Due to the actors' strike: Mission Impossible Eight has been postponed for over a year

The release dates for numerous movies, including M: I8 and A Quiet Place: Day One, have changed, according to Paramount.

Even though Ethan Hunt has undertaken many challenging missions over the past three decades, he cannot stop a union strike. 

Due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, Paramount has announced that the release date of the eighth Mission: Impossible movie has been moved from June 28, 2024, to May 23, 2025.

Although it will still be a direct sequel to last year's Dead Reckoning Part One, Paramount has removed the film's awkward subtitle from its previous title, Mission: Impossible — Dead Reckoning Part Two.

Despite having a $291 million budget, the Tom Cruise movie surprised everyone by underperforming, earning only $172.1 million domestically and $567.5 million globally. Dead Reckoning Part One's theatrical run was longer than its title by dropping out of the top five in its fourth week of release. Therefore, a year's postponement will undoubtedly benefit the ailing franchise.

owever, M: I8 is one of many franchise movies that have experienced delays. An untitled Spongebob Squarepants movie was shifted from May 23, 2024, to December 19, 2024, while the third installment of the franchise and spinoff prequel A Quiet Place: Day One was postponed from March 8, 2024, to June 28, 2024.

The movie Imaginary Friends, sometimes known as IF, directed by John Krasinski and starring Ryan Reynolds, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, and Steve Carrell, was bumped forward a week. Instead of being published on May 24 next year, it will be May 17.

Regarding the strike, the actors' union celebrated the 100th day of the action halt over the weekend with plans to meet with the AMPTP again on Tuesday.
