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!

Watch the first Japanese trailer for Jackie Chan & Li Zhang's Chinese film 1911:

A historical drama about the founding of the Republic of China when nationalist forces led by Sun Yat-sen overthrew the Qing Dynasty. This also co-stars: Bing Bing Lee, Wen Xuan Zhao, Joan Chen & Jaycee Chan.

1911 is actually co-directed by actor Jackie Chan, who's directed films like Dragon Strike, Project A, Police Story 1 & 2 before, as well as Li Zhang, a cinematographer making his directing debut after working as the DP on films like Red Cliff, A World Without Thieves, Roaring Across the Horizon and The Banquet. This is being released in the US by Well Go the same date as in China, starting Wednesday, October 12th, this fall.

    Now THAT is how you do a teaser.  It has left me intrigued, and I can't wait to see a trailer with some English subtitles.  I'm enjoying this new drama film side of Jackie Chan.

    So let me get this straight. The Communists are the protagonists in this story? Jackie Chan, what a sell out!

      That was kinda my thought too, pretty much feels like it wants us to sympathize with a buncha commies.

      The 1911 Revolution regards how the Republic of China "ROC" (Nationalists) overthrew the Qing Dynasty (and all its corruption), not the Communists (People's Republic of China or PRC).  After decades of civil war, the Nationalists ended up losing to the Communists in 1949 whose party molded China the way we know now.  It also says "Nationalists" in the description.

    I can already tell you that this movie aint gonna have shit on The Tuxedo!But in all honestly this does look very interesting, very pretty for the mosr part but id be quite interested in seeing some more of the battle scenes, that short scene at the end with the flag and what not, that was badd asss
  • Quazzimotto
    Liked the look of this. Be interesting to follow for sure. Nice to see Chan doing something outside of his element.

    I believe I heard him announce it on a Thai TV-programme. His first dramatic role he described it. I saw more images than just this. He said he wanted to do this long time, but never found the right time nor director. Until he was at a set where Li Zhang asked him to make a movie together, and thus the 1911 project started up.

    Thank God he's stretching his prowess, I knew he had it in him. No if theirs a cameo by either Jaden Smith or Chris Tucker I'm gonna fucking puke.
  • Xerxexx
    I'm...I'm pretty much in.
  • outofnormal
    Nationalists fighting to Wagner. interesting. Hitler's personal favorite so it doesn't seem to go well with the Nationalists. I will have to wait and see how it's used.

    Am I the only one finding it strange that the trailer was in Japanese and it was a film about China?
