Jackie Chan has been blessing us with his slick martial art skills for the best part of the last fifty years, and he’s here to do it again in the first trailer for his new movie Skiptrace.
Like most of Chan’s American films, he teams up with a fast talking, smart ass. Most notably Chris Tucker and Owen Wilson. This time round however its former Jackass member Johnny Knoxville who’ll portray that role.
From the trailer, Skiptrace feels like it should have been released in the late 90’s—with the same sorta Rush Hour vibe that Chan’s American audience enjoy. You can watch Skiptrace exclusively on DirecTV Cinema.
Hong Kong detective Bennie Chan (Jackie Chan) has been tracking notorious crime boss Victor Wong for over a decade. When Bennie’s young niece Samantha/bái shū (Fan Bingbing) gets into trouble with Wong’s crime syndicate, Bennie must track down the only man who can help him: fast-talking American gambler Connor Watts (Johnny Knoxville). Bennie races against the clock to bring Connor back to Hong Kong and the unlikely pair embark on an entertaining and perilous adventure from the snowy mountains of Mongolia to the windswept dunes of the Gobi desert
