The release date of ‘Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One’ has been changed again. The action extravaganza will now release two days before from its earlier announced date, that is, Wednesday, July 12, rather than on Friday, July 14, 2023. The announcement was made during Paramount’s CinemaCon 2023 panel.
This change of date will give the film two extra days to generate a significant opening and it also means that it’ll now enjoy a five-day weekend. It’s without doubt a smart move by the studio, as the film is predicted to be one of the summer’s top box office draws.
‘Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One’ stars Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt, alongside Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg. Rebecca Ferguson and Vanessa Kirby also return as ex-MI6 agent Ilsa Faust and black-market arms dealer Alanna White Widow Mitsopolis respectively. The new cast members include Hayley Atwell, Cary Elwes, Rob Delaney, Indira Varma, Mark Gatiss, Charles Parnell, Greg Davis, Marcin Dorociński, Lampros Kalfuntzos, Mariela Garriga and Antonio Bustorff, while two actors from the first part, Henry Czerny, Rolf Saxon have also been cast. Esai Morales and Pom Klementieff will play the new villains of the film.
There are a lot of intriguing speculations regarding what the phrase Dead Reckoning might mean, as it might imply that a villain who was previously believed to be dead is still alive and seeking vengeance.
