    Bummer for AotG3. That strikes me as more appropriate for JC's #100.
    Jackie Chan's 100th movie to mark China's centennial
    Relaxnews
    Wednesday, 16 February 2011


    '1911' starring Jackie Chan is due out in October 2011.

    The upcoming historic epic film 1911 will mark Jackie Chan's hundredth film project. Chan stars in the film and co-directed it with Red Cliff cinematographer Zhang Li.

    The billing coincides with the centennial of the Wuchang Uprising, also the film's storyline, when Sun Yat-sen's forces overthrew the Qing Dynasty and founded of the Republic of China.

    The film's distributor Well Go plans to mark the occasion with a simultaneous release in China and the US in October 2011. Its president Doris Pfardrescher told The Hollywood Reporter, "Jackie Chan is an icon and it's just thrilling for us to be able to bring this film to his North American fans on the same day and date as Asia's theatrical release."

    Also known as Xinhai Revolution, the film also stars Zhao Wen Xuan, Li Bingbing, Joan Chen (The Last Emperor), Taiwanese actress Feng-Jiao Lin, and Jaycee Chan, son of Jackie Chan.

    Chan has appeared in actions and comedies The Karate Kid, Rush Hour, and Shanghai Knights, and has lent his voice for the Kung Fu Panda films. In 1911 he will play a dramatic role, portraying a military officer in battle but without his signature acrobatic martial arts.

    Originally, Chan's 100th film was expected to be Armor of God 3: Chinese Zodiac, but with Shaolin (2011) opening in Asia and Australia, Armor of God was pushed back to open in 2012. Shaolin stars Andy Lau and is directed by Benny Chang - it's a remake of the 1982 film Shaolin Temple with Jet Li.

    The THR source article

    Usually I post the original source first, but I was in a rush on last Friday. The original source is a little more informative.
    Day-and-Date Release Planned in U.S., China for Jackie Chan's '1911' (Berlin)
    1:54 PM 2/15/2011 by Borys Kit

    BERLIN -- Well Go USA has picked up the North American rights to Jackie Chan's latest film, the historical epic 1911.

    And in what may be a first for an Asian movie, Well Go aims to give the movie a day-and-date release in the U.S. and China. The company is primarily known for its home entertainment releases of mostly Asian fare, but has been slowly moving into the theatrical sphere, most recently opening Ip Man 2 in January.

    By having the day-and-date release, the company hopes to better tap into the Asian community market and capitalize on Chan's still-strong appeal.

    Billed as Chan's 100th movie, 1911 tells of the founding of the Republic of China when nationalist forces led by Sun Yat-sen overthrew the Qing Dynasty.

    Winston Chao plays Sun while Chan is a high-ranking officer in his army.

    "We are honored to be a part of 1911 on many levels, not only because of its historical significance but also because it's Jackie's 100th film," Well Go president Doris Pfardrescher said. "Jackie Chan is an icon and it's just thrilling for us to be able to bring this film to his North American fans on the same day and date as Asia's theatrical release."

    Chan co-directed the movie with Zhang Li and the movie is seen as Chan's latest effort to move into more dramatic spheres as he matures.

    Jackie and JJ Prods. and the Shanghai Film Group produced the movie.

    huang xing lost fingers in a fight. his nickname was 8 fingers general.

    he was the general or master mind of almost all of the uprising or military/revolution actions.

    later he departed with Dr. Sun.

    almost all the KMT cadres changed to support yuan shi kai, since he was in control of northern army and had support from japan and other western powers by agreeing to the unequal treaties and concessions in place.

    Dr. Sun was so disappointed and started to ask all KMT members had to swear loyalty to him and party, so it is not so democratic anymore. this also started the idea of asking russia to support and founding KMT revolution army academy/huang pu jun xiao--

    so general Huang resigned from KMT

    so the movies is about the events giving birth to the republic in 1911

    and so much complete bio for general huang, then

    on a side note

    general huang was a tall and stocky man.

    JC is kind of short and stubby.
