Apologies to the Avengers, but the Tom Cruise-led Top Gun: Maverick has officially snapped Avengers: Infinity War out of their sixth place spot at the all-time box office chart as its 13th weekend in theaters kicks off. With the film’s latest daily gross on Friday, August 19, Maverick has now grossed $679 million domestically, which is good enough to surpass 2018’s Infinity War ($678 million). This puts Maverick, a sequel that came over three decades after the first, on the outside looking in on a top five consisting of other IP films such as Black Panther ($700 million), Avatar ($760 million), Spider-Man: No Way Home ($804 million), Avengers: Endgame ($859 million) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936 million).
The news of Maverick’s milestone comes shortly after Paramount announced a "Fan Appreciation Weekend" event that saw the film return to certain formats such as IMAX in select theaters. These screenings included bonus footage including a behind-the-scenes look at the film and some theaters gave out exclusive posters. Maverick has been a monumental success for both Paramount and Tom Cruise himself. The film is the distributor’s highest-grossing film of all time domestically, passing the likes of Titanic ($600 million) during its theatrical run.
