Record start for «Top Gun Maverick» Tom Cruise surpasses himself — cinema news

Paramount Pictures

There were indications: Even before the start of “ Top Gun 2: Maverick ”, the late sequel broke the first record, because never before had a film started in more cinemas in the USA (namely in a whopping 4,735). Now «Top Gun 2» has actually broken all records — at least if you look at Tom Cruise ‘s career .

The superstar, probably one of the last in Hollywood, has so far not had any sensational starts, as is known from mega blockbusters á la «Avengers» or «Avatar». But with «Top Gun 2» he has now surpassed himself: 151 million dollars to start in the USA? Record for Cruise. $109 million in the rest of the world? Record. 260 million worldwide? A record too, of course.

Memorial Day record: yes or no?

The long weekend in the USA was of great help for the strong start: Today, May 30, 2022, is Memorial Day and long weekend holidays in North America traditionally have strong viewership.

However, there is uncertainty as to whether the US box office numbers are sufficient to break the previous Memorial Day record. If it really is «only» $151 million, that would not be enough for «Top Gun 2″ studio Paramount to beat the previous record holder. That’s why competitor Disney has already announced that it will continue to hold the record with 153 million from » Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World’s End «.

This will probably only be finally clarified in the next few days when the final figures are available. The question of how far the fighter jet wings “Top Gun 2” can still carry remains exciting. After all, “ Jurassic World 3 ” is already the next blockbuster in the starting blocks.

«Top Gun 2» in Germany

Ascension Day was also a public holiday in Germany and «Top Gun: Maverick» was released in 699 cinemas, with 610,000 tickets including previews sold, as Blickpunkt:Film reports.

That makes Top Gun 2 the third best start of 2022 (behind Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness and Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore) and the best start for a Tom Cruise movie in 17 years (since War of the Worlds” from 2005).
