The Forbidden Kingdom, Jackie Chan, ...

For the first time ever, Jet Li and Jackie Chan star alongside each other in a martial arts movie. So who’s this white kid getting in the way? He’s Jason (Snow Angels’ Michael Angarano), an American teen transported from a Chinatown pawnshop back into ancient China, where he has to help free somebody called the Monkey King. Chan, as a kung fu master, and Li, as Silent Monk, are around to lend a hand. A real-life kung fu master, Yuen Wo Ping (The Matrix; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), choreographs the action. (April 18)
