New Police Story: Best Jackie Chan Film in Years!

Beijing, Sept. 27 (Xinhuanet) -- Jackie Chan's latest screen action film 'New Police Story' has pocketed twenty million Yuan ($2,419,374 US) in its first three days.

It claims the No.2 box office this year, tightly followed Zhang Yimou's martial arts epic House of Daggers.

Critics say this it's Chan's best action film in recent years.

Over 400 copies of the film have sent to cinemas around China in anticipation of large audiences over the weeklong National Holiday.

New Police Story is #1 at Box Office!

SING TAO - Jackie Chan's new flick "New Police Story" is strong in the box office. Yesterday the film premiered in 5 countries: Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, raking in nearly HK $10 million. Hong Kong alone generated HK $1.5 million, making it first place in the whole country. Currently filming in Lanzhou, Jackie's heart skipped when he heard the great news. "I had a hunch already. This means spending several millions to launch premieres was worth it. According to numbers of Asia's box offices, I estimate we will make money after one week. Thinking about this makes me unable to sleep!"

Recently Jackie has been complaining to the press that Hollywood is not the place to be for Asian actors. They are often given predictable roles which don't allow any creative freedom. Jackie is happy to be back in Hong Kong where he can put his talents to good use. He is looking toward a future as an ACTOR and not an action star. Maybe when Hollywood sees what Jackie can do when he's given more freedom they will allow him to make the kinds of movies he wants to make.

New Police Story Premieres in Hong Kong

Jackie is thrilled with the response to his high-budget Hong Kong picture "New Police Story." Critics are calling it a hit and many are comparing this film to some of Jackie's classics. New Police Story adds more drama than his older movies, and the combination appears to be a winner. Here are some photos from the Hong Kong premiere yesterday:

New Police Story Getting GREAT Reviews!

So far the buzz has been totally positive about Jackie's latest Hong Kong movie, New Police Story. Click here to read a great review from The Straits Times Asia. Congratulations to Jackie and the cast and crew of New Police Story.

Let's Get the Story Straight, Okay?

Some very irresponsible "journalists" have recently misquoted Jackie with regard to comments he made about his son Jaycee's recently released music CD. They have accused Jackie of making some very unkind statements about Jaycee's music. Please keep in mind that through the combination of poor translations and the unprofessional behavior of some journalists, Jackie has been wronged. These stories have taken Jackie's words and twisted them to try to create a scandal where none exists. To get the REAL Jackie news, stick to the official website.


Kids Corner Computer Has Finally Arrived!

Yes, it's been a tough couple of weeks, but all is in order now. The website's server is fresh and new (and FAST!) and the Kids Corner webmaster has a brand new Dell computer to help her bring you the best of Jackie Chan. Right now, there is a backlog of work for the webmaster. There are postcards and t-shirt designs and drawings that all needed to be added. This will be done ASAP - most likely over the weekend. Thanks for your patience. Really.

Why is the Kids Corner Webmaster So Sad?

Well, it was only two weeks ago that the Kids Corner server (that's the thing that brings the Kids Corner website to the Internet) was upgraded and the Kids Corner was down for nearly a week. NOW the Kids Corner webmaster's computer has gone to computer Heaven. Don't worry, a new computer is on its way and should arrive soon. Please be patient. All of the new postcards, drawings, and t-shirt designs have been safely stored away on a laptop and will appear here VERY SOON! There are some beautiful things that have arrived via regular mail and email. Thank you for all your patience. The Kids Corner will be up and running better than ever as soon as all this computer stuff is taken care of. In the meantime......

Jackie to Star in Television Show!?

This from Xinhuanet:

BEIJING, Sept.14 (Xinhuanet) -- Renowned Chinese action star Jackie Chan will co-star in the TV series "Silver Times" alongside other big shots from the Chinese mainland, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

The youth drama is set at the Beijing Film Academy, and tells interesting stories about the college's Acting Department. China Radio International reported Tuesday.

Film stars and directors that graduated from the university are also expected to be included in the lineup, such as Zhao Wei, known as "Little Swallow" for her role in "Pearl Princess," actress and director Xu Jinglei, and popular filmmaker Feng Xiaogang.

The twenty-something South Korean singer Jang Na will portray the show's heroine.

The Kids Corner is Back !!!!!

It has been a long five days since the Kids Corner server suddenly went KAPUT! and knocked offline. In case you don't know, the SERVER is the thing that sends the website out to the Internet. The Kids Corner does not use the same server as and that is why it was just this site that wasn't functioning. Hopefully this will never happen again, especially for such a long period of time! If you ever come to the Kids Corner and get an error message, don't worry. Sometimes technical difficulties come up with no warning. The Kids Corner is HERE TO STAY! Thanks to everyone who sent emails to the webmaster expressing concern (or alarm). All is well.

In the last few days, the Kids Corner has received lots of baby photos, Buddy Bears, and "I Want to Be A Jackie's Kid" applications. Thanks to everyone who has sent these things in.

It will take a few days for the Kids Corner to catch up to what has been going on with Jackie. So have a little patience and the Kids Corner will deliver all the fun stuff you're used to seeing here! Don't forget about the t-shirt contest (see below).

Buddy Bear Book is Winging Its Way to Hong Kong

The Buddy Bear Second Edition book is on its way to Jackie! Since the crew is filming in a remote China countryside, Willie decided it would be safer to send the book to Hong Kong and then have one of the staff bring it to Jackie when they travel to the movie location. So have patience - eventually Jackie will see the book. Stay tuned for news about the Buddy Bear book.

**Note from Kids Corner Webmaster**

Hi All!

Very rarely do I put personal notes up here on the Jackie Kids Corner, but I just had to do so now. I want you all to know that the Second Edition Buddy Bear book is really special. It is a large, high-quality scrapbook with a red linen cover. It contains 116 Buddy Bear designs from Jackie's fans all over the world. There are bears from England, Scotland, Singapore, Germany, South Africa, Poland, the USA, and other countries. It's amazing! Each buddy bear was carefully cut out and mounted on a page (two to a page) and the artist's name, the title of the bear, and the country where the artist lives was printed right below the bear (thanks to Lisa S. for suggesting that the country name be included). Each page was adorned with beautiful cancelled postage stamps from all over the world. These stamps came from mail which was sent to the Kids Club/Kids Corner over the past 2 years.

The result was GORGEOUS! I can't stress enough how beautiful the book looked with its unique and creative designs on each page. Of all the projects I've sent to Jackie, this one I am most proud of. And that's because of YOU! Your respect for the message of the Buddy Bears and your love for Jackie came through in each design. You should all be proud of yourselves. You've helped create a unique and meaningful gift which will certainly put a smile on the face of the man who has given us all so many smiles. Thank you for that.

Jackie Films at Terracotta Warrior Museum

From Monkey Peaches:

"Yesterday Jackie Chan and Leung Ka-Fai arrived at Xi'an's The First Emperor's Terra-Cotta Soldiers and Horses Museum to shoot a few scenes for The Myth. According to Hong Kong paper Sing Pao Daily, they played two archeologists, who were arguing about something inside pit 1 of the museum. The museum was built on a series of pits, where thousands of terra-cotta figures have been unearthed and thousands more are still waiting for excavation. The burial pits are part of the China's First Emperor's mausoleum. The filming only lasted for less than a day and it involved no actions. Jackie Chan has finished the shooting in Shanghai and Wuxi. His next destination is Gansu Province and then he will go to India."
