THERE is no denying the fact that franchises rule the roost in Hollywood. Even though there are several films being made in the sphere of franchise filmmaking, one franchise which particularly stands out is Mission: Impossible.
Back in 1996, Tom Cruise revived a franchise when he featured in the first Mission: Impossible film as Ethan Hunt. In over last 25 years, the espionage has emerged as an iconic franchise in India and been an inspiration to several films, actors, and directors. In 1996, Mission Impossible was successful in earning Rs 2 crore in India. The film may not have been a blockbuster, but it still gave tough competition to other highest grossers at that time.
By the time second instalment of Mission Impossible film released, it was able to earn Rs 7 crore in India which meant it had grown by 250% as compared to the first installment. Following a gap of six years, MI 3 released in 2006.
Even though a spurt in revenue was expected, it couldn’t set the cash registers ringing at the box office. Mission Impossible 3 had earned Rs 10 crore in India which further translated into 42% over growth since the release of the second part.
Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol which had premiered in Dubai on December 7, 2011 was lauded by critics for its action sequences, Cruise’s impeccable performance, and Bird’s direction. By grossing $694 million worldwide, it emerged as the fifth-highest-grossing film of 2011. It was also declared the highest grossing film in the franchise and the highest grossing film starring Cruise until the release of Mission: Impossible – Fallout in 2018.
The film also found several takers in 2011. Even though it opened at Rs 4.50 crore, it became one of the highest-grossing Hollywood films in India by collecting Rs 46 crore. The film witnessed a spurt of 360% over the previous part.
The 2018 release, Fall Out, opened to a staggering figure of Rs 9.50 crore in India. According to reports, the film had surpassed the opening box office collection of its previous movies. The film had notched up opening weekend collections of Rs. 36.25 crore in India, which according to the website Box Office India, was excellent.
After being delayed for several years, Mission: Impossible -Dead Reckoning: Part 1 releases on July 12 and is expected to create several benchmarks for the franchise in India. According to trade analysts, it will witness a spurt of 35% on opening day over the last part and a 40-50% jump in the lifetime collections.
