In the action-comedy Skiptrace, Jackie Chan plays a Hong Kong detective who teams up with a loose-cannon American detective to stop a notorious criminal. Wait, how the f**k is this not Rush Hour? Because there's no Chris Tucker in sight this time, instead you've got Johnny Knoxville to put up with. Judge expectations accordingly.
A new trailer for Skiptrace has arrived and, frankly, it looks absolutely awful. That might explain why it's going straight to DirecTV (not an automatic death sentence, but close) this month before hitting theaters in the fall. Directed by Renny Harlin (The Legend of Hercules) with Fan Bingbing (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and ex-WWE diva Eve Torres co-starring, the film exactly what I told you earlier. Here's the synopsis anyway:
Fists and feet are flying in this explosive action-comedy starring Jackie Chan and Johnny Knoxville. For years, by-the-book Hong Kong detective Benny Chan has tried to avenge his partner’s murder at the hands of a drug lord. When Benny learns that freewheeling American gambler Connor Watts (Knoxville) has the evidence he needs, he teams with Connor to get justice.
Skiptrace hits DirecTV on July 28th followed by a theatrical run on September 2nd.
