Will ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Be Tom Cruise’s First 100 Million Opening Weekend?
When “Top Gun: Maverick” takes flight in North American theaters on Friday, ticket sales for the oft-delayed tentpole may break through the stratosphere.

Thanks to stellar reviews and a healthy dose of nostalgia, Paramount and Skydance’s star-spangled action film — starring Tom Cruise as a fighter pilot who feels the need for speed — is expected to generate a blockbuster 85 million to 100 million over the weekend. Through Memorial Day on Monday, domestic box office receipts could fly as high as 130 million. “Maverick” is playing in 4,732 North American cinemas, the widest theater count in history.

The follow-up to 1986’s “Top Gun” was scheduled to open in the summer of 2020 until Covid-19 scrambled those plans.

If you’re “Elvis” leading star Austin Butler, your body shuts down almost immediately and you’re sent to the hospital. The actor told GQ magazine that he was diagnosed with a virus that hospitalized him the day after he wrapped production on Baz Luhrmann’s music biopic. The virus simulated appendicitis and left Butler bedridden for one week.

“The next day [after filming wrapped] I woke up at four in the morning with excruciating pain, and I was rushed to hospital,” Butler said. “My body just started shutting down the day after I finished ‘Elvis.’”

Butler was officially cast as Elvis in July 2019 after he auditioned for Luhrmann with a haunting rendition of “Unchained Melody.” Once the actor started immersing himself in the life and music of Elvis Presley, he didn’t stop. Filming on
