The sequel now surpasses Titanic after earning $601.9 million USD throughout North America. In June, the film crossed the $1 billion USD mark in global box office, making it Tom Cruise's greatest film milestone to date. So far, the movie has grossed $595.6 million USD internationally and almost $1.2 billion USD globally. The film also ranks 12th in total ticket sales in North America as it becomes Paramount's highest-earning film on the continent. CEO of Paramount Pictures, Brian Robbins said,
"For 110 years, Paramount Pictures has produced and distributed some of the most iconic films in Hollywood history, including the all-time classic Titanic, which marks its 25th anniversary this year.
Top Gun: Maverick is a phenomenal motion picture, and we take deep pride in celebrating this tremendous achievement alongside Tom Cruise, our filmmakers and cast, our marketing and distribution teams, and, of course, all the new and original Top Gun fans, without whom this wouldn’t have been possible."
