The evening of February 3, Jackie Chan to bring Lee Hom, Seung Jun, Baoqiang, the new Seven Little Fortunes, Lin Peng, and directors and other creative staff appeared Ding Sheng Beijing Wukesong Sports Center, "Private Game" Spring Festival Gala Premiere, more kin, Jonathan Lee, Jaycee Chan, Zhao Benshan, a small Shenyang and other stars to help out, in order to film the campaign.

Zhao Benshan expressed support for a brief appearance

In Beijing for Spring Festival Evening sketches and busy Zhao Benshan and small Shenyang mentoring, in order to support an old friend of Jackie Chan, deliberately rushed to the premiere ceremony of the scene. Zhao Benshan and small Shenyang teacher and student were presented in addition to Jackie Chan's blessing, but also the host and the audience's request, the small Shenyang impromptu imitation of Jackie Chan sing their classic tracks, attracted to the scene applause. Jackie Chan the audience not contain himself, snatching the microphone shouted: "This song is not so sing!" Also tried to sing a few. Zhao Benshan said with a smile: "I thought to myself how little of Shenyang sing this song so cruelly, the original on the original singers sing so ugly!" Grand Comedy. The thought I could use the opportunity to ask a few on the Spring Festival Evening Zhao Benshan problem, but Old Zhao obviously knew what to say at the moment are not too desirable, so there does not appear in the background and access to area, but the stage next, after secretly left the scene. As a starring Jackie Chan, on the duty-bound to accept the reporter's interview.

Little man with big ideas

Reporter: "Private Game" is that you played a minor, with the former's role is very different ah?

Jackie Chan: Yes, this movie does, I played was an ordinary man. How to tell it, cowardly, afraid to die ... ... whether it is modeling, ah, ah are related to the previous role of dialogue is far too small, the character design and movement are also very different.

Reporter: But this little guy who has had a particularly strong on the faith in peace.

Jackie Chan: In this movie, a lot of places in the war, some people do not want to fight, but the emperor's idea is to unity it is absolutely necessary, it in fact a confrontation inside, I and my Lee Hom opposition, in the end is a war that we can enjoy a better life, or whether we can enjoy a better life do not fight it? I played this little guy does not fight what I feel will be able to go home, and that time will be able to enjoy a better life by.

The initial fee of only 3,000 yuan

Reporter: After some calculations, coupled with this "Private Game" is your first 99 movies starring, and you feel that these works you are satisfied? Are there lousy movies do?

Jackie Chan: Can making 100 films are good films but if want to be very, very difficult, I used a fee of 3,000 yuan, have enough to eat to eat the next day, do not know where to find food to eat, there was no choice, at that time to make a living is simply impossible to choose what went to shoot the film, to be called what you want to make what you shoot. In that case, there would be quality and not do the work, but at that time the film is because there are a variety of limitations, or it can be said that no money went to shoot.

Reporter: So it can be said not long ago Paipian Zi, and now you beat the purpose of these films have very different?

Jackie Chan: Indeed, before the Hollywood film crews are actually for the money, there for me to spend the fee of a high, so I will take pictures. But Hollywood will not give me the money Toupai "Shinjuku Incident", "Private Game" this side of literature and art films, but returned to China, I can do whatever they shoot, I want to make movies, that is what I focus on the domestic causes. In the film "In Search of Jackie Chan," When I was a dime confiscated, airline tickets by themselves, the. In fact, one is to help the kids.

Reporter: ask a question of more cliches do you think so many movies where it is considered a masterpiece you do?

Jackie Chan: In fact, when a small beginning to the martial arts from child star to guide, I probably took 48 years to more than 200 movies. There are 99 as a male lead. But today, in the end I do not know which department to be my representative, each one thought - for example, "Private Game", we still feel that inside a lot of defects, the next one will be better, there will always be under a . To the back, and then we draw a conclusion from the bar.

"Zodiac" after fierce fighting never make another film

Reporter: "Private Game", your next film was the first 100, and this very memorable film you have any plan?

Jackie Chan: who want to make, "Zodiac." Talking about the Chinese zodiac animals returned to China in the first story. As early as six years ago, I saw the first foreign animal in the auction, a great touch. At that time wanted to why our national treasures are always lost it in overseas? That when you want to start to do. Last year, there were two animals in the first auction, but also caused me to shoot, "Zodiac," the idea. Many large countries keep saying it is the world's heritage, nominally to take custody of this actually is an appropriation. Is very shameful! To make the film, they want to this phenomenon manifested.

Reporter: So you did before the movie ready?

Jackie Chan: Haha, actually a year when the auction in the Summer Palace, I have come up with over 30 million U.S. dollars, would like to quietly put an animal in the first film to come back. However, the final price is 100 million U.S. dollars shoot, too, and I can not afford to give up.

Reporter: "Zodiac" is still the action film?

Jackie Chan: Yes, because this is the first 100 Well, so the production is also very serious. In fact, I hesitated for a long time, many people also said that action movies are just too money-burning, and advised me not to shoot because there is a fight scene just to be able to cost 70 million. But in the end decided to do. This movie will be a lot of intense action shots, almost from scratch, hit the tail.

Reporter: Are you from a video film made since the movements are basically opera, I heard that you have broken every bone in it?

Jackie Chan: It's a bit exaggerated. However, from scalp to the soles of the feet, every inch of skin and are trained in injury is true. Fortunately, however, have to shoot a scene for nearly 50 years of martial arts only been to two hospitals, one is cracked skull, and going to sew; the other one was a broken leg play gypsum, the other injuries I seem to have nothing.

Reporter: This is 100, you will repeat the act do?

Jackie Chan: Action film will be shot, but like so fierce fighting, "Zodiac" should be the last one had.

 赵本山短暂露面表示支持

  在北京为春晚小品而忙碌的赵本山和小沈阳师徒,为了支持老朋友成龙,特意赶到首映礼现场。赵本山和小沈阳师徒二人除了向成龙献上祝福外,更在主持人及现场观众的要求下,小沈阳即兴模仿成龙演唱经典曲目,引得现场阵阵掌声。台下的成龙按捺不住,夺过话筒大喊:“这个歌不是这么唱的!”也试着唱了几句。赵本山笑着说:“我心想小沈阳这歌怎么唱得这么难听,原来原唱就唱得这么难听!”全场爆笑。本以为可以借机问赵本山几个关于春晚的问题,但老赵显然知道此刻说什么都不大适宜,所以根本没有出现在后台的访问区,而是在下了舞台后秘密地离开了现场。而作为主演的成龙,就责无旁贷地接受了记者的专访。

  小人物有大观念

  记者:在《大兵小将》中您饰演的是个小人物,跟以前的角色很不一样啊?

  成龙:对的,这次的电影中呢,我演的是个小人物。怎么讲呢,懦弱、贪生怕死……无论是造型啊、对白啊都跟以前的角色相差很多的,性格上和动作设计上也非常不一样。

  记者:但是这个小人物身上却有着一个特别坚定的关于和平的信念。

  成龙:在这个电影里,好多地方在打仗,有些人是不想打仗的,但是秦始皇的观念就是为了统一一定要打,这里面其实就是一个对立,我和王力宏的对立,到底是打仗了我们才能过上好日子呢,还是不打仗我们才能过上好日子呢?我演的这个小人物呢就觉得不打仗了我就能回家了,到时候就能过上好日子了。

  最初片酬只有3000元

  记者:有人计算过,加上这部《大兵小将》已经是您主演的第99部电影了,您觉得这些作品您都满意吗?有没有烂片呢?

  成龙:能拍100部电影而且要想都是好片的话会非常非常的难,以前我的片酬是3000元,吃都吃不饱,第二天去哪里找饭吃都不知道,根本没得选择,那个时候为了生活根本不可能去选择去拍什么片子,别人叫你拍什么你就拍什么。在那种情况下确实会有质量不行的作品,但那个时候的电影是因为有各种局限,或者可以说是没有钱去拍。

  记者:那么是不是可以说您很早之前拍片子和现在拍这些片子的目的也有很大不同呢?

  成龙:确实,之前在好莱坞拍戏其实都是为了钱,那里给我开的片酬高,所以我才会去拍。但好莱坞不会给我钱投拍《新宿事件》《大兵小将》这样偏文艺的电影,而回到国内,我可以为所欲为拍我想拍的电影,这也是我把重心放在国内的原因。在拍《寻找成龙》的时候我就一毛钱没收,飞机票都是自己贴的。其实就是为了帮孩子们一把。

  记者:再问一个比较俗套的问题,您觉得这么多部电影哪一部才算是您的代表作呢?

  成龙:其实小的时候从童星开始到武术指导,我在48年里大概拍了超过200部的电影。担任男一号的有99部。但是今天我自己都不知道到底哪部才能算是我的代表作,每想到一部——比如说《大兵小将》,就还是会觉得里面有好多缺陷,下一部会比较好,永远都会有下一部。到了后面,再由大家盖棺定论吧。

  《十二生肖》后不会再拍激烈打斗的片子

  记者:《大兵小将》之后,您的下一部电影就是第100部了,这部很有纪念意义的电影您有什么计划吗?

  成龙:想拍《十二生肖》。讲的是十二生肖兽首回归中国的故事。最早在6年前我看到国外在拍卖兽首,触动很大。当时就想为什么我们的国宝总是流失在海外呢?那个时候就想要开始做了。去年又有两个兽首被拍卖,又引发了我拍《十二生肖》的念头。很多大国口口声声的说那是世界遗产,名义上是代为保管,实际就是据为己有。非常可耻!拍这部电影就是想把这个现象表现出来。

  记者:那么之前对这部电影您做过准备吗?

  成龙:哈哈,其实有一年在圆明园拍卖的时候,我曾经拿出过3000万美元,想静悄悄地把某个兽首拍回来。但是最后的拍价是1亿美元,太高了,我买不起,只好放弃。

  记者:《十二生肖》依旧是动作片?

  成龙:对,因为这是第100部嘛,所以制作上也非常认真。其实我也犹豫很久,很多人也说动作片太烧钱,劝我别拍,因为有场戏光是打斗就能耗资7000万。但最后还是决定要做。这部戏会有很多激烈的动作镜头,几乎是从头打到尾。

  记者:您从影以来所拍的电影基本都是动作戏,听说您的每根骨头都断过?

  成龙:这就有点夸张了。但是从头皮到脚板,每一寸皮肤都受过伤倒是真的。不过都还好,拍了将近50年武打戏只去过两次医院,一次是头骨裂开了,要去缝;另一次是腿断了去打石膏,其他伤我看来都不算什么。

  记者:这100部之后,您还会再打下去吗?

  成龙:动作片应该还会拍,但像这么激烈的打斗,《十二生肖》应该会是最后一部了
