Forbes released its annual highest-paid actors list for 2017 and there are quite a few newcomers on the list. Overall, the list proves that if you star in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’re set for a while. Ruffalo got a nice payday from his role in the MCU.
Jackie Chan’s most serious injury, a skull fracture on the set of the 1986 action-comedy "Armour of God" that nearly killed him, came after a little drinking and stunting.
Jackie Chan was sick and tired of trying to cross over into American movies. The martial arts wonder and ex-Bruce Lee stuntman was a superstar in his native China, but his attempts at going Hollywood in films like Big Brawl (1980), The Cannonball Run (1981), and The Protector (1985) barely registered with stateside audiences. “Nobody knew who this little Chinese guy was that spoke no English,” Chan told Yahoo Entertainment during a recent Role Recall interview (watch clip above).
Bruce Lee recognized his stuntman Jackie Chan on the street, then followed him to a bowling alley.
"In Hollywood, I always receive the [same type of] script: Police from Hong Kong, police from China, CIA from Hong Kong," Jackie Chan says.
A new thriller featuring Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan reunited two veterans of the James Bond films. Brosnan talked to Yahoo Entertainment about his friendship with director Campbell, the future of the Bond series, and more.
It seems Jackie Chan is getting tired of waiting for his friend Chris Tucker to sign on to “Rush Hour 4.” “He seems retired,” Chan said of his co-star.
Martin Campbell-helmed actioner "The Foreigner" arrives Oct. 13 stateside and in China on Sept. 30.
Ahead of the release of The Lego Batman Movie, Warner Animation Group debuted the first trailer for The Lego Ninjago Movie. It features the voices of Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, and Jackie Chan. Dan Lin, who has produced every Lego film, told Yahoo Movies why people should be excited for Ninjago.
The Jackie Chan Stunt Team was originally formed more than 40 years ago. A group of stuntmen and martial artists who have appeared in films alongside Chan, the team has updated itself with younger members over the years. Chan hadn’t been with the original 1977 team in some time, but that changed when team members surprised him at a tribute on Chinese television, which was subsequently shared on Facebook.
Jackie Chan hasn’t had a blockbuster hit in the U.S. in years, but he’s still one of global cinema’s biggest stars. Last year, Forbes ranked him as the second highest-paid actor in the world (behind only Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson). Chan’s Chinese works continue to rake in cash, and one of his latest efforts, Kung Fu Yoga, is now headed for an American debut — and Yahoo Movies has an exclusive clip (watch it above) from the action comedy. In Kung Fu Yoga, Chan plays an archaeology professor who teams up with his younger assistant (Amyra Dastur) to find a lost Indian treasure located somewhere in Tibet.
"If we make a film that earns [$1.5 billion], then people from all over the world who study film will learn Chinese instead of us learning English," the action star said during the Shanghai Film Festival.
The show, based off the super successful movie franchise, is about an edgy Los Angeles detective named James Carter who teams up with a Chinese detective named Lee. If you like a lot of action, the pilot episode would’ve been pretty entertaining. Tell us what you think! Hit us up on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or leave your comments below.
