Mission: Impossible 7 trailer leaks online – and fans are losing their minds
Update: The first trailer for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning: Part One is now officially released. You can watch it here.
The first trailer for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning: Part One (or Mission: Impossible 7 for those in a hurry) has reportedly leaked online – and fans couldn’t seem more excited.
The two-minute promo spot, which officially premiered at CinemaCon last month, was leaked on social media for several hours on May 21. Paramount Pictures has since deleted the footage, although it appears to have left a strong impression on those who captured it.
We’ll round up a handful of social media reactions to the Mission: Impossible 7 trailer below, but if you haven’t caught a glimpse of Ethan Hunt’s long-awaited return to action, fear not. : Actor Simon Pegg has confirmed via Instagram that the footage will officially release globally on May 23.
Mission: Impossible 7 is slated for a theatrical release on July 14, 2022, with its sequel, Dead Reckoning: Part Two (or Mission: Impossible 7.5?), scheduled for June 28, 2024.
Upcoming action films will mark the last in the series for main man Tom Cruise – although judging by the reactions to the trailer for the first part, the veteran actor is about to bow out.
“[The] new Mission Impossible trailer makes the latest Bond movie look like a watch commercial,” a Tweeter respond to leaked images read, while another social media user wrote: “Sex is good, but have you seen the trailer for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning: Part One?
“I just saw the new trailer for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning: Part One and I believe in God again,” exclaimed another excited fan on Twitter.

“[A] The main side effect of watching this leaked Mission: Impossible trailer is that I’m not looking forward to any more movies this year and now want to fast forward to 2023,” another trailer watcher wrote.
At the sound of things, then, Mission: Impossible 7 raises the bar again for Ethan Hunt and company – but let’s be honest: we expected nothing less.
In a 2021 interview with Deadline, Cruise alluded to a sequence in the upcoming film in which the actor rides a motorbike on the edge of a cliff in Norway. “It was by far the most dangerous thing I’ve attempted,” Cruise admitted at the time, adding that the stunt is something he “wanted to do ever since. [he] was a small child.
Considering the star scaled Dubai’s Burj Khalifa without a harness in Ghost Protocol, clung to the outside of a plane in Rogue Nation, and jumped out the back of a plane at 25,000 feet in Fallout, it’s safe to say we’re thrilled with Mission: Impossible 7.
We’ll have more on the movie’s official trailer when it arrives this week, so stay tuned to TechRadar for details on all things Mission: Impossible 7.
