“I don’t know if this is going to happen in other countries, but Mission: Impossible III opened in France yesterday (Wednesday, 5.3) and compared to the first Mission films the numbers were alarming: 120,000 admissions in Paris for M:I:3 vs. 244,000 for the DePalma on opening day, and 338,000 for the John Woo. Was the weather too bright and shiny in Paris yesterday, or is a tired-of-Cruise effect starting to kick in?” — Mathieu Carratier , journalist, Paris, France
