Top Gun Maverick: Action blockbuster breaks another record

Top Gun 2: Maverick in the film review: Unexpectedly great cinema blockbuster - the action genre is alive!  (1)

Celebrated in May this year Top Gun: Maverick after numerous postponements, it finally made its debut in cinemas worldwide. The action blockbuster not only received outstanding reviews, but also creamed at the box office. Shortly after its launch, it broke the record for Tom Cruise’s most successful film to date. But it should not the only record stay.

New record for Top Gun: Maverick

Flushed last weekend Top Gun 2 another few million in the box office and now has a global turnover of $1.24 billion. This is not only an impressive achievement in itself, but also represents a new record. No other Paramount Pictures film has made more money so far. The previous leader in this category was the action film Transformers: Age of Extinction, which grossed $1.1 billion worldwide.

A imminent end of this success is currently not foreseeable. Top Gun: Maverick is currently still in the top 5 of the US cinema charts, despite great competition. Overall sales should therefore increase again noticeably over the course of the next week, maybe the film can the 1.3 billion mark crack.
