“Non-woke” Top Gun 2 continues to break records and the most recent one involves the film’s lead actor Tom Cruise, as it has become the highest-grossing movie of his career.
“Top Gun: Maverick” has now earned $806.3 million globally at the box office, surpassing “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” which collected $791 million worldwide in 2018.
As we previously reported, the “Top Gun” sequel has surpassed “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” ($398 million) to claim the No. 1 spot in U.S. domestic sales for the year.
Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro gave his approval for the movie yesterday as he tweeted, “- Top Gun Maverick: 10” along with a thumbs up.
Bolsonaro added a video in a reply and said, “Real life Top Guns of our glorious Brazilian Air Force, under the command of Brigadier @CBaptistaJr , always ready to protect our airspace and our Brazil.”
