Still flyin high!

“Top Gun — Maverick” continues to soar at North America’s box offices. The sequel to the 1986 hit film starring Tom Cruise remains the top movie in the U.S. and Canada — earning 86-million-dollars in its second week of release. “Maverick” has grossed a total of 291-million-dollars domestically to become Cruise’s all-time top moneymaker. Coming in second is “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” with just over nine-million-bucks followed by “The Bob’s Burgers Movie” with four-and-a-half-million-dollars. Rounding out this week’s top five are “The Bad Guys” followed by “Downton Abbey — A New Era.”
