MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 7 & A QUIET PLACE PART II To Premiere On Paramount+ 45 Days After Theatrical Release
Well, it looks like the theatrical window may officially be a thing of the past as Paramount has revealed plans for its 2021 slate, announcing that many major releases will go to streaming after 45 days.
Paramount Pictures has officially confirmed today that Mission: Impossible 7 and A Quiet Place Part II will both have significantly shortened theatrical windows this fall, heading to its upcoming Paramount+ streaming service just 45 days after their slated theatrical release dates.
After several pandemic-related delays, the John Krasinski-directed horror sequel, which stars Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow; Jungle Cruise) in the lead role, will open in theaters on September 17 while the Tom Cruise-fronted action blockbuster, which is currently filming, is on track to arrive on November 19.
More major titles, including fellow Cruise actioner Top Gun: Maverick, Henry Golding's Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins, and the live-action/CGI family adventure Clifford the Big Red Dog, will make their way to the streaming service too, but not until next year after their respective theatrical runs and EPIX pay one debut.
In addition to Cruise, the highly anticipated Chris McQuarrie-directed action blockbuster also stars Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible - Fallout, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), Simon Pegg (Mission: Impossible - Fallout, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Fallout, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), Hayley Atwell (Avengers: Endgame; Captain America: The First Avenger), Pom Klementieff (Avengers: Endgame; Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2), Vanessa Kirby (Mission: Impossible - Fallout; Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), Shea Whigham (Perry Mason; Marvel's Agent Carter), Henry Czerny (Mission: Impossible; Supergirl), Esai Morales (Titans; La Bamba), and Angela Bassett (Soul; Mission: Impossible - Fallout).
Mission: Impossible 7 lights the fuse in theaters on November 19, 2021; followed by Mission: Impossible 8 on November 4, 2022.
