Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick hit theatres around the world last week after fans anticipated its release for a long time. The movie, which is the sequel to 1986’s Top Gun, has now become the No. 1 movie in the world. 

The movie’s official Instagram handle announced the news regarding its position. “Remember, no points for second place. Thank you for making #TopGun: Maverick the No. 1 Movie in the World!,” reads the post, which was accompanied by a short video with clips from the movie. 

Top Gun: Maverick also became Tom Cruise’s first $100 million opening, and has already crossed $124 million in the box office domestically. The movie will be looking to get to $151 million by Monday, according to EW. 

The movie was also highly-anticipated in India with fans of the original waiting to see the high-flying protagonist back in action. According to reports, the movie crossed Rs. 15 crore in its first weekend, which is an impressive result for a Hollywood release. 

Top Gun: Maverick is set over 30 years after the events of the first movie, and features Cruise’s Pete "Maverick" Mitchell now working for the Navy as a test pilot. He is soon asked back at Top Gun to train a select few pilots for a dangerous mission.

“The final act has a few moments where you hold your breath for answers and watch everything unfold, including a dogfight that points to the quality of the movie. The audience follows the pilots in every frame, but not knowing what comes next,” reads the movie’s review on OTTplay. 

Also starring Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, Monica Barbaro, and a special cameo from Val Kilmer, the movie is now available in theatres near you.
