Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One has become one of the biggest films of the year on its release in July. The movie saw Ethan Hunt and the IMF team tasked with tracking down a terrifying and powerful weapon that would threatenns all of humanity if it fell into the wrong hands.
Despite the heavy competition from Oppenheimer and Barbie, MI 7 made more than $550 million at the box office, though given its huge budget of nearly $300 million (not including promotion costs), producers may have been hoping for even more.
With the action sequel about to come out on DVD and BluRay, the film is likely to increase its taking further as fans of physical media rush to buy a carbon copy of the DVD.
If Netflix has taught us anything with its constant announcements of the removal of major titles from its platform (Peep Show and Fresh Meat are among the latest victims) it’s the value of owning a real, physical copy of your favourite films and shows.
So, whilst DVD sales may have dropped off in the streaming era, there will be many movie buffs eagerly awaiting the Mission Impossible 7 disc release, ahead of the cinematic opening of Dead Reckoning part 2 next year.
