Yeah, 22 years old. That is an astounding fact for a number of reasons. When you look at franchises, the biggest one of all is probably Star Wars, but the Marvel cinematic Universe is right up there too. The Star Trek movie franchise has been around since 1979, and in western cinema at least, there are few others (trilogies don’t count). James Bond has been going since the 60s, but is showing its age. Mission Impossible may only have reached 6 movies, but it has endured for 22 years, and after the global commercial and critical success of Fallout, you’d put money on at least one more. As much as I enjoyed Mission Impossible 3, I have to agree with some critics that this is the best one yet.
