Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan, 54, on Wednesday night attended the charity Japan premiere of his latest film “Forbidden Kingdom” (Japanese title “Dragon Kingdom”) in Tokyo. Chan said, “We received a lot of donations from Japan. I really thank you from the bottom of my heart. It’s not about how much you donated. Every donation is helpful.”

About 1,378,000 yen was raised from the 2,000 yen admission fee paid by each member of the audience to attend the premiere. The money will be donated to survivors of the Sichuan earthquake in China through the Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation.

Chan will also hold a charity auction for earthquake relief aid in Miyagi and Iwate Prefectures. His original jacket and calabash used in the film, which symbolize his kung-fu action style, will be auctioned by Rakuten from July 20.

Director Rob Minkoff, 45, and Japanese celebrity Misako Yasuda, 26, also attended the premiere. The film will be released from July 26 nationwide.

Jackie Chan is very cool. I can't believe he's still doing his own stunts at this age though.

Good on you, Jackie, as the Aussies would say. What are those are wooden things they are holding?

Those wooden things look like traditional drinking gourds made from hollowed fruits.

Watch any Chinese MA movie and you will see them, like "Drunken master", etc.
