Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One has officially locked in its runtime, and it's the longest Mission: Impossible movie yet - but still shorter than certain rumors had it at.
IGN can exclusively reveal that Dead Reckoning Part One will clock in at two hours and 36 minutes without credits, pushing it just past 2018's Mission: Impossible Fallout, which had a runtime of two hours and 27 minutes. Director/co-writer Christopher McQuarrie confirmed earlier this week that he had locked picture on Dead Reckoning Part One via an Instagram post.
The runtime of Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One has been the subject of plenty of speculation, especially after Paramount Global president Bob Bakish commented in March that the movie is "a complete thrill ride," but was still "too long" at that point (via IndieWire).
In recent weeks, rumors have begun to swirl about what that runtime could look like. As recently as earlier this week, an unconfirmed but widely circulated tweet claimed that it would come in at two hours and 45 minutes, which is not the case.
