1911 movie scene

Jackie Chan gets involving in the founding of the Republic of China in 1911.

Legendary action star Jackie Chan (The Spy Next Door) marks the milestone of his 100th film with the epic historical action-adventure movie 1911.

Starring, co-directed and produced by Chan, the film details a key moment in modern Chinese history—when nationalist forces led by Sun Yat-sen overthrew the Qing Dynasty and the Republic of China was founded.

Along with Jackie Chan, the film stars Li Bing Bing (Triple Tap), Winston Chao (Eat Drink Man Woman), Joan Chen (The Last Emperor) and Jaycee Chan (Break-Up Club).

The R-rated Chinese production had a reported $30 million budget and it sure looks like the dollars are up on the screen, from the sloping walls of the Forbidden City to the expansive battlefields of the plains of China.

The film began a limited run in U.S. theaters in October, 2011, following its September premiere in China, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Presented in Cantonese with English subtitles, the Blu-ray and DVD Collector’s Editions include the following bonus materials:

  • On set interviews with Jackie Chan and Li Bing Bing
  • Making-of Featurette
  • Deleted Scenes
  • TV Spots and Trailers
  • Behind-the-Scenes Footage

Here’s an impressive-looking trailer to chew on:
