Bar Is Closed

It was reported yesterday that the sequel to “Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One,” slated for release next summer in 2024, is now being delayed to summer 2025. This would seem to stem at least in part from the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, which this blog very much supports. If the next M:I needs to get pushed to the summer of the Brisbane Olympics in 2032 so SAG-AFTRA’s siege of the shareholders ends in victory, I’m all for it. Still, as I have written before, few event movies anymore feel that way to me, but the McQuarrie “Missions Impossible” do. I felt so excited walking to my neighborhood theater to see “Dead Reckoning Part One” this past July. I even waited until Sunday to see it to give myself a few extra days of anticipation. Plus, Tom Cruise could well be breaking into a submerged submarine in the new one just as I have always dreamed! I need to know! Even more than all that, though, well, I mean, like, you know, next year is 2024. That means it’s the American Presidential election. That means I have to wait to see “Dead Reckoning Part Two” until after the American Presidential election. I was counting on this movie to help get me through, man! Even worse, with the way things are going these days, and if the philistines get back in office, you never know, we might not see it at all.
