Jackie Chan karate kicks his way back on the big screen in The Foreigner!

The action movie has Chan playing a humble businessman with a buried past who seeks justice when his daughter is killed in an act of terrorism. Pierce Brosnan also stars, teaming up again with GoldenEye director Martin Campbell.

Here are 5 reasons why you need to check this movie out:

1. The Stunts

Jackie Chan has endured many years of long, hard work and a ton of injuries to establish international success via his early beginnings in Hong Kong's martial arts movie industry. Making his way to North American audiences in 1995 with Rumble in the Bronx, this was the first time we saw an action star do his own stunts as he ran up walls and bounced off cars. It was very impressive and Jackie hasn't slowed down. »

'The Foreigner' Review: Jackie Chan Goes the 'Taken' Route in Revenge Thriller

11 October 2017 11:58 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Legend is a much abused word in the movie business – but Jackie Chan really is a legend. The undisputed king of martial-arts movies kicked up a notch with slapstick and jaw-dropping stunts, the star is acrobatic poetry in motion. American audiences know him best from his three Rush Hour action comedies with Chris Tucker (No. 4 is on the drawing board), but true aficionados rightly point to Chan's death-defying Hong Kong cinema epics – see Drunken Master, Police Story and Armor of God – as pinnacles of the form.

Rush Hour 4 finally set to go ahead

8 October 2017 9:49 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Oct 9, 2017

Rush Hour 4 is an active project again, says Jackie Chan, with plans to film the next movie in 2018...

The Rush Hour trilogy of movies, starring Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, have proven hugely lucrative for all concerned over the past near two-decades. Not withstanding the fact that the quality of them diminished, there have still been plans to make a Rush Hour 4 for some time, although given that it’s now been ten years since the third film, most had given up hope of seeing it.

Now though, Jackie Chan - whilst promoting The Lego Ninjago Movie - has confirmed that there’s finally a screenplay pretty much in place for the new movie. What’s more, it looks like it’s moving forward.

“Good news. Next year, Rush Hour 4, and I hope the script done”, Chan said. “And day after tomorrow we meet »

Jackie Chan teases that Rush Hour 4 is moving forward

7 October 2017 1:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the long-rumoured fourth instalment in the Rush Hour series – in fact, we had an entire short-lived TV series in the meantime – but now thanks to Jackie Chan we now have an update.

“For the last seven years, we’ve been turning down the script, turning down the script,” said Chan on Power 106’s The Cruz Show (via Deadline). “Yesterday, we just agreed. The script probably at the end of this month will have a second draft, and next year, probably [we will] start. I hope — if Chris Tucker agrees.”

So, it seems that Chan is on board, and things would sound very promising indeed, save for his last comment. Presumably Tucker will have seen the first draft though, and has been impressed enough to give the go ahead for a second, so perhaps we’ll be seeing Detectives Lee and Carter »

7 October 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No problem… just “Rush Hour 4.” Ten years after the buddy-cop franchise directed by Brett Ratner became a trilogy featuring a bizarre Roman Polanski cameo, Jackie Chan says that a fourth installment is indeed in the works — but what happens next depends on Chris Tucker.

“For the last seven years, we’ve been turning down the script, turning down the script,” Chan said during an appearance on Los Angeles radio station Power 106’s “The Cruz Show.” “Yesterday, we just agreed.” All doesn’t appear to be finalized, however: “The script probably at the end of this month will have a second draft, and next year, probably [we will] start.

Jackie Chan might already be 63 years old but that won’t stop him from saving the world along with the 46-year old Chris Tucker.  Chan has recently confirmed that a fourth Rush Hour might soon be finally happening.

Now it sounds like Chris Tucker’s manic character might be reunited with Jackie Chan’s Hong Kong Detective Inspector Lee for a fourth adventure in the East-beats-West series.

"Good news. Next year, Rush Hour 4, and I hope the script done. And day after tomorrow we meet the director and Chris Tucker again to make sure we go the right track."

While Jackie Chan wouldn't mention the director by name, it's quite possible that he's referring to Rush Hour franchise director Brett Ratner, who directed all three movies thus far, and even revealed in »

Jackie Chan Confirms 'Rush Hour 4' Is Happening... With One Chris Tucker-Sized Caveat

5 October 2017 4:08 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jackie Chan is almost certain Rush Hour 4 is happening -- as long as Chris Tucker gives the final go-ahead!

The 63-year-old actor went on Power 106's The Cruz Show, where he excited fans of the buddy action-comedy franchise by announcing that a fourth installment should be on its way by next year.

"Rush Hour, you can do any time," the martial arts legend said, while discussing the challenges of possibly doing another Karate Kid, given how the characters have aged. And that's when he revealed the big news.

"[It's coming] next year," Chan shared. "For the last seven years we've been turning down the script, turning down the script. Yesterday, we just agreed."

A decade has passed since Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker last shared the screen together, but it appears fans are now finally closer than ever to a Rush Hour 4.  The veteran film actor shared the exciting news during an appearance on Power 106's The Cruz Show, where he confirmed years and years of rumblings that he'd given the green light on expanding the action-comedy franchise.  "For the last 20 years, I've tried different [characters,]" Chan shared.

Jackie Chan Vs. Pierce Brosnan in The Foreigner Trailer

13 September 2017 2:26 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Stx Entertainment has released a new trailer and photos from The Foreigner, the latest film from the ageless big screen icon Jackie Chan. This action-packed thrill ride is very much in the same vein as the action classic Taken, with Jackie Chan playing a father with a very "special set of skills" that he uses to go after a group of terrorists. This timely action thriller also stars Pierce Brosnan and comes from the director of Casino Royale.

The Foreigner tells the story of humble London businessman Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love -- his teenage daughter -- is taken from him in a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism. In his relentless search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Pierce Brosnan), whose own past may »

The Hitman’S Bodyguard – Review

17 August 2017 11:04 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Ah, it’s almost that quiet (well quieter) time at the old multiplex, as Summer mayhem winds down and the end-of-the-year award bait anxiously awaits. You know… what with Labor Day here in just a couple of weeks. But what’s that rumbling in the distance? Why, it’s another car-smashin’ action flick, charging in with guns ablazin’! Is it another comics-based thriller, or the exciting newest installment of a spy franchise? No, but it’s pretty familiar, as it’s another adrenalin-fueled fable concerning two really different guys, who’ve got to team up to start a huge threat. And, in the tradition of Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy in 48 Hours and Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in the Rush Hour trilogy (oops, maybe another’s on the way), these fellas, besides their personalities, are, well, of different ethnicities. Perhaps this film will start a dialogue and help this divided nation. »

Ryan Reynolds took it upon himself yesterday to reveal the first two images of Josh Brolin as Cable directly from the set of Deadpool 2 which is currently in production in Vancouver.

Taking to social media, Reynolds, in true Reynolds fashion, posted one of the images stating “We all have that one, grumpy, heavily armed Uncle from the future”.

As we can see from the images, Brolin has gone through an amazing, almost unrecognisable transformation to play Cable. After spending months in the gym working out, Brolin is looking ripped and extremely menacing for his role as Deadpool’s nemesis, he certainly gives Reynolds ever so slight six pack a run for his money.

Bryan Cranston’s post-“Breaking Bad” career has taken him from Lbj on Broadway and television (“All the Way”) to James Franco movies (“In Dubious Battle,” “Why Him?,” “The Disaster Artist”) to indie flicks (“The Infiltrator” and “Wakefield”).  However, he may have finally found the lead role that will land him his second Oscar nomination after “Trumbo.”

Word is, Cranston delivers in “Boyhood” writer-director Richard Linklater’s September 28 New York Film Festival opener, the road trip drama “Last Flag Flying” (November 3, Amazon). Adapted from the 2005 Darryl Ponicsan novel, Cranston plays one of three Vietnam Navy veterans who reunite to bury one of their sons, an Iraq soldier. Steve Carell and Laurence Fishburne costar.
