Forbidden Kingdom

It seems that age has had no ill effect on the success of THE FORBIDDEN KINGDOM stars Jackie Chan and Jet Li. Their $70 million film beat expectations and the competition in its opening weekend, earning $20.9 million according to studio estimates. This is the biggest opening ever for a martial arts movie in the U.S.

This is the biggest opening for a Jackie Chan film outside of his RUSH HOUR series and the biggest for Jet Li since LETHAL WEAPON 4. Jet Li’s FEARLESS was the last major martial arts movie released and it grossed $10.6 million in its opening weekend.

FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL, a rated-R romantic comedy from SUPERBAD producer Judd Apatow came in a close second with $17.3 million.

    Hi, I fell lucky that I located this post while browsing for rush hour 3 movie. I am with you on the topic of en Kingdom dominates opening weekend- Jackie Chan and Jet Li | Pinewood Design. Ironically, I was just putting a lot of thought into this last Sunday.

    Great movie. It is really amazing how much action both Jackie Chan and Jet Li can give to their movies. I just saw Jet Li in Tai Chi Master last night. Pure action. Jet Li in Fearless is definately in the top ten martial arts movies. I think Bruce Lee would appreciate what these guys have brought to film.
