“Top Gun: Maverick” storms past “Avengers: Infinity War” at domestic box office

Tom Cruise-starred “Top Gun: Maverick,” a sequel to a 1986 action-adventure “Top Gun,” has just swapped positions with “Avengers: Infinity War” in the domestic box office, as the billion-dollar epic became the sixth-highest grossing film of all time in Northern American box office.

In the matter of the fact, Tom Cruise’s “Top Gun: Maverick” closed last weekend just a notch shy of “Avengers: Infinity War” in terms of grossing domestically, while the film had shelved a whopping $1.3 billion so far combinedly from both domestic and international box offices.

Coming into the thirteenth week after release, the film that has been the first-ever Tom Cruise-starred movie which had had a debut above $100 million, grossed $679 million domestically, topping Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 2018 blockbuster “Avenger: Infinity War”.

“Avenger: Infinity War” had a domestic grossing of $678 million. Nevertheless, as “Top Gun: Maverick” has snapped “Avengers: Infinity War” out of sixth place in terms of highest-grossing film ever in the history of domestic box office, the film should be able to surpass “Black Panther” by early-September considering a latest melt-down in domestic offices alongside an utterly poor performance from new releases.

Top Gun: Maverick officially tops “Avenger: Infinity Wars”

The media topline on “Top Gun: Maverick” milestone came against the backdrop of a Paramount statement that said the production house would release a digital version of the film as early as this month, while Blu-ray, 4k Blu-ray alongside DVD editions would be released later this year.

Since a scintillating debut during this year’s Memorial Day Weekend, the “Top Gun: Maverick” had never been out of top six spots in domestic box office.
