Paramount Pictures released a new trailer for “Mission Impossible: Fallout” this week, just as tickets for the event go on pre-sale. The long-running franchise is set to hit theaters in just under a month, and fans can watch the latest video below. The official premiere date for “Fallout” is July 27th, the studio has been teasing the film with the logline “The best intentions often come back to haunt you.”
In “Mission Impossible: Fallout” Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan, Simon Pegg) are in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Joining the cast this time around are Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby, Christopher McQuarrie returned to franchise to direct the film.
Paramount Pictures will have a lot of competition at the July box-office this year, which could be a damper on Fallout’s opening weekend. Disney is gearing up to release “Ant-Man and the Wasp” on July 6th, and Sony is releasing “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation” and “The Equalizer 2” on different weekends. Universal Pictures has an action-thriller of its own planned for July, Dwayne Johnson’s “Skyscraper,” along with the thriller “The First Purge” and the musical “Mama Mia 2”. Warner Bros. Pictures is releasing “Teen Titans Go! To The Movies” in July as well, which could split the box-office in the teen group. It’s an interesting mix of action-thrillers and animated-comedies in July, and it will be interesting to see which films dominate the holiday weekends.
“Mission Impossible: Fallout” has a tough high-score to conquer at the box-office. The highest grossing installment has been “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol,” which mad $209M domestically before grossing over $694M worldwide. That will be the number that ‘Fallout’ hopes to topple at the box-office, and it will want to outscore the $57M opening weekend that “Mission Impossible II” had.
Pre-sale tickets for “Mission Impossible: Fallout” are available, you can find them on sites like Fandango.com.
