Focusing on Tucker’s Detective James Carter and Chan’s Chief Inspector Lee as they meet from two different sides of the world, 1998’s Rush Hour became a surprise hit. Earning an impressive $244.4 million at the worldwide box office against a budget of just $33 million, it brought the boys back for two more installments and a big question mark hanging over a fourth movie.
The 25-year-old rapper hit the NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles on Sunday night, where TNT cameras caught her munching on popcorn as her hit “Bartier Cardi” played in the Staples Center. Cardi B wasn’t shy about doing a little dance in her courtside seat to the tune, bobbing her head and moving her hand as a fellow spectator sitting beside her realized the excellence of what was happening.

Despite the action on the court, Sunday — Team LeBron James bested Team Stephen Curry with a score of 148-145 — the star-studded front row was quite the distraction. The mother-daughter duo was joined by Beyoncé’s own mom, Tina Knowles Lawson, who sat next to her husband, Richard Lawson.
Both the 36-year-old singer and her 6-year-old daughter sported sunglasses, with Blue rocking round sunnies while Beyoncé went for a
Jackie Chan karate kicks his way back onscreen 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.

Christopher Tucker, of Albany Township in Pennsylvania, has been charged with murder and criminal homicide for allegedly killing Tara Serino, 19, on Halloween night.
Authorities describe the two as friends, according to court documents obtained by People — but police believe that didn’t stop Tucker from popping the question last month inside his home.
When Serino declined, Tucker allegedly lost it, grabbing the young woman by the
Munn claims that while visiting the set of the 2004 Ratner-directed film After the Sunset, he masturbated in front of her, while Henstridge told the paper that when she was 19, she was forced to perform oral sex on Ratner in his New York apartment after watching a movie with a group of friends.
In the Times article, published Wednesday, a total of six women spoke out against the longtime Hollywood power player,
Rush Hour 4 is an active project, it seems...
Since we last heard anything about Rush Hour 4, namely the story you can find below, the director of the three films to date, Brett Ratner, has faced accusations of sexual misconduct. As such, it looks as if he's backed away from a bunch of movie projects (he was in line to direct the Hugh Heffner biopic).
Rush Hour 4, however, is still very much pressing ahead. Jackie Chan had said as much last autumn, and now Chris Tucker, his co-star, has confirmed this too. "It’s happening. This is gonna be the rush of all rushes. Jackie is ready and we want to do this so that people don’t ever forget it", he told ESPN'S The Plug podcast.
We don't have firm production dates, or anything of that ilk. But there is a clear intent
“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

“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. I hope — if Chris Tucker agrees.”

Rush Hour 4 is Finally Happening
During a recent radio interview on L.A.'s Power 106 (via Deadline), Chan said:
“For the last seven years, we’ve been turning down the script, turning down the script. Yesterday, we just agreed.”
All three films were directed by Brett Ratner, but there's no word on if he'll be back for the fourth one. I assume that if it happens, he will direct it. I'm not the biggest fan of Ratner's work, but the Rush Hour franchise is probably his best work. He is set to direct the Hugh Hefner biopic with Jared Leto next. Chan went on to say that Chris Tucker
