Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One‘, the 7th installment from the franchise, has surpassed all expectations. The movie on a budget of $295 million-plus has made over $235 million in 5 days globally. 

In the United States alone, the movie topped the box-office charts and made $90 million. The film was released a few weeks before Oppenheimer and Barbie to give it more headway and it looks like the decision by Paramount Pictures has paid off. 

The series is based on the television series created by Bruce Geller and follows Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise), an agent of the IMF (Impossible Mission Force). The first movie was released in 1996 and since then 7 movies have been released so far.

A massive contributor to the film’s success is Tom Cruise. His portrayal of Ethan Hunt for more than 2 decades is why the franchise became so popular. His recent, Top Gun: Maverick made $1.9 globally, and Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One in less than a week has made over $200 million. 

Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise stars directed the movie alongside his IMF (Impossible Mission Force) team consisting of Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), and Luther (Ving Rhames). Esai Morales is Gabriel, the main antagonist of the movie. Hayley Atwell, Vanessa Kirby, and Pom Klementieff also star in the movie. 

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One made slightly less than its previous iteration in the opening week. Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018) made $61 million, compared to Dead Reckoning Part One’s $56 million. Fallout also is the highest-grossing film from the franchise, which made over $786 million, globally.

Dead Reckoning Part Two

As per THR, the movie has a slightly older fanbase, with 22 percent of ticket buyers in the 55 or older bracket. It seems like the fans who watched the first movie in 1996, are still keeping up with the new releases.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two is said to be the final movie with Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt. Tom is yet to decide his future with the franchise. Christopher McQuarrie will be back in his Director’s chair for Dead Reckoning Part Two. 

Fans are hoping that Part Two will be the best Mission: Impossible movie to date. Yes, the stunts were not as grand as those in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011) but Tom Cruise still does not have a stunt double.

It will be interesting to see how the finale ends. Most of the cast from Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One will be reprising their roles in Part Two, except for a few that won’t make it. Rip Ilsa Faust.
