Despite Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One earning roughly $523 million at the box office, the latest installment may struggle to see a profit. Tom Cruise returns as Ethan Hunt in the seventh entry of the Mission: Impossible franchise. Although the action thriller was one of the most anticipated movies of the year, the box office debut performance was shockingly underwhelming, earning just $54.6 million domestically. Even though the Cruise-led movie has fared better internationally, it has still yet to crack the breakeven point.
Now, Variety reports that Mission: Impossible 7 may likely lose roughly $100 million in profits. This comes as the movie is reported to have cost roughly $300 million, excluding marketing expenses. The marketing spending is estimated to be about another $100 million. One source claims the movie may break even if it makes $600 million at the global box office. Although the movie is still a long way from that feat, one analyst, Jeff Bock, believes that the tentpole film and others like it could make up the difference and earn more through streaming and on-demand.
