Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One is expected to have a great start at the box office, with previews bringing in $6M-$7M.
The movie is one of the longest films of the summer, clocking in at 2 hours and 43 minutes with credits. It is also the best reviewed Mission: Impossible movie of all time, with a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The action in the movie is unlike anything that has been seen in the Mission: Impossible or Fast and Furious franchises before. There is a car chase in Rome that is truly epic, and it is sure to leave audiences breathless.
Paramount is hoping for a Mission: Impossible franchise five-day record with a Wednesday start, and the movie is projected to have a $90M five-day stateside and $250M+ worldwide.
The last Mission: Impossible movie, Mission: Impossible – Fallout, had a domestic opening of $61.2 million. It went on to gross $220.1 million domestically and $791.6 million worldwide. Even if Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One comes up short this weekend, it is likely to have a strong performance in the weeks to come.
