Jackie Chan’s 1911 Will Go Day and Date in China and US, Courtesy of Well Go USA

Jackie Chan is a badass, which is why the guy now has 100 movies under his belt. 100 movies. Think about that for a second. Most actors are lucky enough to star in a dozen motion pictures during the span of their careers. Jackie Chan has found himself in 100. That’s an impressive feat, regardless of where your allegiance lies. The prolific actor’s upcoming endeavor, the Chinese historical epic “1911″, was recently acquired by the folks over at Well Go USA, who plan to release the film in the US on the same day it hits theaters in China. How impossibly cool is that?

This is a trend that I hope will continue well into the future. Problem is, will enough people here in the States see “1911″ in the cinema for other distributions to follow in Well Go USA’s footsteps? I, for one, certainly hope so. Here’s hoping that the film somehow reaches a theater within a reasonable driving distance from my front door. While you’re patiently waiting for the movie’s release date, be sure to check out the pic embedded below. It’s pretty darn snazzy, especially if you’re a fan of the Chan.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    That would be awesome. Then again I’m happy if it just realeases in theatres in the states period. And hey Well Go whatever happened to “Ip Man2″ and “Legend of the fist” being released in theatres stateside? Or is that still happening.
