The specific date is July 27, 2018. The last weekend of the month is becoming a bit of a preferred release date for spy movies.
Cruise’s last M:I film, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, debuted on July 31, 2015. Universal had the U.S. launch of Jason Bourne on July 29 this year.
Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation had a U.S. opening weekend of $55.5 million, as part of a total U.S. box office of $195 million and $682.3 million globally.
Deadline noted that Warner Bros./DC Comics has an unspecified movie scheduled for the same date as M:I 6.
The Cruise M:I movies began in 1996. The producer-star will be 56 when the latest installment comes out.
