Cruise returned to the role of Capt. Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in the summer hit Top Gun: Maverick, the actor’s first $1 billion film, grossing more than $1.28 billion worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.

The $635 million in domestic totals the film has earned in the United States makes it the ninth highest-grossing film of all time, after 2015’s Jurassic World with $653 million and 1997’s Titanic with $659 million.

Exhibitor Relations Co. Jeff Bock spoke to CNBC about the film’s continued success since it hit theaters on May 25, noting that “there just wasn’t much product” in theaters as the film industry continues to recover from the shutdown pandemic.

Bock said that “movies that were well received, with good word of mouth, really stuck around longer,” such as Top Gun: Maverick’s gradual gross percentage declines were “every week in the teens and 20s and 30s,” Bock said.

“What Top Gun did was hold that audience week in, week out, which we just haven’t seen in the blockbuster era,” Bock said.

Tinseltown mainstay is looking to revisit the box office heights with a few high profile sequels he’s working on, as he reprises his role as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning – Part One and Part Two.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning – Part One is expected to hit theaters in July, while Top Gun: Maverick is in theaters now.
