Even before the cinema release «Top Gun 2 Maverick» breaks the first all-time record — cinema news

Paramount Pictures

In North America, Top Gun 2: Maverick will open in 4,732 theaters this weekend. That is a new record. Never before has a film been shown in so many cinemas at the same time. Disney’s » The Lion King » remake held the previous record with 4,725 cinemas at the start. Most recently, » Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness » was shown in 4,534 cinemas, which was the highest value since the beginning of the corona pandemic.

In Germany, too, «Top Gun 2: Maverick» will have a really big start and around 700 copies will be in use, which is on a par with films like «Doctor Strange 2″ or » Dune » (although there have already been larger starts in this country: » James Bond — No Time To Die » had over 800 copies in use).

Another record will follow the Mega-Start

With this big start behind him , Tom Cruise will break a personal record. Because it will definitely be the best US start for him. Even the most conservative and cautious forecasts assume that «Top Gun 2» will gross at least $ 90 million in the first four days in the United States. Our partner site BoxOfficePro even assumes a starting weekend between 98 and 125 million dollars.

Tom Cruise’s most successful start to date in the USA is Steven Spielberg’s » War of the Worlds » from 2005 with almost 65 million dollars. It’s also the biggest US hit of Cruise’s career, grossing $234 million. That, too, will clearly beat «Top Gun 2».

Of course, preliminary total box office forecasts are always difficult and characterized by great uncertainty, because how the audience reacts to the film also plays a role. Nevertheless, BoxOfficePro assumes that «Top Gun 2: Maverick» will end up with a minimum, i.e. in the worst case, 280 million dollars at the North American box office. The action sequel is even credited with a total of up to 395 million dollars if it runs optimally.

«Top Gun»: Tom Cruise continues one of his biggest hits strongly

Incidentally, the original » Top Gun » grossed $180 million in the US. But you have to keep in mind that cinema tickets were still significantly cheaper in 1986. If you put ticket prices in relation to box office, you have to assume that Tony Scott’s «Top Gun» is the most watched Tom Cruise film in US cinemas.

«Top Gun» was also a mega hit in Germany. Here, where tickets sold are not traditionally collected, the Navy aviator action story attracted 4.3 million people to the cinemas. More successful Tom Cruise films were only » Rain Man » (6.1 million) and » Mission: Impossible 2 » (4.4 million). «Top Gun 2: Maverick» will certainly not reach these numbers, but even in this country, many people will dare to go to the cinemas.

The FILMSTARTS review of «Top Gun 2: Maverick»

Because “ Top Gun 2: Maverick ” is also really good. In our review, we call it «one of those rare cases where a sequel is even better than the original.» The strong finale, towards which the entire film is worked towards, plays a large part in this. And of course the aerial action is once again great as the perfect mix of CGI and handcrafted scenes where the cast were in real jets.

From tomorrow, May 26, 2022, » Top Gun 2: Maverick » will be officially in German cinemas. The film is already showing in previews tonight.
