What a flight of fancy «Top Gun 2 Maverick» breaks 2 (!) more all-time cinema records

Paramount Pictures

It was to be expected that Top Gun 2: Maverick would hit the box office. But that the sequel to the 80s cult film would set so many records was probably not on the screen. The first record already existed before (!) the theatrical release, then we reported, among other things, on the best start of a Tom Cruise film ever and the best Memorial Day start of all time. But now two more impressive records have been set.

«Top Gun 2» is the most successful Tom Cruise film in the USA

With domestic box office earnings now exceeding $300 million, Top Gun 2: Maverick is already the highest-grossing Tom Cruise film of all time in US cinemas. That’s significantly more than the previous record holder, » War of the Worlds «, which took in $235 million in the States.

And «Top Gun» is also well on the way to becoming the Tom Cruise high-flyer worldwide. To do this, the roughly 792 million that “ Mission: Impossible — Fallout ” brought in would have to be cracked. After the first two weeks, the latest cruise blockbuster is already at 557 million and another record suggests that this number will be significantly higher…

«Top Gun 2» hardly loses altitude

In the US, «Top Gun 2» grossed an incredible $90 million on its second weekend. That’s just 29 percent down on the first weekend and another all-time record. Normally, blockbusters of this magnitude drop much more sharply after the opening weekend.

Never before has a film that debuted over $100 million in the US dropped so little. A record that Tom Cruise and the other people behind the film should particularly like.

After all, a lack of quality before the first weekend can still be disguised by marketing. But by the second weekend at the latest, there are already opinions from critics and cinema-goers who have actually seen the film. From this point on, word of mouth and internet reviews have a significant influence on success.

How much a movie loses after it opens is a good indicator of how well it has been received by audiences — and Top Gun 2 seems to have nailed it in that regard.

The other US cinema charts

Far behind «Top Gun 2″ (90 million) are the films » Doctor Strange 2 » (9.1 million), » Bob’s Burgers — The Movie » (4.6 million), » The Gangster Gang » (3 .3 million) and “ Downton Abbey 2: A New Era ” (3.1 million). So «Maverick» dominates, but that will surely change next weekend. Then the next big blockbuster will start in the cinemas with “ Jurassic World 3 ”.

«Top Gun» is also great in Germany!

With more than 400,000 tickets sold last weekend, «Top Gun 2» in Germany slipped only 25 percent and has already cracked the million mark overall. It goes without saying that the action spectacle with Tom Cruise also ranks number 1 in the current charts.

This is followed by «Doctor Strange 2″ with at least 113,000 tickets still solved. Places 3-5 go to » Fantastic Beasts 3 » (45,000), » Paw Patrol: Jet To The Rescue » (43,000) and » Mia and Me » (40,000).
