With 7.65 million dollars on Tuesday, -44% compared to last Tuesday and +15% compared to Monday, Top Gun: Maverick earned $409.5 million after 19 days at the domestic box office. This places it (without inflation) in 33rd place between iron man 3 ($409 million in 2013) and wonder woman ($412.5 million in 2017). It will likely make the top 30 tomorrow when it tops $417 million. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. He’s already passed Marvel’s domestic cume Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which (with a current run-up of $399.5 million) is itself expected to exceed $400 million domestic today. Meanwhile, assuming a continued 52.6/47.4 domestic/foreign split, the $170 million legacy suite is $778 million, beyond the two The Batman ($770 million) and no time to die ($774 million).
That makes action drama directed by Joseph Kosinski, starring Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, Jon Hamm and Glen Powell, Hollywood’s third-highest earner in the Covid era behind Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ($930 million) and Spider-Man: No Coming Home ($1.9 billion). He is fifth overall behind these two and China Hi Mom ($835 million) and Battle at Changin Lake ($911 million) but give it time. Oh, and barring luck, that will pass too Mission: Impossible – Fall ($792 million in 2018) tomorrow to become Tom Cruise’s highest grossing worldwide. Assuming there are no major changes, it will surpass $800 million worldwide on Friday. On Saturday or Sunday, it will likely become Cruise’s biggest inflation-adjusted domestic earner (beyond the $440 million adjusted total of Superior gun) as it aims to end weekend four after $450 million.
As noted following its colossal $160.5 million domestic and $300 million worldwide debut, Top Gun: Maverick should mark the first time since Cruise Mission: Impossible 2 ($215 million domestic and $545 million worldwide) in 2000 that a real-world action movie topped at least the domestic box office for the summer. It’s still far from Doctor Strange 2 and I still wouldn’t count Jurassic World Dominionbut even Spider Man ($403 million domestic and $821 million worldwide) was first domestically but third globally (behind second Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings films) in 2002. It will surely end the summer as the biggest national incomer, and only Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in November and Avatar: The Way of the Water in December are serious threats.
It’s already the highest-grossing non-fantasy action movie of all time (more or less if you count Titanic as “share”) in unadjusted gross domestic revenue. Its already passed celestial fall ($303 million), American sniper ($350 million) and Furious 7 ($353 million). Yes, The black Knight ($533 million) and Black Panther ($700 million) contain virtually no supernatural/fantasy elements, but are costumed DC/Marvel superheroes. Damn, Top Gun: Maverick can be passed The dark knight rises‘ Cumulative $449 million by Sunday anyway. It sold more domestic tickets than any James Bond film except The golden finger and Thunder ball. In terms of inflation-adjusted gross receipts, we can debate what qualifies as “real-world action” (Smokey and the bandit, the infernal tower, etc.) once we see if Top Gun: Maverick will end closer to 500 or 550 million dollars.
