‘Mission: Impossible’ Bests Winnie-The-Pooh At Box Office

Winnie-the-Pooh can't stop 'Mission Impossible'

Paramount s "Mission", the sixth stunt-filled edition in the popular franchise, took in an estimated $35 million for the three-day weekend. It opens in China on August 31.

The PG film was just recently released in the States and stars Ewan McGregor as a grown-up Christopher Robin. The film made its debut to a $153.5 million weekend at the worldwide box-office.

This new adaptation of Winnie the Pooh shows an adult Christopher Robin reuniting with his long lost buddy, but the movie is not allowed to be shown in China. Maybe regulators thought the movie was too twee?

China's refusal to release the film was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

The film also features the voices of: Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh and Tigger; Brad Garrett as Eeyore; Toby Jones as Owl; Nick Mohammed as Piglet; Peter Capaldi as Rabbit; and Sophie Okonedo as Kanga.

Amandla Stenberg, Mandy Moore and Gwendoline Christie round out the cast. The documentary, now has a 0 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, is the lowest wide release to date for the right-wing conservative filmmaker.
