Mission Impossible 7: Tom Cruise’s Actioner Now November 19, 2021

Mission Impossible 7, set for release next year, is moving back four months as Paramount reshuffles its slate because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Tom Cruise film will now open in theaters on November 19, 2021.

The next installment in Tom Cruise’s franchise had originally been scheduled for July 23, 2021; that date will now be the launching pad for Paramount’s sci-fi tentpole The Tomorrow War.

Starring Chris Pratt, The Tomorrow War had originally been set to open in December of this year.

Mission: Impossible 7 will play on Thanksgiving, shifting Dungeons & Dragons from November 19, 2021 to May 27, 2022.

Mission: Impossible 8 has also been impacted, and will now open on November 4, 2022 instead of Aug. 5, 2022.

Skydance is Paramount’s partner on the Mission: Impossible series.

The pandemic has resulted in theater closures and production delays that have impacted 2020 and 2021 releases.

Paramount also has taken horror-thriller Spell, previously scheduled for August 28, 2020, off of the calendar.

Paw Patrol is now dated for August 20, 2021.
