Top Gun: Maverick has flown into the danger zone for the second time, as the film only dropped 33% in its second weekend, which is the lowest box office drop of the year so far! The film has made a whopping $548 million internationally, and could very well reach the $1 billion club if it doesn’t drop too big with the arrival of Jurassic World: Dominion next week. Additionally, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has become Sam Raimi’s highest-grossing film of his entire career, with the movie finally joining the $900 million club this week.
Oh, and side note: it wasn’t Morbin’ time, with the re-release of everyone’s favorite film, Morbius, barely making an impression in cinemas. Heck, it’s not even in the top 32 films of the week, and the re-release of S.S. Rajamouli’s [incredible] RRR made more money than Morbius did in its Morbin’ re-release. I don’t know what’s funnier: Sony thinking that internet memes on your terrible movie would automatically translate to bank in theatres, or the fact that no one showed up in cinemas to keep the meme of Morbius alive.
Here’s the full list of the top ten films of the week:
- Top Gun: Maverick (Paramount): $85.9M (-32.1%) – 4,751 theatres
- Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (Disney): $9.2M (-42.4%) – 3,765 theatres
