Watch: First Quick Teaser for Jackie Chan's New Historical Epic '1911'
Yep, he's already made another (fairly epic) movie before you even knew it. Bleeding Cool found a trailer for an upcoming Chinese film titled 1911 that is apparently being billed as Jackie Chan's 100th feature film, not only because he stars in it but also because he co-directed. The film is a historical epic about "the founding of the Republic of China when nationalist forces led by Sun Yat-sen overthrew the Qing Dynasty." This is actually an early Japanese teaser for the Chinese film, so it's got a kind of classically epic feel to it, but I'm sure there's more to see of this. Jackie Chan does look awesome though. No subtitles, but still check it out!
