Mission Impossible 8 Delayed to 2025: What Does This Mean for Fans?

The eighth chapter in the thrilling “Mission: Impossible” series is facing a significant setback, a delay of a whole year. This change is part of the ongoing ripple effect caused by the actors’ strike, which has now stretched over three months, causing Hollywood studios to reshuffle their release schedules.

Paramount Pictures recently made the call to move the release date for the upcoming “Mission: Impossible” movie from June 28, 2024, to May 23, 2025. While initially titled “Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part Two,” it’s now simply labeled as “Mission: Impossible.”

The pause button was hit on the production of this sequel, which follows Christopher McQuarrie’s “Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part One,” back in July. The reason? Tom Cruise and his team were busy with an international promotional tour for “Dead Reckoning.”

“Dead Reckoning” managed to rake in $567.5 million worldwide, though it fell short of the 2018 installment, “Fallout” ($791.7 million globally), and Cruise’s summer 2022 blockbuster “Top Gun: Maverick” ($1.5 billion). Despite receiving high praise and some of the best reviews in the franchise’s 27-year history, “Dead Reckoning” faced tough competition at the box office, particularly from “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer.”

The ongoing labor disputes in Hollywood have thrown a wrench into release plans, not only for films this fall that are holding out for star-studded promotions, like “Dune: Part Two” (postponed until March), but also for some highly anticipated big-screen releases next year.

Several Marvel movies have been pushed back, as has the third installment of “Venom.” “Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse,” initially set for March 2024, is now indefinitely delayed.

In addition to the “Mission: Impossible” rescheduling, Paramount has also announced that “A Quiet Place: Day One,” a prequel to the post-apocalyptic horror series starring Lupita Nyong’o, will now premiere on June 28, 2024, where “Dead Reckoning” was originally planned.

Negotiations between the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists and movie studios are set to resume on Tuesday, offering a glimmer of hope for the ongoing labor dispute in Hollywood.
