Jackie Chan Helps Lead A Revolution In Newest Trailer For 1911
While his martial-arts skills have always ranked Jackie Chan among the greatest action stars of all time, the Chinese actor is also well known for choosing comedy over drama. Hell, even his more serious films have a sense of levity simply because you can't help but smile and laugh as Chan pulls off death defying stunts and kicks serious ass. Watching the newest trailer for 1911, however, it would seem that this time around we won't be laughing very much. Check out the preview below or in HD over on Apple.
In addition to starring, Jackie Chan also co-directed and produced this new film, which is the 100th of his career. Set in 1911 (duh), the movie is about the creation of the Republic of China, when Sun Yat-sen (Winston Chao) led the overthrow of the Qing dynasty. Chan plays Huang Xing, a man who would end up being the commander-in-chief of the army after the revolution and was one of the founders of the Kuomintang (the Chinese Nationalist Party). While the movie is set to be released this week in China, it will be released in North America on October 7th.
