The figures propelled the film to the year’s No. 1 spot, just ahead of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which earned $398.1 million. It is also lead actor Tom Cruise’s highest-grossing film domestically.
Top Gun: Maverick is now the second-highest-earning film since the pandemic began, with Spider-Man: No Way Home at No. 1 with $573 million. Both films were released exclusively in theaters.
These earnings are also notable because they were still record-breaking after the film’s third weekend in theaters. From June 10-12, Top Gun: Maverick earned $51.9 million, which was the fifth-highest amount any movie has earned that far from release. Star Wars: The Force Awakens saw $90 million in its third week, and Black Panther garnered $66 million.
That same week, Jurassic World: Dominion was released, earning $145.1 million. Top Gun: Maverick was still the No. 2 film at the time.
