The next installment of Mission Impossible is set to smash into theaters at the end of this month. This one is titled Mission Impossible: Fallout starring none other than Tom Cruise. The Paramount and partner Skydance film is being directed by Christopher McQuarrie, who also directed the previous installment Rough Nation. That film brought in $55.5 million domestically when it launched and finished with $192 million domestically and $682 million worldwide.
Thanks to Variety we have we have the early tracking numbers for the release of Fallout, which is eyeing a domestic opening between $65 million on the high end and $45 million on the low end. Tracking has also shown that the total awareness for the film is at a 82%, with definite interest at 42% and unaided awareness at 16% for the sixth film of the franchise. In total the franchise has grossed $2.78 billion worldwide.
Cruise appeared at CinemaCon back in April, where he wowed audiences after giving details on one of the film’s stunts, where Cruise fell at 200 mph to complete a skydiving scene in 106 takes. The scene takes place over Paris where CIA agents Ethan Hunt and August Walked, played by Henry Cavill, skydive 25,000 feet into a lightning storm. Of course they are struck by lightning which leaves Walker unconscious, leaving Hunt with the task of reviving Walker before they reach the ground. You know typical Mission Impossible type stuff.
