Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One | Official Trailer (2023 Movie) - Tom Cruise

Even with that trailer you don’t quite know exactly what’s going on in the movie. Like, why does Ethan need to jump off that cliff when he’s also looking for some kind of key? We don’t know. What we do know is that this movie was originally announced in 2019 for a 2021 release date and, because of covid and several other factors, we’re just now, in 2023, getting to see it. That’s a long time to make a movie but at least we also get a second movie out of it. Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part II, which wraps up this story—and maybe Ethan Hunt’s story entirely—is on the way on June 28, 2024. We wouldn’t be surprised if a trailer or some kind of tease of that made its way out with this movie, but that’s speculative.


We’ll all find out when Mission: Impossible -Dead Reckoning Part 1 hits theaters July 12.
