Fourth “Mission: Impossible” moves release date … by a few days

By G. Clay Whittaker
Hollywoodnews.com: The next installment of “Mission: Impossible” has chosen to accept a later release date, moving it from Dec. 16 to the 21st and taking its fight closer to the holiday weekend.

Indiewire reported that Paramount Pictures is moving the film back five days. The fourth film, subtitled “Ghost Protocol,” will now be out of direct competition with Guy Ritchie’s “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” and the family comedy “Alvin and the Chipmunks” On the flip side, it will now be competing with the David Fincher version of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”

It’s possible that Paramount is moving the release date back because the film won’t be ready in time, but the more likely cause is a calculation by the studio to carve out a profit. They’re either backing away from the “Sherlock Holmes” and “Alvin and the Chipmunks” sequels, or crowding out “Girl with the Dragoon Tattoo” and Steven Spielberg’s “The Adventures of Tintin.”

Either decision would speak clearly to how the studio feels about “Mission: Impossible,” but it’s unclear this early whether they see it as weak or strong for the holidays. That said, the earliest trailer looks stunning, and coming out less than a week from Christmas usually means a film is ready to come out swinging.

Let’s just hope that J.J. Abrams producing number four is as good as J.J. Abrams directing number three.
