Jackie Chan Unveils “Police Story 2013” at Beijing Film Festival

The 2013 Beijing International Film Festival held its closing award ceremony yesterday. Among those in attendance were Jackie Chan (成龍) and members from the cast and crew of his new movie, Police Story 2013 <警察故事2013>, which held its first public screening at the film festival.

Since Police Story 2013 began filming, it has attracted much attention from domestic and international media, thanks to its link with the previous five movies in the popular Police Story franchise. After the release of the first Police Story film in 1985, the franchise has gone on to release four sequels and garner numerous awards and nominations. Police Story 2013 will be the sixth installment.

However, according to Ding Sheng (丁晟), the movie director, Police Story 2013 will be “a continuation of the classic Police Story brand only in name.” Ding, who helmed the 2008 film The Underdog Knight <硬漢> and its sequel, shared that Police Story 2013 has a brand new story and breaks away from the traditional “cop movie” genre. “It integrates many styles,” he said, “from cop, action, suspense, to crime.”

Police Story 2013 will star Jackie, mainland Chinese actor Liu Ye (劉燁), and mainland Chinese actress Jing Tian (景甜). When asked how they felt about working with Jackie for the first time, both Liu Ye and Jing Tian used the words “excited” and “honored” to describe their mood. They also shared that they learned a lot from Jackie, whom they refer to by his nickname, “Big Brother”.

Although Police Story 2013 is a continuation of a series, Jackie feels it is a “brand-new attempt” for him, since he tries to pursue a different challenge with every new film that he works on. “I had a lot of ‘first times’ in this movie,” Jackie said, “and I’m looking forward to it very much.” The movie, which is currently in post-production, is expected to open in theaters this year.

At the film festival, Jackie and the other cast members were dressed in black, with a green ribbon affixed to their clothing, to express their mourning for the victims of the Sichuan Ya’an earthquake. Jackie expressed his heartfelt sympathies, “Disasters allow our hearts to become even closer. I hope that the people in the disaster area know that we will always be together, and that the love of 1.3 billion people will always be together.”

    1. Well actually, I was just saying that comments here were harsh as I’m not even a big Jackie fan. All this were mere based on your response to my post as I got the impression that you were a hater. It’s not my fault that you got my attention anyway.

      You may find me entertaining from your end but your style of writing and spelling is far more entertaining. Trust me, you have no idea lol.
