Jackie Chan's last action movie looks like the most fun he's been in years

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Chinese Zodiac is Jackie Chan's 100th movie, and it's one of his biggest — a single fight scene in this movie reportedly is costing more than $10 million to shoot. And it might be his final action movie, since he's said he wants to retire from doing action films. At the very least, it's reportedly his last big action movie.

And judging from the first trailer, it looks way more fun than most of his outings of the past decade. I like the whole "I can kick your ass without leaving this couch" scene. And Chan is returning to one of his constant preoccupations: the fate of Chinese historical artifacts that are in the hands of callous Westerners. Except that these items, a dozen heads of the Chinese zodiac, have mystical properties of some sort. In any case, it looks fun — which is what we've been craving from Jackie Chan for a long time now.

"Hello all my friends and fans,

Yesterday in my press conference in Cannes for Chinese 12 Zodiac I said that this movie was my last big action movie.

Today I was shocked when I woke up to read all the news coverage that I was retiring from doing Action movies.

I just want to let everyone know that I am not retiring from doing action movies. What I meant to say is that I need to do less of the life risking stunts on my movies. After all these years of doing so many stunts and breaking so many bones, I need to take better care of my body so I can keep working.

I will continue to do international action movies.

And I will keep improving my English :-)

I love all of you!

Jackie"
