Top Gun: Maverick has earned its second domestic weekend box office victory by earning $86 million in ticket sales, which has ranked it in the top 10 highest-grossing second weekends in domestic box office history.
As reported by Variety, Top Gun: Maverick has now soared to $291 million in North America and has officially become Tom Cruise’s highest-grossing film ever at the domestic box office. Furthermore, the film only dropped 32% from its $160 million opening weekend and has now seen, according to Comscore, the “smallest second-weekend declines for a movie that opened to $100 million or more.”
For comparison, Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness declined 67% in their second weekends and The Batman dropped 50%.
Internationally, Top Gun: Maverick has crossed $257 million and has done its part to help the film reach $548 million globally.
Maverick had little in the way of competition, but David Cronenberg’s Crimes of the Future did have a limited release and it brought in $1.1 million from 773 theaters domestically. Maverick, on the other hand, was playing in 4,751 theaters.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness took second place with $9.3 million domestically, bringing its global tally to $909.4 million globally. The Bob’s Burgers Movie placed third again with $4.5 million, The Bad Guys placed fourth with $3.3 million, and Downton Abbey: A New Era rounded out the top five with $3 million.
