New MI3 Pictures
Chinese media have speculated that flashes of underwear and other "inappropriate" images in the China scenes of Mission Impossible 3 (MI3) might jeopardise the mainland release of Tom Cruise‘s latest Hollywood blockbuster. Despite hitting American screens over a week ago, China’s State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT), is yet to approve MI3‘s mainland distribution, the Beijing News newspaper said on Monday. Underwear hanging out to dry and other images "harmful to China" might be responsible, local papers have suggested. "In the Shanghai scenes, all the roofs and alleys have raggedy clothes hanging from bamboo sticks everywhere," said the Beijing Times.
Oh no!!!!!!!!! Underwear hanging from bamboo sticks everywhere!!!!!! Everbody run for your lives!!!!!!!!!! Mission Impossible 3 stayed atop the box office this weekend with an estimated $24.5 million in weekend ticket sales. Poseidon managed a disappointing $20.3 million.
