Jackie Chan (成龍) and the cast of the Hong Kong-Chinese film Police Story 2013 <警察故事2013> celebrated their box office success with a victory banquet held in Beijing on January 7. The sixth installment to Jackie Chan’s Police Story franchise, which started off with Jackie’s self-directed Police Story in 1985, already became a box office hit upon its release in mainland China on December 24, 2013.

Police Story 2013, a stand-alone installment like Jackie’s New Police Story <新警察故事> in 2004, opened to 64 million RMB on its first day, breaking the records set by 2010’s Wind Blast <西风烈> for the highest-grossing crime film on opening day.  By the end of its second week, the film grossed 442 million RMB, making it one of the highest-grossing films of the year. Police Story 2013 is also playing in over ten other countries, adding several million more to its overall gross.

Producing two new installments each decade, fans have followed the Police Story series for nearly thirty years. Jackie announced that he plans to produce more sequels, saying, “Maybe a Police Story 2016 or Police Story 2017. Maybe even a Police Story 2020. By then I’ll be sitting in an office and have Jaycee Chan (房祖名) and the rest to report to me,” he joked, referring that he would be too old to portray an action-packed cop role like in earlier films.

Director Ding Shen (丁晟) then added, “Da ge can still fight! No problem at all. In the sequel I will have him fight more.”

Police Story 2013 stars Jackie as an Interpol cop based in mainland China who is investigating a kidnapping case. Jing Tian (景甜) stars as his rebellious daughter, and Liu Ye (刘烨) stars as the kidnapper, who hopes to use his hostages as bait to release an incarnated ally.

Jackie praised his costars and joked that he would like to portray lovers with Jing Tian in the sequel. Liu Ye, on the other hand, said helplessly, “If I get to film [the sequel], I hope to portray a good person this time.”

    Boring! The last few police story films have been bad. He should really stop ruining what was once a good ‘franchise’…

    How old is he now? Is he going to use stunt double? I stopped watching his movies after he had the affair, lied and didn’t acknowledge the child.

    He should just retire. All of his movies in the last 15 years suck.

    Next Year- “Police Story, Retirement Village”,
    year after “Police Story, Infirmary”
    then “Police Story Hospital Morgue”

    Seriously, the fact that the movies are still hits shows
    A) how low standards have become these days
    B) that the industry is out of original ideas
    C) people are stupid enough to still pay for this kind of trash

    I completely agree with Puff. He is just ruining the Police Story legacy. Maggie Cheung and Michelle Yeoh must surely be cringing that they are still churning them out

    Yea yea yea. The last time Jackie Chan was promoting his CZ12 movie, he claimed that would be his last big time action movie and that he will “retire” from doing these action stunts and fight scenes.

    JC backed out from his own comments and filmed Police Story 2013 instead. And now, he says he plans on making more Police Story movies… I don’t know what to believe anymore. Its a bloody joke
