Chinese Zodiac [十二生肖] (Dec 2012)

When talk about Chinese action movie, one of the actor that comes to our mind (especially those from the Asian Community) would be Jackie Chan. The action movie superstar from Hong Kong has produced, directed and acted on countless action movie classics (in both Hong Kong as well as Hollywood). 

This year, he is back with an even grander action movie entitled Chinese Zodiac (十二生肖). Accordingly to him, this movie is his brainchild and it took him 7 years to produce it. He is the writer, the director and the lead actor in this action packed movie which revolves around 12 mystic artifacts (bronze heads of the animals) from the Chinese zodiac (The character he played, Asian Hawk, is from his previous classic Operation Condor: Armour Of God [click on the image below for more details]).  

Chinese Zodiac will be released on 12.12.2012 (I personally believed that this date is specifically chosen because of the 12 mystic artifacts) in IMAX 3D (if I am not wrong, this will be the very first Chinese Movie to be released in IMAX 3D). Meanwhile, enjoy the glimpse of the movie's official trailers below (looks promising):

  1. This movie isn't a proper IMAX 3D film. It is simply going to be digitally remastered for digital IMAX theaters, which I like to call "lie-MAX" because they are nothing like real, authentic, IMAX theaters.

    Does anyone know if "Chinese Zodiac" was filmed in 3D? Because if it's not native 3D, the 3D is going to suck!

    The "Monkey King" on the other hand was filmed with IMAX 3D cameras. THAT is going to be one of the best martial arts films of all time, and that is totally worth going to a real IMAX theater for.
