New Police Story is #1 at Box Office!
Recently Jackie has been complaining to the press that Hollywood is not the place to be for Asian actors. They are often given predictable roles which don't allow any creative freedom. Jackie is happy to be back in Hong Kong where he can put his talents to good use. He is looking toward a future as an ACTOR and not an action star. Maybe when Hollywood sees what Jackie can do when he's given more freedom they will allow him to make the kinds of movies he wants to make.

New Police Story Premieres in Hong Kong
Jackie is thrilled with the response to his high-budget Hong Kong picture "New Police Story." Critics are calling it a hit and many are comparing this film to some of Jackie's classics. New Police Story adds more drama than his older movies, and the combination appears to be a winner. Here are some photos from the Hong Kong premiere yesterday:

New Police Story Getting GREAT Reviews!
So far the buzz has been totally positive about Jackie's latest Hong Kong movie, New Police Story. Click here to read a great review from The Straits Times Asia. Congratulations to Jackie and the cast and crew of New Police Story.
Let's Get the Story Straight, Okay?
Some very irresponsible "journalists" have recently misquoted Jackie with regard to comments he made about his son Jaycee's recently released music CD. They have accused Jackie of making some very unkind statements about Jaycee's music. Please keep in mind that through the combination of poor translations and the unprofessional behavior of some journalists, Jackie has been wronged. These stories have taken Jackie's words and twisted them to try to create a scandal where none exists. To get the REAL Jackie news, stick to the official website.
Kids Corner Computer Has Finally Arrived!
Yes, it's been a tough couple of weeks, but all is in order now. The website's server is fresh and new (and FAST!) and the Kids Corner webmaster has a brand new Dell computer to help her bring you the best of Jackie Chan. Right now, there is a backlog of work for the webmaster. There are postcards and t-shirt designs and drawings that all needed to be added. This will be done ASAP - most likely over the weekend. Thanks for your patience. Really.

Why is the Kids Corner Webmaster So Sad?
Well, it was only two weeks ago that the Kids Corner server (that's the thing that brings the Kids Corner website to the Internet) was upgraded and the Kids Corner was down for nearly a week. NOW the Kids Corner webmaster's computer has gone to computer Heaven. Don't worry, a new computer is on its way and should arrive soon. Please be patient. All of the new postcards, drawings, and t-shirt designs have been safely stored away on a laptop and will appear here VERY SOON! There are some beautiful things that have arrived via regular mail and email. Thank you for all your patience. The Kids Corner will be up and running better than ever as soon as all this computer stuff is taken care of. In the meantime......

The Kids Corner is Back !!!!!
It has been a long five days since the Kids Corner server suddenly went KAPUT! and knocked www.jackiechankids.com offline. In case you don't know, the SERVER is the thing that sends the website out to the Internet. The Kids Corner does not use the same server as www.jackiechan.com and that is why it was just this site that wasn't functioning. Hopefully this will never happen again, especially for such a long period of time! If you ever come to the Kids Corner and get an error message, don't worry. Sometimes technical difficulties come up with no warning. The Kids Corner is HERE TO STAY! Thanks to everyone who sent emails to the webmaster expressing concern (or alarm). All is well.
In the last few days, the Kids Corner has received lots of baby photos, Buddy Bears, and "I Want to Be A Jackie's Kid" applications. Thanks to everyone who has sent these things in.
It will take a few days for the Kids Corner to catch up to what has been going on with Jackie. So have a little patience and the Kids Corner will deliver all the fun stuff you're used to seeing here! Don't forget about the t-shirt contest (see below).

Buddy Bear Book is Winging Its Way to Hong Kong
The Buddy Bear Second Edition book is on its way to Jackie! Since the crew is filming in a remote China countryside, Willie decided it would be safer to send the book to Hong Kong and then have one of the staff bring it to Jackie when they travel to the movie location. So have patience - eventually Jackie will see the book. Stay tuned for news about the Buddy Bear book.

One More Thing...
Many of you have already sent in the form for "I Want To Be A Jackie's Kid" and that's great! What isn't so great is that many of you have not sent a photo with the form. If you don't send a photo of yourself, your story will not be considered. Also, many of you have written one or two word answers to the questions on the form. The more you write, the better your chances of becoming a Jackie's Kid. The webmaster cannot use your story if you don't give enough information. So WRITE MORE! And send a photo! Thanks.
