Officially release dates of Mission: Impossible 7 & 8 have been delayed. Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible franchise returned back in 2010 with a stable stream of sequels. In Mission: Impossible Franchise the most successful and highest-earning sequel was Mission: Impossible – Fallout in 2018. McQuarrie’s film was not just the best action movie in summer but also the best in all sequels.
After the success of Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Paramount said McQuarrie will write and direct Mission: Impossible 7 & 8 and will shoot them back-to-back, Paramount set release dates 2021 & 2022 for both sequels 7 & 8. They planned Mission: Impossible 7 production will start at the beginning of 2020. But it didn’t go as they planned, production was shut down due to coronavirus pandemic right when it was near to start. Almost all studios stopped their productions and also pushed back release dates, Now Paramount has had to reschedule the release dates of upcoming Mission: Impossible 7 & 8.
Today Paramount officially made an announcement that Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8 release have been delayed. They Pushed back only by hardly a few months. Mission: Impossible 7 was originally scheduled to hit theaters on July 21, 2021, but now it will release on November 19th, 2021. The other sequel Mission: Impossible 8 planned to release on August 5, 2022, but now it will hit on big screens on November 4, 2022.
It’s not a surprise for us that release dates of both sequels are pushed back. Cruise is hoping that the production of the sequels will begin in June, but they will have a very tight schedule to complete the sequels on time. Paramount has given some more time to McQuarrie to complete the movie and see how and when production will complete. Both Sequels’ major portion of Principal photography was planned to do in Italy now which is not possible due to coronavirus pandemic.
The delay of both sequels put the franchise in a different position than its final blockbusters, now sequels will be part of fall season where many other major movies are standing like: Fantastic Beasts 3 and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will release two weeks before Mission: Impossible 7, also Mission: Impossible 8 will competition with Shazam 2 and untitled Disney live-action movie. Fans were hoping to see the sequels on pervious dates but at least the waiting isn’t much longer.
