When you’ve been in the stunt/action movie game for as long as Jackie Chan has, you probably start to think that everything’s been done. And then one of your stunt guys suggests street luging in a fully articulated suit that’s covered in roller blades. The stunt sequence is only one action piece in Chan’s upcoming Chinese Zodiac, a film that he claims will be his last major action role in order to focus on other acting pursuits (he wants to become the “Asian Robert De Niro”). If that plan holds true, it’ll be a sad day for action fans, but what a way to go! Hit the jump to see Chan in action in the rollerblading suit in a new teaser for Chinese Zodiac, along with the film’s trailer.
Comic-Con has released the schedule for Preview Night on Wednesday, July 11th and the full schedule for Thursday, July 12th. Preview Night won’t just have people trampling each other for Exhibitors Floor merchandise. It will also have screenings of the pilots for Arrow, 666 Park Avenue, The Following, Revolution, and Cult. As for Thursday, Comic-Con has wisely scheduled The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 as the first panel of the day in Hall H (although it doesn’t start until almost 1:00pm for some reason), so all the Twihards can get in, see the panel, and get on with their lives. For the rest of the day, Hall H will play host to Frankenweenie, Oz the Great and Powerful, Wreck-It Ralph, Jackie Chan’s CZ12, The Expendables 2, and…not much else really. No offense to Chan, but his directorial feature CZ12 is going to be packed only because Expendables 2 is coming afterwards.
On the TV side, there will be panels for returning series Psych, Wilfred, Archer, Nikita, Dexter, and Workaholics. There will also be panels for new series Beauty and the Beast and Elementary. Hit the jump for highlights from the Wednesday and Thursday schedules. The 2012 San Diego Comic-Con runs from July 12 – 15th.
