Mission: Impossible 5 (2015): Release Bumped Up To July

Paula Patton Tom Cruise

Mission: Impossible 5 Release Moved To July. In “event you totally never saw coming news”, Mission: Impossible 5’s scheduled release date has been moved up to July 31, 2015. This news comes as a surprise due to Paramount initially scheduling the film for a much later December 25, 2015 release. Apparently, Paramount was weary of the ominous “Spectre” of the next James Bond film potentially cannibalizing audiences looking to get their holiday season spy genre fix as well as the ever looming “menace” of the box office dollar consuming vortex that will be Star Wars: Episode 7.

Regardless of its release date, Mission: Impossible 5 is poised to hold its own at the box office. The Mission: Impossible film franchise dates back to 1996 and has earned over $2 billion at the global box office, with the last installment (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol)  staking its claim as the most successful film in the series raking in $694,713,380.

Here is a closer look at the worldwide box office returns of the Mission: Impossible Franchise

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011) $694.7 million

Mission: Impossible II (2000) $546.4 million

Mission: Impossible (1996) $457.7 million

Mission: Impossible III (2006) $397.9 million

Franchise Total Worldwide box office $2,096.6 billion
