Mission: Impossible 5 Gets Massive Release Date Bump

Paramount is playing it safe by steering clear of a Sci-fi / Action-adventure behemoth.

Mission: Impossible 5 was originally slated to hit theaters on Christmas Day 2015.

Unfortunately, that’s a week after Star Wars: The Force Awakens blasts onto the big screens. Paramount Pictures apparently doesn’t want to compete with Star Wars (I wonder why?), so they made a slight change to the release date of MI:5

Alright, so maybe it’s a little more than a slight change. It’s been bumped up all the way to July, a whole five months earlier. It’ll instead be battling with the likes of Point Break, Selflessand Southpaw. Paramount likely considers that to be a much easier competing roster.

Mission: Impossible has been a very consistent franchise, being a high earner for Paramount Pictures and for Tom Cruise. Entry number five will surely continue that trend, especially without a very crowded calender come this July.

Thanks to Cinema Blend for this story.
