Mission Impossible 7 UK release date, age rating latest and more on Dead Reckoning Part 1

Mission Impossible 7 UK release date, age rating and parents guide

It’s time for more of the Tom Cruise action series that started way back in 1996, so here’s the Mission Impossible 7 UK release date, along with the latest on the Dead Reckoning Part 1 age rating certificate and our parents guide section below. You can also find agent briefing notes on the enigmatic plot and cast of the 7th entry in the series, along with our estimate for the runtime for the 2022 film.

The story synopsis for the plot hasn’t been confirmed as of yet, so there’s little to go on in terms of the new threat that Ethan Hunt and the Mission Impossible team will face this time around. However, the last time we saw him he was facing down the might of the Apostles in Fallout (2018), who were made up by the former members of Syndicate, which he took on in Rogue Nation (2015).

Apostle extremist August Walker may well have been hooked to death by Hunt at the end of Fallout, but anarchist maniac Solomon Lane (Sean Harris) is very much still alive, having been arrested by MI6. There’s no word on Sean Harris being a part of the Mission Impossible 7 cast as of yet, so we may well have seen the last of him, but equally he might just be pulling strings from the inside, similar to Blofeld in No Time to Die.


As with the story synopsis, the cast details are still fairly slim on the ground. Obviously, Tom Cruise (Top Gun 2 Maverick) will be back as IMF agent extraordinaire Ethan Hunt, taking on his 7th outing in the lead role. By extension, we can also assume that Ving Rhames (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2) will return as Luther Stickwell, along with Simon Pegg (Ice Age: Adventures of Buck Wild) as Benji Dunn and Rebecca Ferguson (Dune) as Isla Faust.

The Mission Impossible 7 cast also includes Rob Delaney (Catastrophe), Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen, Dad’s Army), Cary Elwes (Operation Fortune), Pom Klementieff (Thor Love and Thunder), and Hayley Atwell (Avengers: Endgame). We’ll update you with more details on the cast and the roles they all play as they’re confirmed.

Mission Impossible 7 UK release date

The Mission Impossible 7 UK release date has been scheduled for Wednesday the 28th September 2022, so it’s going to be one of the big films for early autumn. Its still a long way until it’s due to come out, but as things stand its closest competition at the box office is Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse, which releases on the 7th October 2022.

There are bound to be more films confirmed before we get too much close to the Dead Reckoning Part 1 date, but it looks like the 7th outing for the series has picked a quiet enough week. As such, it should take the number 1 spot at the box office. Although, in all fairness, with the success of the previous films, it would probably do fairly well even if there was another big film out on the same weekend.

The North America release date is planned for the Friday of the same week, so that will be the 30th September 2022, so well get to see it a couple of days early here in the UK. It’s a similar story for films out around the same time in the US, so it looks like it’s going to pick up the trans-Atlantic double.

The plan to come out in cinemas in September means that it should go on to arrive out on DVD, Blu-ray and digital in both the UK and North America around late November 2022, which is perfect for the Christmas home entertainment market.

Age rating and parents guide

The Mission Impossible 7 age rating won’t be announced by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) for the UK until a couple of weeks before the release date, but you can take a lot from the previous film. Fallout picked up a 12 certificate and it was a similar story for Rogue Nation, so this acts as a pretty strong benchmark for the 7th movie.

What that means for our Dead Reckoning Part 1 parents guide is that there’s a high likelihood of violence, without being too savage, and there’s bound to be more than an element of threat. The stunts in Mission Impossible films are usually big, dangerous and visually impactful, so that should be the same once again. Language is always fairly mild, so in-keeping for the potential of a 12 certificate (equivalent to a PG-13 in North America).

As ever, we’ll update you with more details on the film as they get confirmed. You can also check out our movie news section to keep tabs on the latest upcoming film release dates, age rating and parents guide details, or visit the Paramount Pictures website at https://www.paramount.com/.


As with the certificate, the Mission Impossible 7 Dead Reckoning Part 1 runtime won’t be announced until a week or so ahead of the release. However, if you look at Rogue Nation and Fallout the average is around 2 hours and 15 minutes, so that’s a pretty good estimate for the 7th film.
