Jackie Chan's CZ12 (SUP YI SUN CHIU) Mainland box office passed 800 million yuan RMB to become China's highest grossing action film. The film was also a hit in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, the overseas box office champion among recent Chinese films. Next week its total box office will break 1 billion. CZ12 was released on December 20 in the Mainland, Hong Kong and Southeast Asia. As of January 13, it continued to reach high heights at the box office. Jackie Chan said, "If Chinese film wants to rival Hollywood film and be a hit around the world, they can only rely on real kung fu and real action. This is China's specialty."
Jackie Chan is currently in the Mainland to work on the Emperor new film NEW POLICE STORY 2013 with Liu Ye, who two nights ago posted online about prop theft and even said that director Ding Sheng and the team hid in the bushes to catch the thief at night but to no avail. The police has already promised to follow up.
