The most successful films with Tom Cruise
Before “Top Gun: Maverick” was number one of the most successful films with Tom Cruise, it was true “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” with a staggering $791 million as the front-runner. The fourth offshoot slipped with 694 million US dollars “Mission: Impossible – Phantom Protocol” recently in third place. Unsurprisingly follows in fourth place “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” with $682 million and closing out the top five is the “War of the Worlds”-Adaptation by Steven Spielberg with $603 million.
Of course, it remains to be seen whether Tom Cruise will top the gigantic success of “Top Gun: Maverick” again in the future.
