It’s “Elvis” vs. “Top Gun: Maverick.”
The two blockbusters were virtually tied for the No. 1 spot last weekend in the North American box office. Both grossed approximately $30.5 million.
Officially, “Top Gun” is listed as No. 1 because it was $176,000 ahead of “Elvis,” which opened last weekend. But that’s a small difference.

Opening in fourth place was “The Black Phone.” The horror thriller grabbed $23.4 million.
Placing fifth in its second weekend was “Lightyear,” with Chris Evans as the voice of the popular “Toy Story” character. The animated adventure grossed $17.7 million.
“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” dropped to sixth place with $1.73 million.
Opening in seventh place was “Jugjugg Jeeyo,” a Hindi-language family with $725,000.
