Continuing its streak of the expected, Mission: Impossible 5 Mission: Impossible – Cinco de Mayhem has been scheduled for a Christmas Day 2015 release. As Variety points out, that’s just a week after J.J. Abrams's other flick, Star Wars: Episode VII. As with past films, you’ll also see Tom Cruise as star and Abrams as producer, so be sure to thank screenwriter Drew Pearce for any actual surprises this time around.
