Paramount is bringing Top Gun: Maverick back to theaters for a limited time. On Tuesday, the studio announced that Maverick will be flying back into theaters, including select premium large formats and IMAX, beginning December 2nd through December 15th.
Maverick, the sequel to Top Gun, earned $1.48 billion worldwide during its theatrical run. $716 million of that came from the domestic box office, while the remaining $770 million came from the international box office. It remains the highest-grossing movie of the year by a landslide and is one of only two films to cross $1 billion at the box office this year, with Jurassic World Dominion ($1.001 billion) being the second.
“’Top Gun: Maverick’ truly epitomizes the magic of the moviegoing experience, and we wanted to provide fans the opportunity to once again enjoy this cinematic spectacle as it was meant to be seen. This feels like the perfect time to bring ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ back to theaters so audiences everywhere can once again experience how special this film is.”Chris Aronson, Paramount’s president of domestic distribution
The movie was released in May and, per Paramount, it is the only film to ever be No. 1 at the domestic box office for both Memorial Day and Labor Day holidays. Maverick, which is star Tom Cruise‘s first film to open over $100 million in a single weekend, also stands as Paramount’s highest-grossing domestic release ever.
Top Gun: Maverick officially hit digital streaming on August 23rd and Blu-Ray and DVD on November 1st. It is currently slated to debut on Paramount+ on December 22nd, just in time for the holidays.
