Top Gun: Maverick should be credited for earning the most bucks for the box office by grossing over $691 million domestically and $1.4 billion worldwide prior to its VOD release.
Other films that contributed to the highest-grossing movies over the summer were part of franchises such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness with its $411 million domestically, Jurassic World Dominion with $364 domestically, and Minion: The Rise of Gru with $354 domestically, respectively.
