Tom Cruise’s next Mission: Impossible movie will be titled Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One.
The action man appeared in a pre-recorded message during Paramount’s presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Thursday to preview the trailer for the seventh outing of Mission: Impossible.
In true daredevil fashion, Cruise appeared in the video standing on a biplane over the mountains and said, “Sorry for the extra noise, as you can see we are filming the last episode of Mission : Impossible… To make this film for the big screen in your marvelous theaters.”
Director Christopher McQuarrie appeared on his own plane and told Cruise, “We gotta go, we’re losing the light,” so Cruise said to the camera, “Let’s all have a great summer.”
According to Deadline, McQuarrie then yelled “action” and the two planes rolled and dived, with Cruise seemingly still on top of his.
The 59-year-old appeared at CinemaCon in 2021 to promote the film before it was delayed by more than a year to July 2023. Part two, which is currently in filming, is set to be released in June 2024.
Although he was not present in Las Vegas, Cruise still had the biggest impact during the Paramount presentation as Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to his 1986 action-adventure, screened in whole for the first time for a wide audience. Critical response to the film, which will be released in May, has been universally positive so far.
Elsewhere during the Paramount presentation, studio officials announced that the next A Quiet Place spin-off will be titled A Quiet Place: Day One, hinting that it’s a prequel to the main franchise. . It will be directed by Michael Sarnoski.
