Top Gun: Maverick is officially the biggest movie of 2022 at the domestic box office. Over three decades after Tom Cruise first played Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell in 
Top Gun, the long-awaited sequel that was often delayed due to COVID-19 finally arrived a few weeks ago. 
Top Gun: Maverick was released in theaters over Memorial Day weekend to not much competition and on the heels of career-best reviews for Tom Cruise. The result was the longtime box office draw also having the highest opening weekend of his career.,After overperforming during the four-day weekend, 
Top Gun: Maverick debuted at over $160 million domestically. This was enough to take Marvel Studios’ 
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness out of its three-week reign at the top spot at the box office. Unlike just about every other blockbuster to ever come from Hollywood, though, 
Top Gun 2‘s box office has not seen a quick decline in interest. Ticket sales are through the roof for the summer event film, which has now put Tom Cruise back on top.,Related: How Maverick’s Box Office Compares to Top Gun 1 (Adjusted for Inflation),As reported by 
THR, Paramount now has the biggest movie of 2022, thanks to 
Top Gun: Maverick. The film passed the $400 million mark domestically on Monday and officially topped 
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Tom Cruise’s highly anticipated sequel now sits at $401.8M domestically. Marvel’s 
Doctor Strange sequel now becomes the second-biggest movie of 2022 domestically, but the multiverse film still is the highest-grossing movie worldwide this year with $931M. 
Top Gun: Maverick‘s worldwide total sits at $748M.,The latest box office record for 
Top Gun: Maverick is another massive win for Paramount and Tom Cruise. It will now be fascinating to see how well this legacy sequel continues to perform in the wake of 
Jurassic World Dominion‘s release. Tom Cruise’s sequel had less than a 50 percent drop in its third weekend when the new 
Jurassic World movie debuted. Word of mouth on 
Top Gun: Maverick will likely remain much stronger than the divisive 
Jurassic World Dominion. It seems unlikely that Universal’s dinosaur franchise will eclipse 
Top Gun‘s return, in the long run, meaning Paramount could hold its title for having the biggest movie of the year for a while.,As the 
Top Gun: Maverick box office total continues to rise, it will be quite intriguing to see where it ends. There is a chance it will be Tom Cruise’s first billion-dollar movie when everything is said and done. 
Top Gun: Maverick is already his biggest movie domestically and will easily pass 
Mission: Impossible – Fallout to be his highest-grossing movie worldwide. Whether or not it can stay above 
Thor: Love and Thunder
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
Avatar: The Way of Water, and other 2022 blockbusters remains to be seen. However, there is no question that 
Top Gun: Maverick‘s box office is impressive.,More: How Much Money Will Tom Cruise Make For Top Gun: Maverick?,Source: THR
