Jackie Chan is Still King of the Box Office


The Chinese box office continues to grow with the rather excellent news that Jackie Chan’s new film “Dragon Blade,” which stars John Cusack and Academy Award winner Adrien Brody as Roman soldiers lost in China, made $56 million in four-days last weekend.

It’s great to see an action movie starring Chan still blowing up at the box office, proving that he’s still got what it takes to put bums on seats.

“Dragon Blade” had a budget of $65 million which it will make back in a matter of days.

The movie hasn’t even been released in North America yet but I can sadly predict that it will probably end up going straight to DVD, which is a damn shame.

Either way, great for Jackie Chan and the Chinese for keeping action alive!

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
