Top Gun: Maverick‘s box office domination continued this weekend, as it soared past the $1 billion mark.

The Tom Cruise movie reached $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales on Sunday – just 31 days since its release last month.

For this week, Maverick is in a dogfight with the new Elvis biopic for the No. 1 spot in the U.S.

Why is Top Gun such a big hit?  Will it convince other studios to release their movies to theaters instead of streaming platforms?
