Jackie Chan: China's Top Celebrity
Forbes - SHANGHAI -- Hong Kong movie star Jackie Chan  heads our new list of top Chinese celebrities.

Chan beat basketball star Yao Ming, who had dominated the list for six consecutive years, Forbes China magazine reported in its latest issue. Chan reached the apex in part because of the strength of his acting and his income from concerts. Last year he became the first entertainer to perform in the Beijing Olympic Stadium since Olympics finished in 2008.

For the first time the latest celebrity ranking from Forbes China, the licensed Chinese-language edition of Forbes, was expanded to include celebrities that hail from Hong

Jackie Chan and Jet Li Talk About ‘Forbidden Kingdom’
Hollywood Today Newsmagazine - Los Angeles, CA, USA - “The first two takes were so fast that everybody had to tell us to slow down or they’d have to use slow motion,” says Jackie Chan.

‘The Forbidden Kingdom’ is the first time Jackie Chan and Jet Li have starred in the same movie. “First day, we’re on the set, there’s two stunt guys doing demonstration. We stand and look. I’m a fast learner. I’ve been doing stunts for years. I say, ‘Ok, let’s shoot without rehearsal’. I look at Jet Li. Jet Li say, ‘Ok, let’s shoot’. I want to show off quick.

In No 'Rush' for Six Years, Tucker Returns to Acting
Washington Post - United States - It's been six years since his last movie. Six years since he tossed on a police uniform, stood next to Jackie Chan and kick-boxed a few bad guys.

Six years that Chris Tucker has spent, he says, "enjoying my celebrity."

Which sounds like an awfully indulgent hiatus. And sure enough, when he was arrested two years ago for reckless driving in Georgia, he was behind the wheel of a shiny new Bentley Continental.

But that incident is an anomaly for the 34-year-old comedian. He says he was late for church the day he was pulled over. And when he talks about "enjoying his

Jackie Chan is running on fumes in uninspired 'Rush Hour 3'
Seattle Post Intelligencer - USA - After a six-year hiatus, the "Rush Hour" brand has lost its drive. The third film in the odd-couple action-comedy franchise features a once breathtakingly acrobatic action star now past his prime, a story that could have been sketched on the back of a cocktail napkin, a script that confuses exposition for dialogue, and recycled stunts that whiz by slickly and spiritlessly in a brisk 90 minutes.

The loopy energy of Chris Tucker, bouncing off straight-man Jackie Chan, is all that colors the spaces between the connect-the-dots plotting.

Chan's no-nonsense Hong Kong Chief Inspector Lee and Tucker's slippery, spring-loaded L.A. cop James Carter
