With more than 3,235,000 admissions recorded since its release on May 25, “Top Gun: Maverick” is now the most viewed film of 2022 in French cinemas, ahead of “The Batman” and “Doctor Strange 2”.
To him the intoxication… of the summits. Those of the French box office, including Top Gun: Maverick officially took the lead this weekend. With its total now amounting to more than 3,235,000 spectators, Joseph Kosinski’s film is the most seen of the year 2022 in French cinemas. Ahead of The Batman, Doctor Strange 2 and Fantastic Beasts 3, which he doubled in the space of a few days.
By the time you read these lines, the score for the first Top Gun (3,571,206 admissions in 1986) may already have fallen. And, depending on its resistance to the dinosaurs of Jurassic World – The World After, which have just landed in our theaters, Maverick could even approach Tom Cruise’s French records: the 4,077,475 in Mission Impossible, its highest total top as a headliner, and Rain Man’s 6,475,615, where he’s secondary to Dustin Hoffman.
Star record, all sections combined, Barry Levinson’s film will have a hard time being joined. But that shouldn’t overshadow the rather unexpected performance of Top Gun: Maverick. Which is also a hit in the world where, with 747,044,000 dollars in revenue, it is today the third biggest success of the year.
And soon the first on American soil alone, where four small million greenbacks separate him from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, current leader who peaks at 397 million, against 393 against Maverick to date. Whatever happens, the take-off of this new Top Gun is more than successful. It remains to be seen when the landing will take place.
