Critics and experts are in complete shock, and the reason for this is the box office performance of ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ because the collection of the film has not only been good but is also better than the critics’ estimates. It was an advanced prediction that the film would give the best opening, but such an opening has surprised critics.
Top Gun Maverick Box Office: Record-Breaking $126 Millions’ Excellent Opening
Before the release, critics and experts expected a $90 million opening, but with the collection of $126.70 million on its opening weekend domestically in 4,735 theaters, the ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ surprised all critics and experts, and it is record-breaking opening of Tom Cruise’s 40 years acting career.
Paramount Pictures’ ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ has become the highest-grossing debut for Tom Cruise’s film career, surpassing ‘War of the Worlds (2006)’, which opened with $64.9 million. Given a stellar opening, critics and experts expect ‘Top Gun 2’ to become the third biggest film of the year, after ‘Multiverse Of Madness’ and ‘The Batman’, and also listed in the Top 5 films of Tom Cruise’s filmography.
Not only this but the overseas weekend of the film also too well and currently film stands at $300 million global. The notable thing is that Tom Cruise’s box office performance for the last few years was not too well, and many critics believed that Tom Cruise’s career was over, but today ‘Top Gun 2’ has proved that Tom Cruise is still the box office king. So it is true that ‘Top Gun 2’ took just three days to change the opinion of the people.
Apart from the box office, the film received mostly positive reviews from the critics and audience, and it is also one of the most popular films of 2022 on IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes.
