Weekend Box Office Results: Top Gun: Maverick Continues Its Cruise


We knew Top Gun: Maverick wasn’t going anywhere this week, and the only question was exactly how much word of mouth would affect its second weekend. Save for Cronenberg stans online, maverick was all the moviegoers seemed to be talking about, and weekday numbers were strong, showing no signs of slowing down. It took over 115 days in 2005 for Tom Cruise to see his biggest domestic hit, Steven Spielberg War of the Worlds, reached 234 million dollars. It took nine days to Top Gun: Maverick to surpass him, and he entered the conversation for another milestone.

Numbers tell a story. Despite an asterisk here and there over the past year due to pandemic caution, they continue to write a narrative about how audiences turn to movies these days. Last week, Top Gun: Maverick became the biggest opening of Tom Cruise’s career. This week, its second weekend was also better than any opening cruise. With a haul of $86 million, it is now the 8th best second weekend ever (Spider-Man: No Coming Home is 10th with $84.5 million). It’s also only the third live-action movie to open over $100 million and drop less than 40% in the second week. Star Wars: The Force Awakens (-39.8%) and 2002 Spider Man (-37.8%) were the others. The 32% drop Superior gun had this weekend puts it in the league of the other two movies only to achieve that – Frozen 2 (-34.0%) and Shrek 2 (-33.2%) — and that was after the Memorial Day holiday to boot, when movies tend to drop much steeper. At $291 million in 10 days (the 18th best ever), that puts maverick into a whole new stratosphere. Even with last week’s record numbers, $400 million was not a number that was talked about even a few days ago. But now we have to seriously consider that this could become the biggest movie of the summer.

The $400 million milestone was certainly discussed as early as the opening weekend of The Batman and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but they fell just enough to finish with $369 million and $389 million, respectively. At $290 million after 10 days, Top Gun: Maverick is $51 million and $42 million ahead of them, respectively. And with all due respect Captain Marvelthis driver is also $26 million ahead of his pace. maverick is the 30th film in history to gross over $250 million in its first 10 days. Of the remaining 29, only three failed to reach $400 million – batman versus superman, Furious 7and the final Harry Potter – while the new strange doctor is almost there. Maverick’Weekend Two was better than all but 9 movies on this list. Dinosaurs next week is going to take a bite out of its box office, but if it maintains a third weekend between $30 and $35 million, it’s heading for over $425 million, and with strange doctor by settling on a specific number (he was $292 million after 10 days), we might have a new favorite for the summer national champion. Worldwide, it already exceeds $549 million.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness earned an additional $9.2 million in weekend five, bringing its total to over $388 million. No film with more than $358 million in the bank after 31 days has ever failed to reach $400 million. Odd’s total is in front of both Captain America: Civil War ($7.8 million) and iron man 3 ($8.4 million) and is on track to surpass both to end up between $410 and $415 million. Among the 46 movies that made at least $300 million in their first month, the fifth-lowest weekends among them are batman versus superman ($5.5 million), Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon ($6.08 million), Furious 7 ($6.64 million) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($7.25 million). These films still made between $10 million and $24 million more to complete their run. Until next week, Captain America: Civil War earned $4.3 million in its sixth weekend and had taken out $396 million by day 38. With jurassic world starts its run next week and Superior gun now in the conversation, Odd’The chances of becoming the highest-grossing domestic film of the summer have been reduced. Worldwide, it topped $909 million.

While we keep waiting for Pixar Light year in a few weeks we check out the anime movies lying around. Universal The villains added another $3.1 million, bringing its total to $87 million. A total of around $95 million is in the works, much better than last week’s opening of Bob’s Burgers movie information, which is down to $4.5 million and appears to be heading between $30-35 million. But the big winning family up Light year and Minions going out was sonic the hedgehog 2which continues its rise towards 190 million dollars.

There may not be a biggest winner this year, however, for all that it means Everything everywhere all at once. At one point, $30 million was considered an incredible win. This week, it topped $60 million, beating A24’s biggest hit (Uncut Gems) now over $10 million. The lost city, on the other hand, fought the slow battle to get over $100 million last week, but with just $79 million internationally, the $68 million-budget Paramount movie won’t be a hit. theatrical success. (Top Gun: Maverick’s The $160 million+ P&A budget, on the other hand, is already covered.) Downton Abbey: A New Era could use a little international help to get out of the red itself. The $40 million budget film just broke the $35 million mark domestically with a drop to just $3 million. It’s less than King Arthur: Legend of the Sword did in its third weekend. Downtown is nearly $2 million ahead of that movie’s pace, so it’s now between $41 and $43 million. It grossed an additional $41 million internationally.

by David Cronenberg Future Crimes got a semi-wide launch this weekend; it was the fourth largest in Neon history with 773 theaters. When they opened spencer in 996 theaters last November, it opened to $1.25 million for an average of $1,261 per theater. Cronenberg’s new film starring Kristen Stewart in a supporting role opened to $1.1 million for a PTA of $1,423 and landed in the top 10. This is the highest PTA the studio has ever had opening one of its titles in over 200 theaters. The filmmaker’s latest foray into “body horror,” exist, opened to $810,262 in 256 theaters in 1999 for an PTA of $3,165. IFC Films hasn’t opened a major film since 2015 The D-train with Jack Black, which opened in 1,009 theaters at $447,661 for a paltry $444 PTA. This weekend they opened Chloe Okuno’s Observer with Maika Monroe in 764 theaters; it grossed $815,000 for a PTA of $1,067. The three-hour Indian serial killer thriller, VikramNamegrossed $1.3 million from 465 theaters for a PTA of $2,795.

The dinosaurs are loose in the sixth jurassic park film (or third jurassic world film). Colin Trevorrow returns, as do Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, for Jurassic World: Dominion. The previous two films have grossed over $3 billion worldwide, and the new film is expected to be one of the biggest of the summer, with the potential to top the current one. Superior gun mastodon. But will it challenge Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (or even Superior gun) for first place?
