Maverick Hits Milestone After One Year In Japanese Cinemas – Deadline

Talk about legs — or, more accurately, arms: Paramount/Skydance’s Top Gun: Maverick is still playing in Japanese theaters a full year after its debut. Following on from a stratospheric and super long run, the sequel, on its 365th day of release, became the biggest Tom Cruise movie ever. In doing so, it skipped 2003 The Last Samurai with 13.71 billion JPY ($101.5 million) – and Maverick is still flying on local screens. It previously became Paramount’s #1 film of all time in Japan last August and also marks the same milestone for Skydance.

Japan first opened the Joseph Kosinski-directed actor on May 27, 2022, and then had legs for miles with unheard of retention. This is the second biggest international market for the film, just a hair below the UK.

During the Reiwa era (the current era of Japan’s official calendar which began on May 1, 2019), the sequel is the biggest live-action film for that period. It is also in the Top 10 of all time for Hollywood releases. (Paramount Pictures’ Japan office is operated by Towa Pictures.)

After being nominated for six Oscars (eventually turning in a win for Best Sound), TGM returned to wide release in Japan – 41 weeks after its initial arc – and continues to play; has also been available digitally.

The current global cume is $1,495.6 million with $776.9 million international. The top 5 markets this weekend are: UK ($103.5M), Japan ($101.5M), Korea ($67.5M), Australia ($65.4M) and France ($59.8M dollars).

Next, the Cruise actor Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One debuts in July.
