Anti-Woke Top Gun Sequel Puts Hollywood on Notice, Becomes America’s Highest-Grossing Movie of Year

Tom Cruise has put “woke” Hollywood on notice as his pro-America “Top Gun” sequel has just become the highest-grossing movie of the year.

“Top Gun: Maverick” has soared past $400 million at the domestic box office, making it the biggest movie of the year in the U.S.

Tom Cruise’s anti-woke hit has $401.8 million in American ticket sales.

It passes “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” ($398 million) to take the top spot.

The movie is also doing great business internationally, taking in an additional $362 million to bring its global total to a staggering $783.8 million.

And with ticket sales still going strong industry experts think the movie will cross $900 million and may pass $1 billion in sales.

The movie also got a ringing endorsement from Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

He said before he watched the new movie:

“Original Top Gun is a great movie.

“Just rewatched. Looking forward to seeing the sequel.”

He was asked later, “Sequel better or worse than og?”

Musk said: “Better.”

From Variety:

“Top Gun: Maverick” already stands as Cruise’s highest-grossing film in North America, but it’s close to becoming the actor’s biggest movie at the global box office.

“Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” which collected $791 million worldwide in 2018, currently stands as his highest-grossing blockbuster of all time.

Cruise’s other top-earning tentpoles include 2011’s “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” ($695 million globally), 2015’s “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” ($683 million globally), and “War of the Worlds” ($603 million globally).

“Top Gun: Maverick” opened over Memorial Day weekend and set a holiday record, collecting $160.5 million in its first four days of release. 

It was the first movie in Cruise’s 40-year career to surpass $100 million in a single weekend.
