Martial-arts superstar Jackie Chan is a little busy right now. He's doing all he can to promote his latest action film "Chinese Zodiac".
Taking a break from updating his weibo accounts, he showed up in Shanghai to meet his fans in person. There he was presented with two official Guinness World Records certificates for his career achievements as well.
Jackie Chan always lives the moment. He wrote, directed, produced, and starred in his latest film, "Chinese Zodiac", which is set to premiere in cinemas in China on December 20th.
When promoting the film in Shanghai, Jackie Chan received two certificates from the Guinness World Records for "Most Stunts by a Living Actor" and "Most Credits in One Movie".
Chan said, "The second prize is an affirmation to my past 50 years. Especially the recent few years, which have been emotional and hard work. But I have no regrets.”
Actually, when I made this film, I never thought about winning a Guinness Record. I never thought about it. I did fifteen different roles. In fact, you could say more than fifteen roles. I also joined in dubbing and putting effects."
Earlier this year Chan announced that "Zodiac" will be his last major action flick, and his best film in 10 years, heightening anticipation for the film’s release.
Chan said, "It’s really difficult to gauge the audience’s taste now. But now I only want to make films that I’m in favour of watching or making myself. Because I already made films for the audience for so many years, it’s time to make a film for myself now. I have no idea whether audiences will like this film, but I believe it will bring a lot of entertainment to them."
In the film, Chan is a treasure hunter seeking to repatriate sculpture heads of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac, which were taken from Beijing’s Summer Palace by French and British forces during the Opium Wars. Chan’s son, Fang Zuming, wrote music for the movie.
