The next two installments of the Mission Impossible franchise are once again seeing their cinema releases postponed due to the health crisis. No Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) in 2022…
The release of the next two installments of the adventures of Ethan Hunt is an almost impossible mission. Paramount Pictures and Skydance have decided to once again postpone the theatrical releases of Mission Impossible 7 and Mission Impossible 8, which were respectively scheduled for September 28, 2022 and July 5, 2023 in France.
It is through a press release relayed by variety, among other things, that the production companies have announced the postponement of the two films worn by Tom Cruise and directed by Christopher McQuarrie for July 2023 and June 2024:
“After careful consideration, Paramount Pictures and Skydance have decided to postpone the release dates for Mission: Impossible 7 & 8 in response to delays due to the ongoing pandemic. The new release dates will be July 14, 2023 and June 28, respectively. 2024. We look forward to providing moviegoers with an unprecedented cinematic experience.”
The health crisis is an additional brake on the shooting of these action films, which are already complex to direct with many stunts performed as little as possible in front of green screens and passages in different countries, such as Italy, the United Kingdom. United or even Poland.
After two years of waiting (!), we will still have to be patient before seeing Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames and many others on the big screen in the next Mission Impossible, which promise escapades in the four corners of the world and exceptional stunts on land and in the air.
But it’s not this year that fans will be able to discover the intrepid actor’s “most dangerous” stunt. Will we still see Tom Cruise in the cinema in 2022? There is still hope since it is still expected in Top Gun: Maverick on May 25 in theaters, if the film is not also postponed by then.
