The highly-anticipated movie "Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One" will be the longest entry in the franchise.

The runtime for the upcoming movie will clock in at two hours and 36 minutes without credits. In contrast, 2018's "Mission Impossible: Fallout", the longest movie in the franchise by far had a runtime of two hours and 27 minutes.

Compared to the original movie which stood at a modest runtime of 50 minutes, Mission Impossible movies have slowly and steadily increased their run time following the larger trend that has more and more blockbusters clocking in around two and a half hours.

The upcoming movie then leaped to two hours and four minutes and "Mission Impossible 3" stood at two hours and six minutes, then increasing with each movie in the franchise.
