Paramount Bumps up 'Mission: Impossible 5' to Summer 2015 Date

January 26, 2015

Mission: Impossible 5

After originally being set for release on Christmas Day this year, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have just announced that Mission: Impossible 5 will arrive in theaters five months earlier. The studio has set a new release date of July 31st, 2015 (while also pushing back their Monster Trucks movie from this summer to the December 25th slot instead). The film directed by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) is still in production, so this is surprising. I can't remember a movie getting bumped up so far, but maybe they were worried about Star Wars: The Force Awakens the week before.

But at the same time, moving the movie up five months feels like a weird decision. Though Paramount probably didn't want to dump it in the fall, and the end of summer proved to be very lucrative for Guardians of the Galaxy (it came out on August 1st last year), mostly because there's not much competition at the box office once August and September roll around. We still have no idea what Mission: Impossible 5 is about, but we do know that Tom Cruise pulled off a pretty impressive high-flying stunt for the movie. With the movie arriving much sooner, hopefully we'll get a first look sometime soon. Excited?

Not shocking, Star Wars + Disney is a powerhouse combination of two of the strongest entertainment brands on the planet. It is wise not to go up against them. Inferno, Kung Fu Panda 3, and now Mission Impossible 5 have all moved away from Star Wars in December.

Great comment and very true. Nothing wants to face Star Wars! I'm presuming that The Man from Uncle moves to avoid mission impossible 5 now.

Can't wait for this. Never been let down by MI.

I have a bad feeling about this episode. Wasn't impressed by Jack reacher and it's impossible to beat MI 4. But still a wise decision...
