Jackie Chan’s ‘Chinese Zodiac’ Gets an Action-Packed Trailer
Supposedly ‘Chinese Zodiac‘ is Jackie Chan‘s last big action movie. That would be easier to believe if he didn’t have at least one more action movie lined up, and word is he might be back for ‘Rush Hour 4.’ Regardless, if ‘Chinese Zodiac’ becomes his final foot-to-ass film, it looks like he’ll be going out on top.
The latest trailer for ‘Chinese Zodiac’ comes from Twitch film, and though there’s no English subtitles, who needs them? Here we see Chan wearing a rollerblade suit which allows him to covertly work around an army and take people out. Though there’s some CGI and stunt doubles, this looks insane and spectacular.
In May, Chan announced that he would be retiring, saying about ‘Chinese Zodiac’:
This is my last action film. I tell you, I’m not young any more. I’m really, really tired. And the world is too violent right now. It’s a dilemma – I like action but I don’t like violence.”
At least this sequence is not that violent, and feels like a throwback to earlier Jackie Chan films. There’s no official U.S. release date for ‘Chinese Zodiac,’ though it’s currently scheduled to open in Hong Kong this December, which means if we’re lucky and/or someone thinks they can sell this to Americans, we could get it next Spring.
