On April 18, Jackie Chan and Jet Li will appear together in a movie for the first time as Lionsgate releases The Forbidden Kingdom. ComingSoon.net has an exclusive clip from the Rob Minkoff-directed film, which also stars Michael Angarano, Collin Chou, Crystal Liu Yi Fei and Li Bing Bing.
In the movie, American teenager Jason (Angarano) is obsessed with Hong Kong cinema and kungfu classics and finds an antique Chinese staff in a pawn shop: the legendary stick weapon of the Chinese sage and warrior, the Monkey King (Li). With the lost relic in hand, Jason unexpectedly finds himself transported back to ancient China.
There, he meets the drunken kungfu master, Lu Yan (Chan); an enigmatic and skillful Silent Monk (Li); and a vengeance-bent kungfu beauty, Golden Sparrow, who lead him on his quest to return the staff to its rightful owner, the Monkey King – imprisoned in stone by the evil Jade Warlord for five hundred years.
