“Top Gun: Maverick” returns to second spot as box office continues to cool down

In the face of a sky-scrapping inflation with a hypersonic dive in ticket prices, an egregious slowdown global box offices had accelerated further this week as ticket sales grossed only a $66.4 million, however, the Tom Cruise-starring billion-dollar epic “Top Gun: Maverick” returned to second spot with Brad Pitt’s Bullet Train staying at the top coming into the second weekend after release.

However, apart from a meteoric rise in ticket prices, a conventional melt-down in August domestic box office kept audiences as émigré. Nonetheless, “Bullet Train,” the star-sprawling Brad Pitt’s $90-million hammerhead, has kept its top spot.

According to ComScore, so far, the August grossing in North American box offices has been the lowest in months. Although, there had been three new releases this weekend, but none of them had made it into the top five, however, “Bodies, Bodies, Bodies” and “Fall” had managed to infiltrate into top ten.

“Bullet Train” holds drop 56%; Maverick returns to 2nd spot

Apart from the new releases, “Bullet Train” had been met with a more dire situation as the film had shelved only a $13.1 million, however, the total was sufficient to maintain a top spot for second successive week in North American box office.

Bullet Train’s holds dropped by as much as 56 per cent. Nonetheless, coming into the twelfth week after release, “Top Gun: Maverick” has leapt into the second spot with a grossing of $7.1 million. “Top Gun: Maverick” racked up an upsum of $673.8 million in domestic box office, just a $5 million away from being the sixth-highest grossing movie ever in North American box office.

Marvel’s “Avenger: Infinity War” is holding the sixth spot with a total of $678 million.
