The iconic Jackie Chan reteams with his Rumble In The Bronx director Stanley Tong for the upcomign Kung Fu Yoga and what does the reunion bring? It brings a high speed car chase with a lion. Note that that's not a high speed car chase against a lion or in pursuit of a lion but actually with a lion. It's a CGI lion, sure, but what could make a car chase more fun than sticking a lion inside the car?
Chinese archeology professor Jack (Jackie Chan) teams up with beautiful Indian professor Ashmita and assistant Kyra to locate lost Magadha treasure. In a Tibetan ice cave, they find the remains of the royal army that had vanished together with the treasure, only to be ambushed by Randall (Sonu Sood), the descendent of a rebel army leader. When they free themselves, their next stop is Dubai where a diamond from the ice cave is to be auctioned. After a series of double-crosses and revelations about their past, Jack and his team travel to a mountain temple in India, using the diamond as a key to unlock the real treasure.
With its globe hopping story and obvious sense of fun the obvious point of comparison here are Chan's previous Armor Of God films, an approach that's sure to please fans. The scale is huge, the action pieces likewise, and Chan is back to the sort of goofy slapstick stunt work that built his international reputation. Check out the first trailer below!
