Update: A new trailer has dropped for Jackie Chan’s newest action offering Vanguard. Check out all the fisticuffs and heavy weaponry below!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Just a few days after I posted a very awesome BTS video from Ip Man 4: The Finale, we now have a cool one for action and martial arts icon Jackie Chan’s newest offering titled Vanguard. We also have a great group shot of the cast with Jackie front and center which you can see in full below!
Vanguard stars Chan and deals with the covert security company Vanguard who is the last hope of survival for an accountant after he is targeted by the world’s deadliest mercenary organization.
Chan stars along with Chan is Yang Yang (The Lost Tomb) and Miya Muqi who also starred with Jackie in Kung Fu Yoga. Stanley Tong who helmed the classic Jackie Chan films Supercop, Rumble In The Bronx and First Strike reunites with Chan once again as director.
Watch the BTS video below which focuses on Yang Yang’s character below!
I had also shared a teaser poster and trailer for the film a while back so you can once again check out both below. The film doesn’t look like it’ll be a classic but it looks cool and the action set pieces look pretty stellar so we will see. Jackie, even in his 60’s, still packs a punch with his action movies so as long as he can still perform, he’s always welcome to make some killer flicks.
Vanguard is set to release in China soon and hopefully we get a North American release date as well!
