Tom Cruise’s upcoming “Mission: Impossible” has crossed another hurdle after numerous delays. The film now has a title: “Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning – Part 1.”

On Thursday, Cruise revealed the news in a prerecorded message during Paramount’s CinemaCon press session in Las Vegas. Cruise appeared remotely from the South African set of the next “M:I” installment after “Dead Reckoning” — “Mission: Impossible 8,” which does not yet have a title.

Cruise delivered the message from atop a biplane. In addition to the announcement of the film’s title was the release of a trailer for “M:I7” that Deadline describes as “chilling.”

Christopher McQuarrie has returned to direct “Dead Reckoning” after helming the franchise’s fifth and sixth installments — 2015’s “Rogue Nation” and 2018’s “Fallout.”

In January, Paramount Pictures and Skydance announced that the release of “Mission: Impossible 7” would be pushed from Sept. 20, 2022 to July 14, 2023, while “Mission: Impossible 8,” previously set for July 2023, will instead open June 28, 2024.

It was reported early last year that Cruise, a producer on the flicks, enlisted robots to help him enforce safety protocols on the movie sets, having dropped “huge sums” of money to do so.

The set of “Mission: Impossible 7” was also home to a series of explosive tirades by Cruise, who reportedly launched into profanity-laden and high-volume rants when he saw people on set not adhering to safety protocols.
