Mission: Impossible Fans are Devastated by Latest Release Delay
Today is a sad day for fans of Mission: Impossible. The Tom Cruise-led action franchise began over 25 years ago with the sixth installment, Mission: Impossible – Fallout, hitting theaters back in 2018. Christopher McQuarrie's seventh installment was originally supposed to be released last year, but it was delayed until September of this year. Sadly, the movie has now been pushed back to July 14, 2023, and Mission: Impossible 8 will now open on June 28, 2024. The long wait for the movie, which took over a year to film, has fans taking to social media to express their sadness.
Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions released a statement on Mission: Impossible's latest set of delays: "After thoughtful consideration, Paramount Pictures and Skydance have decided to postpone the release dates for Mission: Impossible 7 & 8 in response to delays due to the ongoing pandemic. The new release dates will be July 14, 2023, and June 28, 2024, respectively. We look forward to providing moviegoers with an unparalleled theatrical experience."

This Is Getting Ridiculous
MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 7 delayed again, moving from Sept. 30, 2022 to July 14, 2023. That means M:I8 is moving from July 7, 2023 to June 28, 2024.
If you'll recall, M:I7 was supposed to open in July 2021, then it was pushed to November 2021, then May 2022, then September 2022.— Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) January 21, 2022
