MOC Monday: Jackie Chan

I love Jackie Chan. I literally grew up with Jackie Chan movies. Drunken Master was, I think, the first Jackie Chan movie I saw as a child. Don’t even get me started on Jackie Chan Adventures.

I. LOVE. THIS DUDE.

So color me excited when I got this news in my inbox about Jackie Chan’s latest film, Dragon Blade, directed by Daniel Lee and also starring John Cusack and Adrien Brody, coming to theaters and On Demand Sept. 4.

Here’s what you can expect from the Lionsgate Premiere film.

A massive success this year in its native China, “Dragon Blade” brings action spectacle on a grand scale to US audiences. Featuring an international cast led by Jackie Chan, John Cusack and Academy Award-winner Adrien Brody, the film features the fight for the Silk Road when East and West collide. When corrupt Roman leader Tiberius (Adrien Brody) arrives with a giant army to claim the Silk Road, Huo An (Jackie Chan) and his group of trained warriors teams up with an elite legion of defected Roman soldiers led by General Lucius (John Cusack) to maintain the delicate balance of power in the region. To protect his country and his new friends, Huo An gathers the warriors of thirty-six ethnic nations together to fight Tiberius in an incredible epic battle.  The film is directed by Daniel Lee (“Black Mask”) and produced by Jackie Chan and Susanna Tsang.

Looking at the action happening in the above photo, Dragon Blade looks like it’s going to be a side of Chan we in America haven’t seen before.

One thought on “MOC Monday: Jackie Chan”

  1. I’ve been a Jackie Chan girl since I was a teenager. i think the first thing i saw him in was something called Young Tiger, but it was long ago so I’m not sure of that.

    I definitely loved Drunken Master and Supercop, though. I still do. This new one sounds pretty strange. Its an odd cast.
