During the Super Bowl, Paramount Pictures released the first trailer for “Mission Impossible 6,” and if you missed it during the big-game, you can watch the trailer below. The sixth installment to the long-running franchise will release this summer, and is going by the title “Mission Impossible: Fallout”.

“Mission Impossible Fallout” was directed by Christopher McQuarrie, and features Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Ving Rhames, Sean Harris, Angela Bassett, Vanessa Kirby, Michelle Monaghan, Alec Baldwin, Wes Bentley, and Frederick Schmidt. In the film Ethan Hunt and his IMF team are scrambling to right the wrongs caused by one of their missions.

So you may be wondering how the “Mission Impossible” franchise has been doing over years, and as it turns out, it’s doing very well. The first “Mission Impossible” film was released back in 1996, and was directed by Brian De Palma. “Mission Impossible 1” had a $45M opening weekend and made over $180M domestically. The first film in the franchise then went on to gross over $457M worldwide, and everyone knew that a sequel was on the way. “Mission Impossible 2” switched directors, this time John Woo took over the role. The 2000 sequel reached new heights for the franchise across the board, opening at number-one with a $57M weekend before going on to make $546M worldwide. When J.J. Abrams took over as director of the 2006 “Mission Impossible 3” installment, the franchise slipped for the first time. The third film still managed to open at number-one, bringing in $47M on opening weekend, but the $397M worldwide total wasn’t enough to top the sequel. Brad Bird came on as director for “Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol” and the film hit a new high-water mark. The fourth installment opened with a $29M wide-release, after the film’s limited-opening debut, and managed to hit $694M before leaving theaters in 2011. In 2015, “Mission Impossible 5: Rogue Nation” came very close to beating that record with director Christopher McQuarrie, and went on to make over $682M worldwide.

So here we are, over $2.7B in ticket-sales later and Paramount has another installment for us to enjoy. Paramount Pictures will release “Mission Impossibe: Fallout”in theaters on July 27, 2018
