A bunch of new “The Forbidden Kingdom” character posters have surfaced over at IESB and I’ve got to admit I think they look pretty sweet. For those of you who don’t know what The Forbidden Kingdom is, here’s a little synopsis of the film:
While hunting down bootleg kung-fu DVDs in a Chinatown pawnshop, Jason (played by Michael Angarano - “24″, “Will and Grace,” LORDS OF DOGTOWN, SEABISCUIT) makes an extraordinary discovery that sends him hurtling back in time to ancient China. There, Jason is charged with a monumental task: he must free the fabled warrior the Monkey King, who has been imprisoned by the evil Jade Warlord. Jason is joined in his quest by wise kung fu master Lu Yan (Jackie Chan) and a band of misfit warriors including Silent Monk (Jet Li). But only by learning the true precepts of kung fu can Jason hope to succeed - and find a way to get back home.
Yes, the premise sounds LAME… but let’s see what Chan and Jet Li can do on screen together.

User comment: By: DJ MachismoThe premise for the set up to get from Chinatown to ancient China is a bit odd. But other than that it looks to be a very promising premise. Plus as already said before, Li and Chan together. Very nice.
User comment: By: chris (the real one)sigh.....imnot to sure about this one....besides the matrix most american made martial arts flicks have been so-so to bad.....and the story really sounds awful, hopefully the train the white-boy enough so the fight scenes look good...... but jet li and jackie kick all types of ass and havin them in the same movie gives me a kung-fu boner....
