Three months following its theatrical release, Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One is finally making its debut on digital platforms this week.
Beginning October 10, Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning, starring Tom Cruise, will be available for purchase and rental on various digital platforms, such as Amazon Prime, Google Play, Apple TV, Vudu, and more. The pricing may vary depending on the specific platform you choose to grab the film, but if you opt for Amazon Prime, it can be preordered for $19.99.
The digital release of Mission Impossible 7 will feature an array of bonus content. This includes a commentary session with director Christopher McQuarrie and editor Eddie Hamilton, an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse into the car chase scene set in Italy, deleted action sequences, and previously unreleased footage of Cruise’s daring cliffside stunt.
Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning is expected to become available on Paramount+ early next year. However, an official release date for the film on Paramount+ has not been confirmed. It’s worth noting that Paramount has not followed a consistent streaming release pattern, particularly in the case of Cruise’s films.
Top Gun: Maverick, a major Paramount release starring Tom Cruise from the previous year, followed a specific release timeline. It premiered in theaters on May 23, became available on digital platforms three months later, on August 23, and began streaming on Paramount+ approximately four months after that, specifically on December 22. If Mission Impossible 7 adheres to a similar release pattern, you can anticipate that Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One will be available for streaming on Paramount+ in February 2024.
The seventh installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise sees Ethan Hunt and the IMF team must track down a terrifying new weapon that threatens all of humanity. Alongside Cruise, it stars Hayley Atwell, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, and more.
Tom Cruise’s latest blockbuster didn’t reach Paramount’s box office expectations, though it still made $567 million globally with a $291 million budget. The movie took three months to hit digital platforms, which is longer than usual, as most films go online about a month after theater release. This prolonged wait might have been standard practice in the pre-COVID era, but nowadays, the majority of studio films are being made accessible through online retailers just over a month after their theatrical releases.
Perhaps the delay has something to do with Cruise’s crusade for preserving the importance of theaters?
