1911 is Jackie Chan’s 100th Film; Day-and-Date Release Planned for USA and China in October 2011

     February 15, 2011


Jackie Chan is 57 years old.  Jackie Chan’s first credit was 1964′s Big and Little Wong Tin Bar.  Jackie Chan has filmed 100 movies.  Let that sink in… Actually, 1911 will be billed as Chan’s hundredth project to coincide with the centennial of the film’s subject matter: “the founding of the Republic of China when nationalist forces led by Sun Yat-sen (Winston Chao) overthrew the Qing Dynasty.”  IMDB has Chan at 109 acting credits, including a few uncredited appearances and his voice gig for Kung Fu Panda.  But still, nothing to sneeze at no matter the margin of error around 100.

In what THR suggests may be a first for an Asian film, international distributor Well Go USA plans to mark the occasion with a day-and-date release in China and the United States.  The posters (featured after the jump) suggest October 2011 — the Wuchang Uprising launched the revolution on October 10, 1911.  Chan co-directed 1911 with Red Cliff cinematographer Zhang Li.

    Jackie Chan rules! This movie looks awesome to, what happened in China at that time was very interesting and continues to affect the world-sphere to this day; I’m curious how the film will spin it without angering the Chinese government.

    For the record, this would most definitely NOT be the first time a U.S. distributor has gone day-and-date with a film. China Lion Entertainment did it with the sequel IF YOU ARE THE ONE 2 back on December 24th of last year and just did it with the Mandarin-language remake of WHAT WOMEN WANT on February 3rd. The Hollywood Reporter is in error (which is strange, as they were the ones who published news of both IYATO2 and WWW going day-and-date).

    I think many will be disappointed with this movie, not an usual Jackie Chan movie and Jackie is doing it just to please the Chinese government and try to grab some RMB in China’s Box office. Don’t be silly and waste money to watch a film like this… 100th film is just a gimmick to commemorate the communist party and it release date is the National Day for China. Anyone communist here? Please support, otherwise go get a DVD of Rush Hour or something… Jackie, please only do what you are good at, which is martial art action comedy film!

    I love the Chinese epic movies. I am not too concerned about the historical treatement as San Yut-sen was revered by both the Communists and the Nationalists. I wll be facinated to see how/if the film portrays the American educated Soong sisters. One of these sisters was San Yut-sen’s wife and went on to become president of the Peoples Republic of China. The youngest sister became the wife of San Yut-sen’s successor Chiang Kai-shek. The oldest sister married H.H. Fung who was the Nationalist Finance Minister and richest man in China. Some people may need to open their minds to this fascinating story and question some of the propaganda they have been fed for the last 50 years.

    Definitely going to be in interesting movie and probably useful too as a history lesson. The overthrow of the Ching was an important event as it dismantled the 5000-year monarchy system. The 1911 revolt sparked a tremendous outburst in intellectual and revolutionary activities that ultimately saw China breaking the chains of foreign aggression and occupation of its cities, provinces, land and rivers. New China emerged and became one of the world’s great powers: truly “the Chinese people have arisen!.”

    1911 – events happening around this time, very little is published to the Western world. A time of personal sacrify and ideal. Look forward to watching this movie. Hope it is more true to history than Hollywood twist.
