Going into this past weekend, the sequel crossed the $800 million mark to become Cruise’s highest-grossing movie of all time, overtaking 2018’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout. Just days later, Maverick has now crossed $900 million, making it just one of three movies to do so in the pandemic era.

As shared by THR, Top Gun: Maverick’s worldwide total currently stands at $901.9 million, with $474.8 million coming from domestic showings and $427.1 million coming from its international run. The only other movies to achieve this since the pandemic started hampering the theatrical business in March 2020 are Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Spider-Man: No Way Home, with the former taking in almost $950 million worldwide and the latter’s global haul resting at nearly $1.9 billion. Paramount Pictures, the studio that released Maverick, claims that 16% of the movie’s audience have seen it more than once on the big screen.
