The highly anticipated sequel brought in $156 million at the domestic box office as of Monday morning, and $252.7 million worldwide. The film debuted 28% above Cruise's last big hit.
"Top Gun: Maverick" was released on more than 25,000 screens globally, making it Paramount's widest release in its history, per Paramount.

The film debuted 28% above Cruise's last big hit, "Mission: Impossible — Fallout" in 2018.

The movie was originally scheduled to be released in 2020, but was pushed back two years due to the pandemic.

The film has ousted Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End," which brought in $153 million in its 2007 release, as the top-performing Memorial Day opener of all time.
