Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One has received glowing reviews, and while it's fallen slightly short of expectations at the domestic box office, the movie is off to a strong start overseas.

It's been a very strange summer for movies, with titles we all expected to be hits - The Flash and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, for example - proving to be expensive disasters for their respective studios.

Now, in the midst of a combined WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike, Hollywood has reached a standstill. Last year, Tom Cruise's Top Gun: Maverick was praised for "saving" the summer, but can the critically acclaimed Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One do the same? 

Deadline reports that the movie set a 5-day domestic record for the franchise with a solid $80 million haul. That tops 2000's Mission: Impossible II (which made $78.8 million), though this latest instalment hasn't quite managed to top what Fallout did back in 2018 over a 3-day period. 

Dead Reckoning Part One is coming in slightly below expectations in North America, though Cruise's movies have performed better overseas for several years now. In fact, as things stand, it's looking a lot like this action-packed latest instalment will have a global bow of $240 million. 

That's a solid start, and Christopher McQuarrie's latest entry in the long-running Mission: Impossible franchise is expected to have legs in the weeks ahead. 

Next weekend, Ethan Hunt will have to contend with Barbie and Oppenheimer (the former is expected to head straight to #1 with a massive debut), but overwhelmingly positive reviews and strong word of mouth are going to be majorly beneficial to Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One.

Why hasn't it come in higher during its opening weekend? 

It's hard to say for sure, particularly given the excitement surrounding the movie prior to its release. The franchise does skew older, though, and if 2023 has proved anything, it's that there's no longer any such thing as a guaranteed box office hit...

In it's opening week MI almost made as much as the Flash already. Talk about a gut punch to WBD.
TempleRod - 7/16/2023, 6:35 AM
@Godzilla2000Zer - The Flash is doing just fine. It's meeting goals for the type of movie IT IS.

MEANWHILE, However, we got this whole Tom Cruise piece of shit upon us.
And numbers are showing that people just aren't very receptive to YET ANOTHER INSTALLEMENT of Tom Cruise yanking his own dick stunts.

LOL. [frick]ing little ass ELF MAN LOSER.
I seriously beg anyone to do an ounce of research into how SERIOUSLY MESSED UP Scientology actually is.
it's just straight up [frick]ed up.
MEANWHILE ON THIS SITE AS WELL AS OTHERS, it's just somehow glossed over.
LOL. Have a nice day with that shit.

@TempleRod - “The Flash is doing just fine. It's meeting goals for the type of movie IT IS.”

By far the most deluded thing you’ve said on this site, and that’s saying something. The only milestone the Flash has hit is being the biggest bomb in WB history, because it quite literally failed to meet any of its set goals.

What world are you living on?
bobevanz - 7/16/2023, 8:48 AM
@Godzilla2000Zer - it also opened on Tuesday, and didn't have pitch forks and an angry Snyder cult, but you keep thinking that lol
TheHumanSpider2 - 7/16/2023, 9:40 AM
@TempleRod - This has to be a joke account.
kdav - 7/16/2023, 11:19 AM
@TempleRod - LOl, The Flash is doing fine (define fine..). The latest mission impossible is easily one of the best movies of the year, action or otherwise. Who cares what imaginary sky person he believes in?
iceballsreborn - 7/16/2023, 12:16 PM
@TempleRod - ok so you think Flash is doing fine? erm crazy. you think scientology is messed up? sure. but why make fun of short people. we dont make fun of religion, or race, or gender. largeness is a no no.
being 6'5'' is great now. not freakish

but still ok to make fun of short people. no. i say. im taking a stand for all my short brothers. anyone 5'8'' and below.. stand with me.
TempleRod - 7/16/2023, 6:29 AM
LOL at everyone here who was trying to act like this movie somehow was going to PROVE THE FLASH as a bad movie.

Now YOU CAN ALL SEE for yourselves.
There IS NO Magic in these numbers. ONLY REALITY.
People are tired of this same fare. Same old Cookie Cutter ACTION. TIME IN TIME OUT.
Another person, another face, WHO CARES?
And now the numbers are speaking. LOL.

Feet of clay.
WakandanQueen - 7/16/2023, 6:30 AM
@TempleRod - This is gonna make more than twice what The Flash did so, what exactly are you on about?
Cap1 - 7/16/2023, 6:41 AM
@TempleRod - yes, the numbers are speaking, by breaking franchise records and telling us interest has never been higher. Whilst we have The Flash, which is WB's biggest bomb in history. Flash's numbers aren't just speaking, they're screaming, crying, begging for help, to be put of out their torturous misery
TempleRod - 7/16/2023, 6:45 AM
@Cap1 - PEOPLE ARE TIRED of this kind of mid brow boring action movie FARE.

People crave something LARGER THAN LIFE. Tom Cruise IS NOT THAT. He's a tiny little man, and if you ACTUALLY BOTHERED TO LOOK INTO SCIENTOLOGY, before you responded to me.

YOU WOULD SEE exactly what is wrong with this guy.
Yet of course, here you are defending him and his output.
Godzilla2000Zer - 7/16/2023, 7:32 AM
@TempleRod - Dude I love The Flash but the fact is it bombed hard
JohnPain - 7/16/2023, 9:39 AM
@TempleRod -

Clearly they're not tired with that opening box-office.

McMurdo - 7/16/2023, 12:12 PM
@TempleRod - get help
WakandanQueen - 7/16/2023, 6:29 AM
Guardians in May
Spidey in June
MI in July

Not a bad summer.
TempleRod - 7/16/2023, 6:38 AM
@WakandanQueen - We did NOT HAVE 'Spidey in June'
What we had has some half baked cartoon that tried to appropriate Miles Morales as some kind of 'African American'.

Every single ad and everyone running around claiming he's the 'black Spider-Man'. Well guess what, NOT BLACK. Thankfully most of us know that RACE does not mean anything. THERE IS NO SUCH THING.
So go take your stupid cartoon in your little corner and crow over it like some measly treasure.
JOKE WILL always be ON YOU.
Cap1 - 7/16/2023, 6:43 AM
@TempleRod - were you dropped on your head as a baby ? and dropped every day since ?
WakandanQueen - 7/16/2023, 6:47 AM
@TempleRod - Cool.
TheHumanSpider2 - 7/16/2023, 9:41 AM
@WakandanQueen - How many bombs did we have? this is being considered the worst summer season in Hollywood's history.
ObserverIO - 7/16/2023, 6:32 AM
At the screening I went to the cinema was more packed than I've seen it recently. Not quite a full house, but almost, and it was an early in the daytime showing too.

This was a very entertaining flick. One gripe only; it should have ended 5 minutes earlier. Think about what the final set piece was. They chickened out.
AllsGood - 7/16/2023, 6:32 AM
Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One bringing the three-day domestic haul to $40.35 million. Less than the Flash 55 million and Indiana Jones 60 million.

"Domestically, Reckoning‘s results continue an unfortunate trend in the wake of The Flash and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. This marks three consecutive films aimed at adult men which have each fallen short of tracking and overall potential despite generally positive (and outright strong, in Mission‘s case) reception."
Chewtoy - 7/16/2023, 6:33 AM
Domestically, that’s behind Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’s first 5 days, and the film cost just as much. It’ll do fine overseas, although I don’t know how guaranteed legs are in this weird summer.
AllsGood - 7/16/2023, 6:38 AM
Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One has a 291-million-dollar budget these numbers are bad.

TempleRod - 7/16/2023, 6:41 AM
Another summer BOMB.

LOSING MONEY left and right.

Tom Cruise, the SCIENTOLOGIST, again returns with another FLOP.
theprophet - 7/16/2023, 8:50 AM
@TempleRod - flop?? Lol so top gun maverick was a summer flop?
CoHost - 7/16/2023, 6:45 AM
With a $290,000,000 price tag, not including a seemingly expensive marketing, this needs to make around $750-800m worldwide to break even. It's opening below the last one and that made $790m but cost less and didn't have much competition compared to this one, which has Barbenheimer to deal with. I doubt it'll have much legs. Don't think it'll be a huge bomb but I don't think it'll be much profitable if this is the start.
bobevanz - 7/16/2023, 8:54 AM
@CoHost - these summer blockbusters make less and less because the budgets keep growing. I'm guess they find with a 15% profit like Ant-Man lol
TheComedian67 - 7/16/2023, 3:30 PM
@bobevanz -

Plus people seem to be more frugal these days, and Covid gave us a life without the theater and I think a lot of people just got used to that, and realised how little they care about actually going to a theater anymore.
WakandanQueen - 7/16/2023, 6:52 AM
MI7 has made $40M through Friday, it's expected to hit a $55m FSS and ~$80m by Sunday, the end of its extended wknd. It should leg out to ~$200m domestically, since MI films are leggy. Its overseas gross is gonna be enough to push it to mid to higher $600ms worldwide.

Meanwhile, Indy will fizzle out at ~$170m dom and ~$400m ww.

It's obvious that one is in better shape than the other.
TempleRod - 7/16/2023, 7:04 AM
@WakandanQueen - LOL. Look at you bending over backward to defend this piece of shit SCIENTOLOGY movie.

It's just amusing to see the way you run yourself in circles to add up profit.
When IN REALITY. Another FLOP incoming.
WakandanQueen - 7/16/2023, 7:21 AM
@TempleRod - Point to me where I said this was gonna make any profit whatsoever please. I think I just compared it to Indy, like many people did and stated it's in better shape.

Which it is.

Meanwhile, you're acting like The Flash isn't a huge bomb.
AllsGood - 7/16/2023, 7:04 AM
Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One with all the raving Critic Reviews and Audience score this movie wasn't that great.

Dead Reckoning was to long boring the action was weak same old movie seen many times. Even jumping off the cliff was over hyped and could tell CGI was used.
TempleRod - 7/16/2023, 7:07 AM
@AllsGood - CGI was used in Every Single Shot that little Tom Cruise was on screen.
They de-age the [frick] out of him. Every single shot.
NO WONDER the budget is so high.
