Filming of The Myth Continues
According to Chinese news reports, Jackie and the production team of The Myth are traveling extensively through China to film various parts of the movie. Unfortunately, accidents continue to plague this production - another actor has suffered an injury on the set. It seems as though working with horses isn't as easy as it looks!
More Christmas Cards for Jackie!
Just when the Kids Corner webmaster had nearly given up hope that fans would send in the kinds of wonderful Christmas cards that they have in past years, she went to check the Kids Corner mailbox and it was STUFFED full of cards for Jackie. Thanks so much! Click below to see the newest additions to the cards.
There will be more cards posted either tonight or tomorrow since another package of cards has just arrived from fans in Wisconsin!

Jackie on German Television
After arriving in Nuernberg, Germany today from Beijing, Jackie appeared on a popular German interview show. He talked a little bit about Around the World in 80 Days and he mentioned again that he would like to do more acting that action in the future. He also mentioned the accident on the set of The Myth and talked about his work with the United Nations Children's Fund. Jackie was in fine physical shape (he mentioned being tired from the travel), so it looks like he's fully recovered from his injuries on The Myth set. Click the photos below to see the interview (it's in English) OR a great spot where Jackie breaks bricks while holding a raw egg in his hand!

New Police Story
Jackie's newest Hong Kong movie, New Police Story, is finally available for viewers outside of Asia to see - it has been released on DVD and can be purchased online from various sources.
This movie shows a side of Jackie that most have never seen before. It is an intensely emotional movie that is, at times, almost painful to watch. And that says a LOT about Jackie's superior acting ability. New Police Story is not a movie for Jackie's younger fans. It is too intense. But since this website has many adult Jackie fans who visit, the webmaster will be posting a review here within the next few days, so stay tuned.
