Tom Cruise Top Gun: Maverick Crosses $1 Billion Collection Worldwide!

Top Gun: Maverick is a 2022 American action-drama film directed by Joseph Kosinski and written by Ehren Kruger, Eric Warren Singer, and Christopher McQuarrie, based on a scenario by Peter Craig and Justin Marks. Actor Tom Cruise reprises his role as “Maverick” Mitchell in the sequel to Top Gun (1986), with Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, and Val Kilmer (who also reprises his role). Maverick confronts his history while teaching a bunch of younger TOPGUN grads, including the son of his murdered closest buddy.

This sequel to Top Gun was announced by Paramount Pictures in 2010. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott, as well as actors Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer, were all contacted about reprising their roles from the previous film. They all agreed to do so. The first draft of the script was completed by the middle of 2012. After Scott’s death by suicide on August 19, 2013, the film’s pre-production was placed on hold. Scott’s memory is honored in the film’s credits.

In June 2017, Kosinski was brought in to write a fresh screenplay. From May 2018 to April 2019, principal photography took place in California, Washington, D.C., and Maryland. IMAX-certified 6K full-frame cameras were used to shoot the film. It was originally slated to be released on July 12, 2019, but was pushed back because to the COVID-19 epidemic and scheduling issues.

First and foremost, Top Gun: Maverick has earned excellent reviews from critics and fans alike; it presently has an 8.6 IMDb rating and a critic rating of 96 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Secondly, the film has shattered box-office records. More than US$1.1 billion has already been made worldwide for the Top Gun sequel, which translates to little under $1.6 billion in Australian dollars.

Top Gun: Maverick, which will be released in 2022, is presently the highest-grossing movie globally, surpassing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Jurassic World: Dominion, and The Batman. In order to compete with Top Gun: Maverick in the highest-grossing movie of all time race, it has a long way to go. Avatar, the 2009 picture that currently holds the record, has earned a total of US$2.8 billion at the global box office. According to Box Office Mojo, Top Gun: Maverick is presently the twenty-ninth-highest earning film of all time.
