Watch: New Official US Trailer for Jackie Chan's '1911' Historical Epic
When an empire is torn between power and corrupt, a revolution begins! Well Go USA and Variance Films have released an official US trailer on Apple, that barely runs a minute long, for 1911, the Chinese historical epic co-directed by Jackie Chan and Li Zhang. 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" and Jackie Chan also stars as Huang Xing, along with Li Bingbing, Winston Chao, Joan Chen and Jaycee Chan. We've already seen one trailer and this one doesn't feature any dialogue, just scenes, but it looks awesome. Check this out!

I hope this gets a nod and I hope it beats out J.Edgar for best picture. I'm over Clint and Leo.

Would be sweet but I don't think the Academy like films about Communism. It's a Shame.

It's not about Communism. Get your history straight.

coooooooooool.... but there wasn't just one revolution in China in the past 100 years... there were several. I'm still waiting for a epic movie about the tiananmen square massacre.

I bet you are the only one waiting.

probably. China will never allow such a movie to be made on their soil cause they don't want you to know the truth... But there are some great documentaries out there. China: 100 Years of Revolution, Tank Man, etc. Still, a cinematic film based on those events would be nice too. One day...

hope it gets nominated for best foreign film at the academy, i just think jackie deserves to be honored at the oscars, or anywhere, for his contribution to film. he is one of my all time heroes , my fav movies by him are police story and miracles.

So this film is about the rise of Communist China. Jackie Chan, what a sell out!

I've posted above, but Sun Yat Sen wasn't Communist. How about doing some reading before making asinine comments and reinforcing the stereotype that Americans are stupid?

Agree with Steve. The Republic of China, founded in 1911, was the government that the Communists subverted and overthrew. It still survives, sort of, on the island of Taiwan today.

A film about the start of the Republic of China. Do they mean the communist one?

Wait, Jackie Chan can act?

If there's one thing that the Communists and Nationalists can agree on, it's that Sun Yat-sen was a great man.
