Where to watch every Mission: Impossible movie

For the seventh time, Tom Cruise reprises his role as IMF agent Ethan Hunt for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One. Once again, Ethan and his team — Luther Stickell (Ving Rhames), Benji Dunn (Simon Pegg), and Ilsa Faust (Rebecca Ferguson) — race to secure a weapon with the power to endanger all of humanity if it lands in the wrong hands. Standing in Ethan’s way is “The Entity,” a mysterious organization that will push Ethan and his team to its limits.

Since Mission: Impossible debuted in 1996, the film series has been one of the premier action franchises in Hollywood. Through six films, Ethan Hunt has become one of Cruise’s defining roles as he enters the pantheon of classic action stars. With a seventh and eighth film on the way, the Mission: Impossible franchise is not slowing down anytime soon.

Ahead of Dead Reckoning Part One, relive Ethan Hunt’s adventures by streaming every Mission: Impossible movie.

Mission: Impossible is one of the rare franchises that has improved with age. Thanks to Cruise’s dedication to practical effects, the stunts in Mission: Impossible are arguably the best in Hollywood. From the halo jump scene in Fallout to the plane hang in Rogue Nation, there is nothing Cruise won’t do to entertain an audience. The upcoming motorcycle jump in Dead Reckoning Part One will undoubtedly become one of the most memorable stunts in the series.

Mission: Impossible – Fallout was the highest-rated film in the franchise on Rotten Tomatoes with a 97% on the Tomatometer until Dead Reckoning Part One opened to a 99%. Mission: Impossible is in the top 20 for the highest-grossing film series of all time, with a combined gross of $3.5 billion worldwide.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One premieres in theaters on July 12.

Is Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1 streaming?
Tom Cruise looks and stares in Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One.

It's been five years since the release of Mission: Impossible - Fallout, but the latest film in the series has finally arrived. Tom Cruise and director Christopher McQuarrie have reunited for the new sequel, Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part 1, and this is a story that has finally given Ethan Hunt (Cruise) a foe that he can't easily dispatch. The Entity is something that Ethan has never had to contend with before, and it will push him and his team to their limits.

Mission: Impossible regulars Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, and Rebecca Ferguson are all back as Luther Stickell, Benji Dunn, and Ilsa Faust, respectively. Vanessa Kirby also reprises her role from Fallout as the White Widow, Alanna Mitsopolis. And for the first time since the original Mission: Impossible film in 1996, Henry Czerny has returned as IMF director Eugene Kittridge.

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part 1’s ending, explained
Tom Cruise and Hayley Atwell turn around in a small car, looking concerned.

Nearly three years ago, director Christopher McQuarrie started filming Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part 1, and it's been a long journey to get this sequel on the big screen. Franchise star Tom Cruise has been headlining the Mission: Impossible films since 1996 with increasingly risky stunts and over-the-top action that has kept audiences coming back for more. But Dead Reckoning Part 1 takes things to another level with a story that is too big for a single movie.

By most accounts, Dead Reckoning's two-movie adventure will mark the end of Cruise's Ethan Hunt and his time in the Impossible Mission Force. When the ending comes around for Part 1, Ethan's team has been forever changed, and even bigger challenges lie ahead in Part 2. If you need help making sense of it all, then you've come to the right place because we're about to dive in. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to keep reading, preferably after you've already seen Dead Reckoning Part 1.

All the Mission: Impossible movies, ranked from worst to best
Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt hanging above the floor in Mission: Impossible.

In 1996, Tom Cruise starred in two movies. One of those movies, Jerry Maguire, earned the actor his second Oscar nomination. The other film was Mission: Impossible, a film that drastically changed the course of his career. As Ethan Hunt, Mission: Impossible elevated Cruise into a bonafide action star, as he started his transition from dramatic and comedic movies to more action and sci-fi films.

Thirty years later, the Mission: Impossible franchise remains one of the most consistent series in Hollywood. Mission: Impossible continues to raise the stakes with each entry as Cruise risks his life with each death-defying stunt, all in the name of entertainment. Before Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One, we have a task for you to complete. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to read the Mission: Impossible movie rankings below and discover which one is the best in the series. Cue the theme song.
