As of the close of the 4-day holiday weekend, Top Gun: Maverick has grossed $701.2M at the domestic box office and weekend estimates placed the international cume at $740.4M, for a worldwide gross to-date of over $1.44 billion.

More than 3,000 theaters celebrated National Cinema Day, allowing moviegoers access to heavily discounted $3 tickets, including premium large format auditoriums. The celebration generated an estimated 8.1M moviegoers in a single day. While maintaining a robust theatrical run, Top Gun: Maverick also made its home entertainment debut August 23rd and has already broken records there to become the number 1 best-selling digital sell-through title ever in the U.S. its first week of release.
