The article reports on the delay of the release of the motion picture "Mission: Impossible 3," directed by J. J. Abrams in China. Senior government officials have decided a four-week delay on the release of the film due to its negative depiction of the country. Chinese distributors believe that the film has huge commercial potential in the country but it creates political sensitiveness due to the upcoming 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
