"Top Gun: Maverick" is still breaking records, leapfrogging "Avengers: Infinity War" this week to become the sixth-highest grossing film of all time at the domestic box office.

The sequel to the 1986 hit — already Tom Cruise's highest-grossing film and first-ever billion dollar movie — has earned $685.1 million in the US since its May 27 release. Its global box office haul stands at $1.4 billion, good enough to make it the No. 12 highest grossing movie ever made and putting it two spots ahead of 2019's "Black Panther".

"['Maverick'] is doing something that only a handful of films have ever done in the modern blockbuster era," Jeff Bock, a media analyst at Exhibitor Relations Co. previously told CNBC Make It.
