Tom Cruise is king at the domestic box office once again.is showing no signs of slowing down.that the filmmakers behind the movie used advanced AI developed by a company called Sonantic to perfectly recreate Kilmer’s voice.For years now, I’ve had a very strict policy when it comes to seeing movies in theaters: IMAX, or I don’t go.

Paramount’s “ Top Gun: Maverick ,” which was co-financed and coproduced by Skydance, is soaring to the top of the charts for its second weekend of release, drawing in a commanding $25 million on Friday from 4,751 locations.After enjoying the widest domestic opening last weekend with 4,732 North American cinemas, “Maverick” actually added 19 more for its sophomore outing.If estimates hold, the sequel will earn a total of $85 million or more in its sophomore outing to boast the smallest decline ever — 33 percent — for a movie opening to $100 million more and finish Sunday with $290 million in domestic ticket sales.The studio is projecting an $84.” Last year, Kilmer himself revealed that he’d worked with Sonantic to train a digital version of his voice capturing his speaking style as closely as possible.5 million haul through Sunday, a stunning 33% dive from its $124 million three-day opening.On Saturday, became Cruise’s top-grossing film domestically when passing up 2005’s The War of the Worlds ($243.A soft decline like that would be a superlative achievement, marking the smallest drop in domestic box office history for a film that opened above $100 million.It’s such an enjoyable way to watch movies, I’ve come to the conclusion that the only movies I will see in a theater are big, Hollywood extravaganzas.

To compare, recent high grossers like “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” and “The Batman” fell 67% and 50%, respectively, in their sophomore outings.That’s after zooming past the first Top Gun ($180.Still the same creative soul.Even for a star like Cruise, a drop as low as 33% is largely unheard of in recent years.The actor’s last blockbuster, 2018’s “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” fell 42.5% in its second weekend after opening to $61.The chance to tell my story, in a voice that feels authentic and familiar, is an incredibly special gift.2 million.My Top Gun: Maverick experience was a reminder of why that matters, and why I urge you to go see this movie in an IMAX theater, if you can.

All this is to say that “Maverick” is doing very well.Word-of-mouth has been spectacular for the sequel, with the film earning a rare “A+” grade on Cinema Score, indicating maximum approval from general ticketbuyers.Through it all, he has always delivered… That is what a movie star does; that’s job number one… Your audience has to trust your choices and trust that you will never let them down.Paramount expects “Maverick” to expand its domestic gross to $290 million through Sunday.It is already Cruise’s biggest film ever at the domestic box office, passing his previous best, the $243.3 million haul of 2005’s “War of the Worlds,” on Saturday.If you want to be a legend with a long career, you cannot disappoint your audience.IMAX theaters do a better job of filling your field of view than any other kind of cinema for one reason: The screens are bigger, and the way the seating areas are stacked relative to the screens, pretty much everyone in the audience can enjoy that sensation.

Reunited with his “Oblivion” director Joseph Kosinski, Cruise returns to “Top Gun” as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, who must train a new fleet of aviators for a tricky mission.Alongside Cruise, the sequel stars Miles Teller, Glen Powell, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Connelly and Val Kilmer.“Top Gun: Maverick” will soon have competition in the form of fellow blockbuster “.Woke movies lecture and talk down to their audiences.
