Hong Kong actor and stunt legend Jackie Chan is certainly no stranger to movie fans in Malaysia. For the past few years, the actor made a couple of visits to Malaysia to film and promote various movies such as “Police Story 3” and “CZ12”.

Just recently, he was awarded Datukship by our Federal Territories minster as the Federal Territories minister claimed that the actor can help to promote Malaysia. He was among the 71 recipients to be conferred the Panglima Mahkota Wilayah in conjunction with Federal Territories Day on Monday.

But other than that, the reason why he deserves to be awarded Datukship was mostly because of his huge following around the world including Malaysia. In an effort to promote his upcoming action movie “Dragon Blade“, Datuk Jackie Chan will once again make his way to Malaysia with his co-stars Adrien Brody, Super Junior’s Choi Siwon, and John Cusack for a meet and greet session.

Helmed by renowned Hong Kong filmmaker Daniel Lee (of “14 Blades” fame), “Dragon Blade” is set in 48BC, and revolves around Huo An (played by Jackie Chan), a Chinese commander who is tasked with protecting China’s Western borders during the Han dynasty. Huo is accused of treason and winds up as a slave labourer, but he still manages to rally the Chinese forces to repel a small invading Roman army led by Lucius (played by John Cusack). However, an even greater challenge lies in wait for Huo. He must find a way to stop the ambitious Tiberius (played by Academy Award-winning actor Adrien Brody), who marches towards the Chinese border gate with a vast army.

The movie has taken Daniel Lee and Jackie Chan 7 years to produce, with a budget of US$65 million. The budget is said to be a record breaking budget for a Chinese film.

“Dragon Blade” is slated for release in IMAX 3D on 19th Feb 2015, the first day of Chinese New Year. Prior to the release of the movie, the cast members will attend multiple movie premieres in China for 3 consecutive days. They will attend the first movie premiere at Guangzhou on 5th Feb, followed by Shanghai on 6th Feb, and Beijing on 7th Feb.

Jackie Chan, Super Junior’s Choi Siwon, John Cusack, and Adrien Brody will then kick off a worldwide promotional tour in Singapore from 9th – 11th Feb 2015. Actresses Lin Peng and Wang Ruo Xin will attend movie’s Singapore premiere with them as well.

Perhaps the most exciting part about the promotional tour is that the cast members will also stop by Malaysia for both public and private meet and greet sessions. So far, information for the private meet and greet session has not been disclosed but according to Astro Circle, it will be held at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Kuala Lumpur on February 11th.

The details are as follows:

Private Meet & Greet Session

  • Date: 11 February 2015 (Wednesday)
  • Time: 2pm to 3pm
  • Venue: The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur

It is unclear how you can get invited to the private meet and greet session but Astro Circle is currently rewarding Active Astro customers with an opportunity to meet and greet the movie cast through an online contest. Only 5 lucky winners will be chosen and each of them will be given a pair of passes. Participants must be the 100th, 200th, 300th, 400th or the 500th Active Astro Customers to submit their entries and answer 1 question to stand a chance to win the passes. The contest ends on 9th February 2015.

But that’s not all.

For those who can’t attend the invite-only meet and greet session at the hotel, a public meet and greet session will be held at 101 City Mall and Pavilion Kuala Lumpur respectively.

The details are as follows:

Public Meet & Greet Session #1

  • Date: 11 February 2015 (Wednesday)

No further details about the public meet and greet session have been revealed but fingers crossed that they will stay longer for more photo opportunities and possibly an autograph session! 🙂
