'Top Gun: Maverick' Surpasses 'Avengers: Infinity War' as Sixth-Highest Grossing Film Domestically

Top Gun: Maverick has officially overtaken Avengers: Infinity War as the sixth-highest grossing movie in the history of the domestic box office.

According to reports, the Tom Cruise-led sequel has earned a total of $679 million USD in North America so far, surpassing the Marvel Studios film’s $678 million USD record. Maverick’s next target on the list is Black Panther‘s $700 million USD to become No. 5; Variety adds that the feat is not impossible for the sequel film as it has no major competition until the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in November, however Disney may possibly re-release the 2018 movie in anticipation for part two.

Maverick has grossed over $700 million USD in total as of writing, excluding the sales from big overseas markets China and Russia. It opened in May and broke the Memorial Day Weekend opening record, as well as became Cruise’s first film to ever pass $1 billion USD internationally.

Elsewhere in entertainment, streaming surpassed cable in July and became the most-watched platform for the first time ever.
