1911 / Xinhai geming Trailer. Jackie Chan, Li Zhang‘s 1911 / Xinhai geming (2011) movie trailer stars Jackie Chan, Winston Chao, Jaycee Chan, Li Bing Bing, and Joan Chen. 1911 / Xinhai geming‘s plot synopsis: “ set in the beginning of the 20th century China, the country is split into warring factions, the citizens are starving, and recent political reforms have made matters worse, not better. The ruling Qing Dynasty, led by a seven-year-old emperor, is completely out of touch after 250 years of unquestioned power. With ordinary citizens beginning to revolt openly, the Qing Dynasty has created a powerful, modern army (the “New Army”) to quash any rebellion. But weapons are expensive, and desperate for cash, the Qing leaders are trading anything they can get their hands on with foreign countries… and selling China’s future in the process.”
It is actually refreshing to see Chan in a different type of character role than that of some Hollywood featured, stylized, and comedic martial artist. It seems that his transformation into a more intense, more dramatic role is befitting. In the trailer below, we get a glimpse of that role, along with some intense action sequences. 1911 will be Jackie Chan’s 100th film project that will coincide with the film’s centennial subject matter: the founding of the Republic of China.
