The Weekend Watch is an open thread where you can share what you’ve recently watched, offer suggestions on movies and TV shows we should check out (or warnings about stuff to avoid) and discover queue-filling goodies from other FSR readers. The comments section awaits. I’ll get the ball rolling with the movies/TV my eyeballs took in this weekend.

I’ll never not be a fan of Jackie Chan. Sure he suffers from foot-in-mouth disease, but as with Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin before him I’ve learned to appreciate the art even more than the artist. To that end Chan has provided us with incredible entertainment over the years, often at the detriment of his own physical well being, and one of his greatest achievements is the Police Story film franchise that started way back in 1985 (and includes Supercop and First Strike). And now the sixth film, saddled with the somewhat ridiculous moniker of Police Story 2013, is scheduled to open in Chinese theaters later this month. (Seven days before the start of 2014 to be precise, meaning the film will already be dated just one week into its release.) As with 2004’s New Police Story, the film actually bears no connection to the character of Kevin “Jackie” Chan who helped make the first four so damn entertaining. Instead, Chan plays an Interpol officer in mainland China who finds himself investigating a mysterious group kidnapping of some bar patrons. Also like the previous film, this one seems more focused on drama and gritty violence than on goofy shechanigans. Yeah, that’s right. Shechanigans. Check out the teaser for Police Story 2013 below.
