Paramount has rescheduled ‘A Quiet Place: Day One’ by two months as part of its 2024 calendar reorganization in light of the ongoing labor disputes in Hollywood.
The next Mission: Impossible film starring Tom Cruise will not be returning to theaters in 2024. The second part of Dead Reckoning, Part Two appears to be omitted from the eighth installment of the action spy series; a new title is anticipated to be revealed at a later time.
The movie was originally scheduled to release on June 28, 2024, but Paramount and Skydance have pushed it back to May 23, 2025. Production on the film was halted so that star Cruise and the ensemble could promote Dead Reckoning, Part 1. Subsequently, in the middle of July, the SAG-AFTRA strike occurred, preventing the actors from going back to work on Christopher McQuarrie’s film.
If the strike isn’t ended in the next few weeks, more tentpoles will probably leave for the following year.
M:I 8 comes after Dead Reckoning, Part 1, which debuted in July and brought in $567.5 million worldwide. Part 1 had a rough go at the box office.
Cruise plays IMF agent Ethan Hunt in the film; other anticipated reunions include Hayley Atwell, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, and Vanessa Kirby. The original 1996 movie, which was based on the 1960s TV series, launched the Mission franchise. It is well-known for having filmed in various parts of the world and for having at least one iconic Cruise moment that frequently serves as the focal point of the company’s advertising campaign.
Imax cameras are being used for the eighth Mission, which will spend a full three weeks in Imax theaters. This comes after Oppenheimer caused M:I 7 to rapidly lose its Imax screens.
Paramount also underwent a slew of adjustments. A Quiet Place: Day One was rescheduled from March 8, 2024 to June 28, 2024, the old date of Dead Reckoning. The film, which features Lupita Nyong’o, is set in the same universe as the rural settings of John Krasinksi’s A Quiet Place films. Viewers witness the extraterrestrial invasion in the center of New York City this time.
The Ryan Reynolds and Krasinski film If was also pushed forward by one week, to May 17, 2024, by Paramount. Concurrently, the May 23, 2025, release date of an untitled Spongebob Squarepants film was rescheduled for December 19, 2025.
