'Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning - Part One' has been one of the most successful blockbusters of the year to date.

If you're a fan of the Tom Cruise series, however, there's bad news: you're going to be waiting longer than expected for the next installment.

It has been announced that the eighth 'Mission Impossible' film, which will rather confusingly not have the title 'Dead Reckoning - Part 2' but will follow on directly from 'Part One', has been pushed back by almost an entire year.

Paramount were due to release the action blockbuster in June 2024, but will now instead be released in May 2025.

The reason for its delay is down to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, which is no closer to being resolved - and which halted production on the film back in July.

The new MI film is one of the first big budget titles to be pushed back significantly, but it looks like the strike may see other big films suffer the same fate unless the union and the studios come to an agreement in the coming weeks.

In related news, the 'A Quiet Place' prequel - titled 'A Quiet Place: Day One' - has also been pushed back from a March 2024 release to June 2024.
