Tom Cruise hit anti-woke movie “Top Gun: Maverick” has just smashed a box office record after it passed $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales.

“Top Gun: Maverick” is now Paramount’s biggest live-action movie in 15 markets, including the U.K., Australia, France, and Brazil.

It is the studio’s highest-grossing original release at the domestic box office behind Titanic.

According to The Hollywood Reporter: “Director Joseph Kosinski’s film passed the barrier after finishing Sunday with an estimated domestic total of $521.7 million and $484.7 million overseas for a global cume just north of $1 billion.”

“Top Gun: Maverick enjoyed a boost in its fifth weekend thanks to being re-released in select Imax and premium large-format screens.

“The Paramount and Skydance release grossed $30.5 million domestically and $44.5 million overseas for a weekend total.”

According to Variety:

“With another $484.7 million at the international box office, ‘Maverick’ has grossed $1.006 billion worldwide.

“Those ticket sales were enough to overtake Disney’s Marvel adventure ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ ($943 million) as the highest-grossing movie of the year at the global box office.

“’Top Gun: Maverick’ has been crushing box office records since opening in theaters over Memorial Day weekend.

“Over the extended holiday, the film earned $160.5 million in its first four days of release, marking the first movie in Cruise’s 40-year career to surpass $100 million in a single weekend.

“According to Paramount, repeat customers and Imax screens have been fueling momentum in the weeks since its debut.”
