    Obama, Hu toast 'strategic mutual trust' at state dinnerBy Christina Wilkie - 01/19/11 10:30 PM ET President Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao toasted U.S. and Chinese collaboration and mutual interests on Wednesday night at a festive state dinner for 225 guests at the White House. Their toasts marked the high point of an evening notable for its strict adherence to the protocol and symbolism valued in Chinese culture, but which, at the same time, managed to fulfill the Chinese delegation's request for a thoroughly American dinner party. Guests dined on a meal of pear salad, lobster, ribeye steak and...

    QINGDAO, China – China's Wanda Group has unwrapped an $8.2 billion film investment plan to transform the country's movie industry into the world's biggest within five years, and group chairman Wang Jianlin said the company, which bought the AMC theater chain last year, is just starting to expand globally. Hollywood A-listers turned out in force in searing sunshine in Qingdao, northeastern China, with Leonardo DiCaprio, Nicole Kidman and Harvey Weinstein there to show moral support for the Qingdao Oriental Movie Metropolis complex, which is slated to open in 2017 in the eastern Chinese port city. The facility will include a...

    Action star Jackie Chan has once again sparked controversy by branding America the world's "most corrupt" country in a TV interview. His comments were slammed by The Washington Post's foreign affairs blogger Max Fisher as "anti-American" and a reflection of China's insecurity about itself. Chan told Phoenix TV that China has been bullied by international powers for a long time and only began making progress in recent years. Chan added that while China has a corruption problem, so do other nations, including America. "If you talk about corruption, the entire world - America - has no corruption?" said the actor....

    Americans know Jackie Chan best for his cheery, acrobatic performances in action movies such as “Rumble in the Bronx” and “Rush Hour,” made successful by his amazing martial artistry and self-effacing comedy. Chinese know Chan, a Hong Kong native, for largely the same reasons. But they also know him for something most Americans might find surprising: He is passionately political, a staunch defender of the Chinese Communist Party and harsh critic of anyone he sees as opposing Beijing. Today, that includes the United States. Chan, responding to widespread criticism of China’s recent censorship of a popular newspaper, insisted in a...

    Hong Kong action hero Jackie Chan has once again provoked criticism, this time from an American blogger, after suggesting on Chinese television that the US is the "most corrupt" country in the world. "When you talk about corruption -- the whole world, is there corruption in the United States? The most corrupt in the world!" the Rush Hour star, who has made headlines recently for his controversial views, told Phoenix TV last month. Chan reaffirmed his view after the show's host questioned him -- "Of course! Where did the great breakdown come from? The world, the United States started it,"...

It helped that Jackie Chan was on one end of the call. “When I picked up the phone and called my friends in the entertainment business in Japan, South Korea, Indonesia and Singapore, right away, they all agreed to come over,” Chan said.

    When I had a chance, I took a look at some of the beautiful rooms in the White House; I was so excited just to be there. When I looked around, I could feel all the history of the place and I felt like I was having flashbacks into history just by being in these rooms. It was thrilling! When I met President Obama, he shook my hand and told me that he was a big fan of mine. Wow! This made me feel so humbled and honored. I was practically speechless and just mumbled to him that it was...

    Summary : It has kick from Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan, but its running time may test its target audience's patience. "The Karate Kid" is a kung fu kick of film that hits more than it misses, with its fresh prince of Beijing in Jaden Smith, its scene-stealing grand master flash, Jackie Chan, and a shiny-happy China travelogue thrown in for good measure, or tax incentives, one of the two. The grit and the grime of the 1984 original are gone, swept under some Oriental rug no doubt in the spit-shine director Harald Zwart has given every nook and cranny...

    BOAO, China (AP) - Action star Jackie Chan said Saturday he's not sure if a free society is a good thing for China and that he's starting to think "we Chinese need to be controlled." Chan's comments drew applause from a predominantly Chinese audience of business leaders in China's southern island province of Hainan. The 55-year-old Hong Kong actor was participating in a panel at the annual Boao Forum when he was asked to discuss censorship and restrictions on filmmakers in China. He expanded his comments to include society.

    Proving the old adage that instead of sitting quietly letting everyone think you are an idiot one should speak up and prove it, funnyman John Cleese and Kung Fu action star Jackie Chan recently did some talking that they should probably have avoided. Apparently unaware that they've left office, Cleese unloaded on George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and seemed to say U.S. Marines weren't very sophisticated at a recent visit to Cornell University. For his part, Jackie Chan announced to the world that Chinese people "needed controlling" because all that darn democracy is just too "chaotic" for them. One...

Chan, best-known for his martial-arts comedies, told an annual meeting of governments and business leaders on Saturday that China should be wary of allowing too many freedoms.

"Chinese society needs a democratic system to protect human rights and rule of law." "His comments are racist. People around the world are running their own countries. Why can't Chinese do the same?" another Hong Kong lawmaker, Albert Ho, told the AP. "He himself has enjoyed freedom and democracy and has reaped the economic benefits of capitalism. But he has yet to grasp the true meaning of freedom and democracy," Taiwanese legislator Huang Wei-che said.

    Apparently, the No. 1 mid-August movie hit in the U.S. is not going to make it to the big screen in China. The communist Chinese government has tagged Jackie Chan's "Rush Hour 3" with a "fundamentally anti-Chinese" label and banned the big box-office hit. Chinese officials claim to be upset with a family that is depicted in the film as having links to organized crime. It could be the real reason the Chi-coms are peeved is the fact that Chan is living proof that dreams really do come true — in a free market, that is. The action movie comic...

    NEW DELHI (AP) -- Action star Jackie Chan has a message for Asia's film industry: Unite against American movies or risk losing your culture. Chan has starred in a string of Hollywood blockbusters, including "Rush Hour" and its sequel, and plans to start shooting "Rush Hour 3" soon. But he told The Times of India that that such movies erode the culture of Asian countries, saying "Asians should unite against American cinema." "Why do we need to ape their culture," Chan reportedly said. "I see an Indian saying 'Yo Man!' but that's not what Asian are about." India, like Hong...

    It's no "Terminator 4," but Arnold Schwarzenegger is about to come back to the screen -- the small screen, that is, in front of the world's biggest audience. The governor will co-star with fellow action hero Jackie Chan in a new buddy flick -- or more precisely, a buddy promo -- that's about to premiere on Chinese TV. The 30-second public service announcement, which was shot before the Governator left on his 12-day trade mission to China, is for a cause near and dear to the onetime star's heart -- stopping film and music piracy. The spot doesn't stop there,...

    Wednesday May 18, 7:00 PM Hong Kong marshals star power of Jackie Chan to boost Chinese nationalism Hong Kong marshaled the star power of Jackie Chan to boost lukewarm Chinese nationalism in the former British colony in a TV ad campaign unveiled on Wednesday. As officials showed off the advertisement, Hong Kong lawmakers debated a motion urging the government to require the hanging of the Chinese flag on government buildings, schools and universities. The latest moves were likely inspired by China's concerns that Hong Kongers aren't patriotic enough. Accustomed to Western-style freedoms under British rule that only ended eight years...

In the realistic life, this internationally famous movie star really shed his heart-aching tears. Why and for what? For the ugly show of a handful of people in Hong Kong. A few days ago, the world-renowned football team - the British Liverpool was invited to put on a performing match in Hong Kong. This was one of the measures taken by the Hong Kong SAR Government to "boost the...
