Top Gun: Maverick - Tom Cruise plays Capt. Pete "Maverick" Mitchell in Top Gun: Maverick from Paramount Pictures, Skydance and Jerry Bruckheimer Films.

Top Gun: Maverick passed Titanic on the list of the highest-grossing domestic movies of all time. 

Titanic moves to the 8th position as Top Gun: Maverick rises to 7th.  The Tom Cruise movie has now sold over $662 million worth of tickets, but there are less than 50 million dollars separating 9th through 5th place.  Top Gun: Maverick could very well pass Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther to reach the 5th spot.

Out of the top ten movies listed below, I haven’t seen Spider-Man: No Way Home either.  I LOVE superhero and action movies, so this situation is embarrassing to admit. 🙂  Worldwide, the highest-grossing movie is Avatar.  I haven’t seen the new Avatar: Way of the Water, but I definitely want to see it SOON.  Check out the trailer:
