Tom Cruise's current hit movie 'Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One' is performing excellently at the international box office, generating a total of $155 million from 70 nations, Variety states.
Estimates suggest that in its first five days, 'Mission: Impossible 7' has earned $80 million domestically and $235 million on a global scale.
Despite the cost, the movie had Cruise executing a daredevil motorcycle jump off a mountain, scaling a runaway train and driving a small car in the busy roads of Rome, which made it rather expensive to produce. As a result of kick-offs and shutdowns during the coronavirus pandemic together with other safety guidelines, Paramount and Skydance spent $291 million prior to costs for marketing, an amount which is much higher than the $190 million spent on 'Mission: Impossible – Fallout,' as mentioned by Slash Film.
Christopher Nolan's 'Oppenheimer' and Greta Gerwig's 'Barbie' debuting on July 21, 'Dead Reckoning Part One' stands to measure success if it can reverberate at the international box office and bring in a tidy sum for its theatrical release.
Christopher McQuarrie was back in the director's chair for 'Dead Reckoning Part One,' following Ethan Hunt and his team in the Impossible Mission Force as they battle a mysterious, immensely powerful artificial intelligence called the Entity. This excellent cast also includes Hayley Atwell, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Esai Morales, Vanessa Kirby and Pom Klementieff.
