun: Maverick' just surpassed James Cameron's 'Titanic' to become the seventh-highest-grossing domestic movie of all time.

The Tom Cruise sequel has completed its eleventh weekend in theatres, earning $1.9 million on Friday. The movie is predicted to gross $6.7 million over the weekend. Top Gun: Maverick has already made $662 million domestically since its May 27 premiere. Titanic, which was formerly the highest-grossing picture of all time, has grossed a total of $659.5 million in the United States.

Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens is now the highest-grossing film of all time in the United States. Despite having a strong weekend at the domestic box office, Top Gun: Maverick dropped out of the top five for the first time since its debut. The result is that the well-liked film has had the fifth-most top-five weekends in a row overall. With 27 weekends straight in the top five, ‘E.T’ presently retains the #1 slot.

Since there aren’t many major releases in August, Top Gun: Maverick is anticipated to reclaim a top five slot at the American box office as the weeks go on, but it doesn’t appear like the ‘E.T’ position will be challenged. Top Gun: Maverick has already surpassed a number of noteworthy entries to the list, including Black Panther, The Sixth Sense, and The Force Awakens, all of which spent nine weeks in the top 10.

Bullet Train, starring Brad Pitt, won the top place at the American box office on Friday with $12.6 million. The studio anticipates a $30 million weekend total, although it may miss by approximately $2 million. Jo Koy’s Easter Sunday, another newcomer to the box office, came in at number six on Friday with a little over $2 million.

Top Gun: Maverick came in at number seven, but given how well-liked it is, its popularity may see an uptick in the future. Nobody is surprised by Top Gun: Maverick’s success considering that its predecessor, which had a $15 million budget but made $357.3 million, is widely regarded as a masterpiece. Top Gun, which debuted in theatres in May 1986, was followed by Top Gun: Maverick, which came out over 40 years later.
