‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Beats Titanic to Become Paramount’s Highest-Grossing Domestic Movie Ever

Tom Cruise’s smash hit pro-America movie “Top Gun: Maverick” is continuing to make history.

The anti-woke film has put Hollywood on notice by clearing $600 million dollars at the domestic box office.

It has also just surpassed Titanic to become Paramount’s most successful North American movie ever in its 110-year history.

Paramount Pictures issued a statement that said: “Paramount Pictures today announced that Top Gun: Maverick’s first-run release has surpassed Titanic’s first-run release as the studio’s highest-grossing domestic film in its 110-year history, with over $601.919M in US box office to-date.

“In its original 1997 release, Titanic grossed $600.788M.

“This latest milestone comes on the heels of Paramount Pictures dominating the box office in the first half of 2022.

“The studio is currently #1 in domestic box office so far for the year, with nearly $1.04B in cumulative gross and over 24% of the market share—the studio’s best year since 2014,” the statement said.

Brian Robbins, CEO of Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon, said:

“For 110 years, Paramount Pictures has produced and distributed some of the most iconic films in Hollywood history, including the all-time classic Titanic, which marks its 25th anniversary this year.

“Top Gun: Maverick is a phenomenal motion picture, and we take deep pride in celebrating this tremendous achievement alongside Tom Cruise, our filmmakers and cast, our marketing and distribution teams, and, of course, all the new and original Top Gun fans, without whom this wouldn’t have been possible.”

“In June, the movie passed $1 billion at the global box office, the first Tom Cruise film to achieve the milestone and the first to do so this year,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“To date, the movie has earned $595.6 million in international receipts for a cumulative total of nearly $1.2 billion, globally.
