Who’s afraid of “The Grandmasters”? Apparently not Jackie Chan. The acclaimed action star’s latest endeavor “Chinese Zodiac” — a film that’s rumored to be his final stunt-laden endeavor — will arrive in Chinese theaters on December 20th, 2012. As you may recall, director Wong Kar-wai’s upcoming martial arts epic “The Grandmasters” is hitting cinemas around the same time. December 18th, 2012 to be exact. I guess we should prepare for cinematic war.

Of course, there’s should to be room for everyone at the box office (I think), but it will be interesting to see who claims the top spot during that crucial first week. Both films are highly anticipated, so the ensuing showdown could get interesting. Honestly, I think I’m more anxious to see “Chinese Zodiac” than “The Grandmasters”, but that’s simply because I’m a Chanboy. And, apparently, I’m not afraid to admit it. Stop laughing.

Which film are you most excited to see? I’ll be curious to read the responses. In the meantime, feel free to check out the trailers for the aforementioned titans below.
