'Mission: Impossible III' Slashed by Chinese Censors

Mission: Impossible III has been re-edited before its release in China next month, because local censors objected to the way Shanghai was presented in the original cut.

The Tom Cruise blockbuster, which also stars recent Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman and Michelle Monaghan, angered government officials with its depiction of violence and poverty in the advanced city, and producers were more than happy to make the necessary adjustments.
