Top Gun: Maverick has crossed another impressive milestone during its theatrical run as it has now officially passed Avengers: Infinity War to become the sixth-highest grossing movie in domestic box office history by earning $679 million.
As reported by Box Office Mojo, Top Gun: Maverick now sits behind Black Panther’s $700 million and, while it may be a bit of a challenge, the sequel to 1986’s Top Gun does still have a chance to pass it by as it is still racking up ticket sales at the box office.
While that goal may be obtainable, it simply may not have enough speed to pass Avatar’s $760 million, Spider-Man: No Way Home’s $804 million, Avengers: Endgame’s $858 million, or Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ $936 million. Even if it ends its run in 6th place, it will obviously still be a performance of a lifetime.
Worldwide, Top Gun: Maverickis currently sitting at 13th place with $1.3 billion, and it sits just behind Avengers: Age of Ultron’s $1.4 billion and Frozen 2’s $1.45 billion.
Top Gun: Maverick will continue to soar in theaters around the world, but fans will be able to own a digital copy of the film on August 23. On November 1, the physical 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray releases will arrive. Those who purchase the film at home will be treated to over two hours of bonus content including the cast’s intense flight training programs, Tom Cruise piloting his own vintage World War II P-51 Mustang, and more.
In our Top Gun: Maverick review, we said that it “is an out-of-bounds blast of afterburner fumes and thrillseeker highs that’s sure to please audiences looking for a classic summer blockbuster.”
