Very good news from the Hollywood Reporter. They have mentioned Around the World in 80 Days as one of the most promising movies coming up this year. They say the movie "is a broad appeal family film and with its brand name title, "80 Days" looks like a likely winner."
On January 29, Jackie will receive another Honorary Professorship - this time from the Hong Kong Polytechnics Hotel and Travel Industry Management Academy. Traces of a Dragon will be shown to help earn money for the Polytechnic Development Fund and Student Development Fund. See? Even when Jackie is busy filming he manages to help people! Source
