Old people are an audience that was out of the theater game big time from the pandemic and only started to return. Since they are older seeing stars they are familiar with is a major draw to them, as is the tired genre and plot. Seeing as so many movies look back on their generation and all of their mistakes it's no wonder the fantasy of Top Gun topped the domestic box office.

Basically every actor on earth, like any person in general, would want to work in the industry leader. California alone has an economy superior to the UK, much less the commonwealth compared to the USA. Do you think Spaniards like Penelope Cruz, Antonio Banderas, and Javier Bardem want to act in a foreign language? No, but they want to be in the cinema people actually see.
