Top Gun: Maverick” pulled in blockbuster ticket sales in its opening weekend, collecting $134 million from a record 4,732 North American cinemas. Paramount and Skydance’s all-American action adventure is expected to collect $151 million through Monday, defying expectations while also looking to set a new high-water mark for Memorial Day opening weekends.

Good luck. So far, from folks who have seen it, they all gave it top reviews.

Will check it out once the crowds go down in a few weeks. :)

Definitely want to see this. Watched the original last night with my 26 year old nephew who'd never seen it. And aside from the parts of it that were used constantly as home theater demos for a certain time, it's been at least that long since I saw it. Some parts didn't age that well IMO... the constant repetition of 2 songs in the soundtrack among a few things.

I don't mind watching big action movies in the theater. Like the sound and action on the big screen.

Only drawback of course are the high ticket prices and prices for food and drinks. Also, sometimes you get crazy people who talk or make lot of noises as well as using their phones while watching the movie. Distracting to see a movie and a light from the phone comes up.

I’m never pleased with the presentation. The sound isn’t right. Or the projector isn’t lined up properly with the screen. Nvm the d bags in the theater they have no respect for anyone else lol

I agree with the above as well but I do like to treat myself and the family for an outing once in awhile. :)

Later, anyways, I will get it and watch it on the home theater. :)

I am going Tuesday afternoon to see this at A Dolby theatre. I mentioned this before but they open the new one literally five minutes from my house and they give a discount if you sign up on a membership group, they have. They also give you a discount on popcorn. Sadly the popcorn may have been made during the release of the first Top Gun movie. And they don’t give you butter they give you something that masqueraders butter. And it isn’t cheap, I think you have to get a credit check before you buy them popcorn and candy.

It doesn't taste the same when they stopped using coconut oil to pop it. And yes....bring your own Brinks truck to pay for it.
