Top Gun: Maverick, Tom Cruise’s Best Opening Weekend

This Memorial Day weekend, Top Gun: Maverick drew lots of people to movie theaters. In just a few days, the film has grossed over $150 million.

This is the best opening weekend Tom Cruise has ever had in his already legendary movie career. The reaction to the Top Gun sequel, so far, has been mostly positive.

On her Facebook page, Filmmaker, actress and past CYInterview guest Liz Vassey [see here and here] said this about the movie after seeing it:

“Just saw @TopGunMovie and would turn around and see it again right now.”

If you have not seen Top Gun: Maverick yet and want to go back and watch the first Top Gun film, from 1986, you can currently watch it on streaming platform Paramount+.
