Jackie Chan tries to hijack a train in a new U.S. trailer for the Chinese period action film "Railroad Tigers."
Here, the 62-year-old action icon plays a 1941 railroad worker who leads a team of freedom fighters as they attempt to steal the food supply from the Japanese army. With nearly all the action taking place on a moving train, this is certainly a Jackie Chan movie that will get your heart running in high gear.
Co-starring Wang Kai, Darren Wang, Xu Fan, and Huang Zitao, "Railroad Tigers" is directed by Chinese action helmer Ding Sheng, who previously worked with Chan on "Police Story: Lockdown" and "Little Big Soldier."
"Railroad Tigers" is opening in the select U.S. cities this Friday, January 6th.
In this action-comedy caper harkening back to Jackie Chan's classic Hong Kong films, a railroad worker (Chan) and his ragtag group of freedom fighters find themselves on the wrong side of the tracks when they decide to ambush a heavily armed military train filled with desperately needed provisions. Unarmed and outnumbered, they must fight back against an entire army using only their wits, in a series of a dazzling set pieces and action scenes rivaling anything seen on the big screen.
directed by Ding Sheng
