A new teaser trailer has been released for Jackie Chan‘s newest film Chinese Zodiac. He showed up at Comic-Con this year to promote it, and it wasn’t really a very impressive presentation. Chan used to be the shit! His earlier films were so badass, but it seems like he hasn’t made a decent movie in years! But this movie might just change that.
The teaser that’s been released is actually pretty awesome! It features a full minute of Chan barreling down a road, under trucks, and through windows in a rollerblade suit. It’s extremely fast-paced and it looks like a ton of fun. Just like old times, Chan does all of his own stunts in the movie, and he’s said that this one will be his last big high octane, high-risk physical performance. He’ll still make movies! Just not as physically crazy as we’ve seen him do in the past. Here’s what he said,
I’ve been fighting and doing action films all my life, you’ve got to find a point to stop. With this movie I’m the director, I’m the writer, I’m the producer. So okay, I think it’s a good time to announce that it’s my last big action movie. I would still do action movies but not a big one like this.
The story follows the adventures of a renowned thief/treasure hunter who’s searching for a set of ancient Chinese sculptures crafted in the likeness of the zodiac animals. Watch the teaser below and let us know if it sells you on wanting to see Chan’s next action movie!
