Tom Cruise's upcoming mission in "Mission: Impossible" is facing a significant delay, shifting its release date from June 28, 2024, to May 23, 2025. The delay stems from the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, which disrupted production. Several big-budget films may encounter similar fates if labor disputes between the actors' union and studios persist.

Consequently, "A Quiet Place: Day One," a prequel to the 2018 hit film, will now premiere on June 28, 2024, instead of its initial date, March 8, 2024. Additionally, an untitled animated "SpongeBob SquarePants" adventure has been rescheduled from May 23, 2025, to December 19, 2025.

Not all the news is about delays, as John Krasinski's "IF," a fantasy-comedy featuring Ryan Reynolds, Krasinski, Alan Kim, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, has been moved up from May 24, 2024, to May 17, 2024. The change grants the family film breathing space away from other Memorial Day releases like the "Mad Max" prequel "Furiosa," "Garfield," and "Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes." Nevertheless, the movie release calendar remains in flux as long as major productions remain disrupted.

The upcoming "Mission: Impossible" film will introduce a new title, as Paramount and Skydance have decided to remove the second part of its name, formerly known as "Dead Reckoning Part Two." It will directly continue the storyline from 2023's "Dead Reckoning Part One."

While the seventh "Mission" film, directed by Christopher McQuarrie, was positively reviewed, it didn't reach box office expectations, grossing $567 million worldwide. The sequel will enjoy a three-week exclusive Imax release, offering a unique viewing experience.
