35mm presentation - Jackie Chan's 100th movie: Starring Jackie Chan and co-directed by the star and Zhang Li, 1911 tells the story of the founding of the Republic of China when Sun Yat-sens forces overthrew the Ming Dynasty. Sun is played by look-alike Chinese actor Zhao Wen Xuan. Li Bingbing, Joan Chen and Jaycee Chan also star. This is a dramatic movie, of which Jackie Chan hopes will show the United States his ability to act in a drama. Chan plays a high ranking military officer (seems as if he is a general). It is expected that no Kung-Fu will be used, although lots battles with the use of guns in a war type setting with weapons from the time period of 1911, what was accurately used in the Overthrowing of the Ming Dynasty by the hands of Sun Yat-sen's forces.
