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. Enjoy this new set of Mission Impossible 3 stills. Above are MI3 co-stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Maggie Q. More pictures in the gallery including Keri Russell, Laurence Fishburne and Ving Rhames.

Maggie Q Interview Magazine

Action vixen Maggie Q brings new meaning to the term "bicoastal." The 27-year-old star of Asian cinema divides her time between Los Angeles and Hong Kong, a geographical split reflected in her career. "For me," she says, "getting on a plane is like getting into a cab." In the Far East, the actress has appeared in numerous popular films, on the covers of Time and Cosmopolitan, and in ads for Coca-Cola and Shiseido.

In Hollywood, meanwhile, her star is still rising: Bit parts in Rush Hour 2 (2001) and Around the World in 80 Days (2004) were a run-up to her role in this month’s Mission: Impossible III. Q plays Zhen, one of the principal members of the special assignment team that includes Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames, and Laurence Fishburne. "I was trained by a technical-weapons expert," she says. "It was very weird. My instructor would joke, ‘You know, Maggie, when I kill people . . .’ And I’d be like, ‘What? What the hell did you just say?’"

Born Maggie Quigley in Honolulu to a Vietnamese mother and American father, the actress grew up with four older siblings. She envisioned herself a lawyer, a journalist, or maybe a veterinarian. But after a trip to Tokyo that led to a series of modeling gigs, she decided to start acting. She starred in House of the Dragon, a Chinese television series, and she’s acted steadily ever since. "You do a movie in Hong Kong and the process is the same as it is on M:I3, except that the movie’s not backed by $160 million," she says. "But the things that you learn and the things that you experience are similar."

Tom Cruise Bomb


A newspaper promotion for Tom Cruise‘s upcoming "Mission: Impossible III" got off to an explosive start when a county arson squad blew up a news rack, thinking it contained a bomb. The confusion: The Los Angeles Times rack was fitted with a digital musical device designed to play the "Mission: Impossible" theme song when the door was opened. But in some cases, the red plastic boxes with protruding wires were jarred loose and dropped onto the stack of newspapers inside, alarming customers. Sheriff’s officials said they rendered the news rack in this suburb 35 miles north of downtown Los Angeles "safe" after being called to the scene Friday by a concerned individual who thought he’d seen a bomb. Times officials said the devices were placed in 4,500 randomly selected news boxes in Los Angeles and Ventura counties in a venture with Paramount Pictures designed to turn the "everyday news rack experience" into an "extraordinary mission." It was just that, at least for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department arson squad, which destroyed the box. "This was the least intended outcome. We weren’t expecting anything like this," said John O’Loughlin, the Times‘ senior vice president for planning. The devices are to remain in the boxes until May 7, two days after the film is scheduled to open.

Oh yes, just what we need.  More bomb scares! Below :: Members of the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department inspect a newspaper rack in Santa Clarita, Calif., on Friday. A promotion for "Mission: Impossible III" got off to an explosive start when a county arson squad blew up a news rack, thinking it contained a bomb.
