tom Cruise‘s career is certainly not in danger.
His latest film, Top Gun: Maverick, was already the biggest hit of his entire career. But the movie keeps making big money, week after week week. And this weekend despite competition from Jurassic World: Dominion and the brand new one Elvis biopic from Baz Luhrmann, it crossed the $ 1 billion mark in worldwide ticket sales.
By doing this, that also passed Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness to become the highest-grossing film of 2022 worldwide. About Variety,, Maverick is just the second movie of the pandemic to make so much money. (Spider-Man: No Way Home was the first.) This, of course, means that it is also the first cruise project to also cross $ 1 billion worldwide.
Here are the five biggest movies of the year right now:
- Top Gun Maverick
- Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness
- Jurassic World: Dominion
- Water Gate Bridge
Top Gun: Maverick‘s success could not have come at a better time for Cruise. He is in the middle of participating in and producing the last two Impossible mission movie, Dead Reckoning, and the films have had a stony production. Most of it was due to the difficulty of making a massive, worldwide film in the middle of Covid, but the hassle resulted in a series of delays and soaring budgets.
If Paramount was nervous about the reported $ 290 million, they sank into only the first of these Mission successors, they must be at least one small less scared now that the movies are playing the guy who is again the biggest star on the planet and doing a lot of the same things that have made Top Gun: Maverick a surprise smash: Huge practical effects on the largest possible scale.
