The seventh Mission: Impossible film has officially arrived. Dead Reckoning Part One brings back a familiar face from Ethan Hunt’s past – Eugene Kittridge. In true series fashion, Hunt going rogue may put them on opposite paths.
If you want a reminder of the previous movies, then you’re in luck – we’ve put together a quick guide on how to watch the Mission: Impossible films in order, and where to stream them in the US and UK. We have a similar guide for watching the Marvel films in order.

How to watch the Mission: Impossible films in order
The order for watching for the Mission: Impossible films is easy – you just follow the release dates:
- Mission: Impossible (1996)
- Mission: Impossible 2 (2000)
- Mission: Impossible III (2006)
- Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011)
- Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015)
- Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018)
- Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One
- Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part Two (To be released – 2024)
Note that this list is just for the Tom Cruise films. Before all of these, there are the TV series (and singular film) which largely follow IMF director Jim Phelps – a character played by several actors across the years. The movies following Ethan Hunt work as sequels of sorts to these stories.
They aren’t compulsory watching, but here are the release dates (which put them before the list above):
- Mission: Impossible (1966-1973)
- Mission: Impossible vs. the Mob (1969)
- Mission: Impossible (1988-1990)
How to watch the Mission: Impossible films in the US
In the US, the easiest way to watch all the Mission: Impossible films (apart from the latest one which is exclusive to theatres right now) is to stream them on Paramount+.
Accounts cost $5.99 for ad-supported viewing, and $11.99 for ad-free viewing with Showtime content. This platform also carries the sixties television series. You can also get Paramount+ through Amazon Channels.
New users can get a seven-day free trial, though Paramount+ sometimes offers promotions of up to a month for no additional cost. The free streaming service Pluto also has Rogue Nation available to watch.
Mission: Impossible vs. the Mob and the eighties Mission: Impossible series aren’t available on Paramount+, so you’ll have to rent or buy these.
You can get all other Mission: Impossible instalments from the likes of Prime Video, Google Play and YouTube.
How to watch the Mission: Impossible films in the UK
UK viewers can catch all the Tom Cruise Mission: Impossible films on Paramount+ (£6.99 per month with a seven-day free trial), as well as Sky’s streaming service Now via the Cinema Membership, priced at £9.99 per month.
There isn’t a free trial for Now but bundles for new customers are available. Sky Cinema customers also have access to these films.
In addition, Mission: Impossible, Mission: Impossible II and Mission: Impossible III are all available to stream for free on Channel 4’s streaming service. You can also get Paramount+ through Amazon Channels.
Again, the Jim Phelps saga isn’t available on any streaming services, so you’ll need to buy or rent them.
You can also get all the Tom Cruise flicks on Prime Video, Google Play and YouTube.
