Top Gun: Maverick is not stopping at breaking the records, now entering its second weekend at the box office after the most massive Memorial Day Weekend opening ever and Tom Cruise’s biggest ever, Top Gun: Maverick is estimated to gross $86 million in its second weekend, including around $25 million on Friday.
This will be the lowest dropoff ever for a movie that had opened with $100 million. The weekend will bring Top Gun: Maverick‘s cume at the box office to $291.6 million by Sunday’s end, surpassing The War of the Worlds ($234 million), making it Tom Cruise’s biggest film ever at the box office domestically.
So far, Top Gun: Maverick has got positive reactions from critics and fans. ComicBook.com’s Spencer Perry gave an impressive 4.5-out-of-5 review to the film. He writes:
“Top Gun: Maverick is a movie that is satisfying on the narrative level, in a visual sense, and when accounting for what the movie is actually about. The film is the rare sequel that outdoes the original in every way, delivering the ultimate theatrical experience that will have audiences convinced they’ve just hit crossed Mach 5 themselves.”
Top Gun: Maverick is now on top of the box office, and the top five movies this week will be similar to the chart last weekend. Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness remains at the second-place spot, grossing $9.25 million as the countdown to its Disney+ streaming debut begins.
