The flying doesn’t stop!
“Top Gun: Maverick” soars to $300 million today after just 11 days.
Over the weekend, Paramount said they did $85 million. But it turns they took in $90 million altogether. It’s interesting that they keep underestimating the box office only to correct it.
But hey– “Maverick” is earning bucks faster than our last blockbuster, “Spider Man No Way Home.”
Meantime, no slouch himself, “Doctor Strange” is aiming for $400 million domestically today or tomorrow. Worldwide including the US, the good doctor has $900 million in the bank. For that kind of money, we’ve learned to type out Cumberbatch quickly.
In other commercial movie news, we’re off to see “Jurassic Park: Dominion” tonight. The third part of the second group of “Jurassic” movies has already made $57 million internationally. It opens to previews on Thursday night. Check our Twitter feed @showbiz411 around 9:30 tonight for early reactions.
