NON-WOKE TOP GUN MAVERICK Sinks Titanic Box Office Record!

by 08.14.2022

Top Gun: Maverick opened in theaters two months ago, but Tom Cruise’s blockbuster still hasn’t left the top of the US box office charts. Last weekend it was still in sixth place, and when Thor: Love & Thunder drops out of the top 5 this weekend, as it heads to streaming, there’s a good chance Maverick will climb back up the charts.

Christopher Vogler’s approach to Campbell’s structure broke the mythical story structure into twelve stages. For this series, we define the stages in simplified interpretations:

The Ordinary World: We see the hero’s normal life at the start of the story before the adventure begins.
Call to Adventure: The hero is faced with an event, conflict, problem, or challenge that makes them begin their adventure.
Refusal of the Call: The hero initially refuses the adventure because of hesitation, fears, insecurity, or any other number of issues.
Meeting the Mentor: The hero encounters a mentor that can give them advice, wisdom, information, or items that ready them for the journey ahead.
Crossing the Threshold: The hero leaves their ordinary world for the first time and crosses the threshold into adventure.
Tests, Allies, and Enemies: The hero learns the rules of the new world and endures tests, meets friends, and comes face-to-face with enemies.
The Approach: The initial plan to take on the central conflict begins, but setbacks occur that cause the hero to try a new approach or adopt new ideas.
The Ordeal: Things go wrong and added conflict is introduced. The hero experiences more difficult hurdles and obstacles, some of which may lead to a life crisis.
The Reward: After surviving The Ordeal, the hero seizes the sword — a reward that they’ve earned that allows them to take on the biggest conflict. It may be a physical item or piece of knowledge or wisdom that will help them persevere.
The Road Back: The hero sees the light at the end of the tunnel, but they are about to face even more tests and challenges.
The Resurrection: The climax. The hero faces a final test, using everything they have learned to take on the conflict once and for all.
The Return: The hero brings their knowledge or the “elixir” back to the ordinary world.
