Wang Kai Stars in Jackie Chan’s “Railroad Tigers”

We have some information about the Jackie Chan/Ding Sheng film, Railroad Tigers (铁道飞虎), set to release in China 3 October 2016 that stars Wang Kai (and also former EXO member Huang Zitao).

“Fearless Fighters Derail the Unstoppable Train”

There hasn’t been too much released about this film as of yet, other than some promotional posters etc. and some Wang Kai Weibo posts from when he was still filming it. The brochure says:

RAILROAD TIGERS is the newest Jackie Chan film. It harks back to the golden age of Jackie Chan’s classic action-comedies such as Project A and Drunken Master II, but with bigger production values and bigger action set pieces.

In December 1941, Japan expands the occupation of its neighboring countries to Southeast Asia. The railway from Tianjin to Nanjing in East China became a key military transportation route heavily guarded by Japanese soldiers. Railroad worker Ma Yuan (Jackie Chan) leads a team of fearless fighters. Using his deep knowledge of the train network, he and his men sabotage it, ambushing the Japanese soldiers and stealing supplies to feed the starving Chinese. Although the fighters have no weapons of their own, they employ whatever tools that are at hand, including shovels, loose railway track planks, and diverted trains. The local Chinese call the unlikely heroes the “Railroad Tigers”. the fearless fighters find themselves on the wrong side of the tracks when the Japanese send reinforcements to Shandong. In an act of defiance, Ma Yuan launches his most dangerous mission yet, blowing up a heavily-guarded railroad bridge. When the Japanese learn of the crippling plan, which will derail the war effort, the stakes are raised even higher. 

Seeing as it is a Jackie Chan film, there is a slightly greater chance of it perhaps getting a wider international release, but we will have to see. Hopefully it will be more widely released so we can all see Kai Kai on the big screen!

Here are some other posters released from the official Railroad Tigers Weibo account (and one they released of Kai Kai as a baby! So cute!
