And most are the more recent films.

And some have been slated for not being very good quality transfers.

Armour of God 3? F**k me, that was delayed sequel! OPERATION CONDOR was a bit poor as I recall.

Hey Operation Condor was great, awful DVD release mind you.

I just hope this isn't another New Police Story... Jackie just ain't that guy any more.

There's a promotional trailer for Chinese Zodiac - let the anticipation begin. Oh and it'll be in IMAX!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0O0S88nLuR4&feature=player_embedded

The first promotional trailer revealing the concept behind the upcoming movie "Chinese Zodiac", co-produced by JCE Entertainment Ltd., Huayi Brothers and Emperor Mothion Pictures, was released on December 12. The production companies also announced that the movie will hit cinema screens on the same day next year, December 12, 2012, mtime.com reports.

Accompanied by a rapid and fierce rhythm, and presented in a chilling style, the trailer provides glimpses of thrilling gun battles, parachute dives, car races and ferocious dogfight combat scenes; declaring that the authentic Jackie Chan kung fu movie is back.

The concept trailer of "Chinese Zodiac" presents a retrospective montage of Jackie Chan's classic action films in chronological order, including "Drunken Monkey in the Tiger's Eyes" (1978), "Jackie Chan's Police Story" (1985), "Armour of God" (1987), "Project Eagle" (1991), "Jui kuen II" (1994), "Rumble in the Bronx" (1995), "Who Am I?" (1998) and "Rush Hour II" (2001). However, due to the fact that "Chinese Zodiac" is currently being filmed, no actual scenes from the movie have been revealed in the trailer.

Being Jackie Chan's 101st movie, filming for "Chinese Zodiac" began in June this year in France. During the shoot, the cast were allowed to enter the Chateau de Chantilly and Les Collections Du Musee Conde; this being the first time for a movie to be filmed in the Chateau. The cast even utilized national cultural relics including a chair of Louis XVI.

In order to display the sense of speed and potency of the action sequences, the production companies behind "Chinese Zodiac" has successfully signed a contract with IMAX, making this the first large screen Jackie Chan film.

The lack of excitement here... disturbs me.

Hmm. Wonder what they're counting and what they're not. If you count every film he's been invloved it'll be at least his 137th movie.
There are 3 films were he was uncredited, and maybe another 20 where he just cameoed, but excluding those still makes it around his 114th.

Anyway, yes Timon, I'm excited. But I'm not that excited, cos it's a whole 'nother year to wait before it even gets a HK cinema release. If it gets a UK cinema release, I highly doubt I'll get to see it the IMAX version, and being that I ain't managed to get to the cinema for almost 2 years, I'll probably have to wait at least a couple more months for the home media releases.

Great to see Jackie back in the director's chair. Well I doubt he's ever been in a director's chair, but you know what I mean.

Awesome new trailer for Chinese Zodiac.

Looks like Jackie's pulled out all the stops for his 'last, big, action movie'

It's shaping up nicely, particularly in terms of spectacle. Little distracting that this isn't in Cantonese though.

Apparently early reviews aren't great, but I'm still excited.

Saw Chinese Zodiac at the BFI last night - and I have to say I thought it was shite to be honest but it was redeemed by the Q&A afterwards with Jackie and Jonathan Ross (and that song Jackie sung at the end ) although I'm not sure why every time he's been seen in public in London over the last few days, hes insisted on wearing that panama hat - is he suffering an Edge style hairline crisis? But if you MUST watch this, 10 for the Blu-ray doesn't seem too much to pay for the 'honour'
