Top Gun: Maverick, from Paramount and Skydance, earned another $30.5 million (-31 percent) in its fifth weekend of domestic release.  

. That returned the film to the top spot for the weekend, a remarkable feat in any era, let alone our frontloaded, opening weekend-centric theatrical environment, and with two strong openers on its tail. 

That fifth-weekend gross is the second-highest of its kind (American Sniper didn’t go wide until its fourth weekend), trailing only Titanic ($30 million in 1998) and Avatar ($42 million in 2010). 

Tom Cruise’s $170 million legacy sequel has now made $1.005 billion globally with a new international total of $487 million (it was once again the top movie overseas dropping just 26%). 

Between Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ($515 million in 2019) and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ($532 million in 2016), the movie is currently ranked 15th on the all-time domestic chart. 

After The Lion King ($543 million), it is currently the second-highest-grossing film. The greatest domestic grosser since Spider-Man: No Way Home ($804 million) and Avengers: Endgame ($858 million) 

Top Gun: Maverick, from Paramount and Skydance, earned another $30.5 million (-31 percent) in its fifth weekend of domestic release.  

It will finish its run with about $585 million domestically, just below Incredibles 2 ($608 million), assuming a “normal” rate of decline. 

It has performed so absurdly well that it somewhat compensates for a lighter-than-expected summer theatrical schedule.
