'Top Gun: Maverick' became the highest-grossing film with Tom Cruise

The highest-grossing film starring Tom Cruise

Joseph Kosinski's Top Gun: Maverick has grossed $902 million at the box office in less than a month to become the highest-grossing film starring Tom Cruise.

So far, the highest-grossing film starring Cruise has been Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018), which grossed $791 million at the box office. Of the $901.9 million earned by the new film since May 18, $475 million has come from theatres in the United States and $427 million from audiences outside the United States.

The blockbuster is most popular in the United Kingdom ($72 million), Japan (44 million), Australia (41 million), France (35 million) and Germany (21 million). It's worth noting that portal Deadline believes that by early next week, "Top Gun: Maverick" has a good chance of reaching the $1 billion mark.

What's more, "Top Gun: Maverick" was first shown at the 75th Cannes Film Festival from May 17-28, 2022. The blockbuster was a sequel to Top Gun (1986) directed by Anthony Scott. The popular 1980s film made Tom Cruise a movie star, although he initially turned down the role. Only a fee of $1 million could convince him in 1986.

In the sequel, whose budget was 140 million, Cruise returned to the role of Pete Mitchell, nicknamed Maverick, but as a flight instructor, not a pilot. The actor's partner is Jennifer Connelly, who won an Oscar for her role in 'Mind Games' (2001).
