Jackie Chan’s stunt-filled family action adventure Chinese Zodiac comes to guests at AMC Theatres in the United States and Canada beginning Oct. 18.
Filmed on location across five continents and seven countries, the movie features some of Chan’s wildest stunts – including a hillside chase with the hero in a skate suit and an aerial landing on top of an active volcano.
During the making of the film, Chan broke two Guinness World Records for “Most Stunts Performed by a Living Actor” and “Most Credits in One Movie” (15), which includes Actor, Director, Producer, Fight Choreographer and Composer.[ Also Read: RMN Company Unveils Top Entertainment Stars ]

JC (Jackie Chan) leads a team of treasure hunters (Kwon Sang-Woo, Liao Fan and Zhang Lanxin) who travel the world in search of ancient relics.
When JC is given his toughest challenge yet, acquiring 12 mystical artifacts that comprise the animals of the Chinese Zodiac, he enlists the help of archeologist Coco (Yao Xintong) and French heiress Katherine (Laure Weissbecker).[ Also Read: Malayalam Actress Manju Warrier Goes Digital ]
