Fans of the Mission Impossible movie franchise will have an eventful Christmas on 2015, as Mission: Impossible 5’s release date has been confirmed to be December 25 on that same year. The film will see the return of Tom Cruise as the dashing superspy Ethan Hunt, on yet another action-packed outing. There’s no announcement yet regarding the plot, but we think it’s safe to assume that there’s a lot of sprinting involved.
The Christmas 2015 release date of Mission Impossible 5 shows that Paramount is extremely confident of the film’s pull at the box office, because that will put it on a collision course with Star Wars: Episode VII, which is going to open in theaters a week earlier. Most other film studios would have moved their releases further or earlier in order to avoid going toe to toe with Disney’s Sci-Fi juggernaut.
