‘Top Gun’ Hits $1 Billion WW, ‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Approaching $750 Million’, ‘Elvis’ Enters With $51 Million – Deadline

Refresh for the latest It was a wild weekend at the global and international box office with major milestones for Paramount/Skydance’s Top Gun: Maverick and Universal/Amblin’s Jurassic World Dominionas well as a $50.5 million return from Warner Bros. newcomer, Elvis

As mentioned before, TGM surpassed $1 billion worldwide in just 31 days, marking only the second time a movie has reached such heights during the pandemic; and by far Tom Cruise’s most profitable move ever.

Meanwhile Universal/Amblin’s third Jura- pic does dino mite business with a $43 million international box office weekend propelling it to $747M global. And, Warner Bros’ Elvis starts with a bang $20M from 50 overseas markets for a $50.5 million worldwide debut.

There’s a lot to unpack here – and isn’t it nice to have such an embarrassment of wealth.

JWD Crossing $700 million makes it only the 7th film to do so during the pandemic. The offshore total through Sunday is estimated at $443.8M† And that with a decrease of only 45%. Will it also reach $1 billion worldwide? Signs point to yes.

Remarkable, JWD already stands at $114.3 million in China, a market that hasn’t been very welcoming to Hollywood lately. It is by far the best studio title in the PRC so far in 2022.

Rounding out the top 5 behind China so far is Mexico ($39.7 million), the UK ($33.4 million), Australia ($18.5 million) and France ($19 million). The hold is big and Japan has yet to come on July 29.

Looking for the new entry this weekend, Elvis had a great time with $20 million from 50 markets

A #1 starting in the UK at $4.7 million to be roughly on par with Rocketman, 12% above Lurhmann’s Great Gatsby and 25% above Warner’s A Star Is Born. France also got off to a good start with $2 million.
