Jackie Chan : The movie sequels master

Jackie Chan has a worldwide fan base from Singapore to America. His movies are box office hits, and the actor hasn't called it quits, after 100+ outings.

With the rumours afloat of an appearance in 'Expendables 3' and his return to 'Rush Hour 4' it's clear the actor can continue his success formula by starring in more sequels, and bring in more box office dollars.

The karate master has been one of the most prolific action actors in the past several decades. His movies in China have also been spun into franchises. Just look at the Police Story legacy and his work in the 'Project A' movies. Now with his career in America firmly solidified, Chan's consistent action, entertaining adventures and silly facial expressions are a guaranteed cheer for audiences that love a bit of un-necessary dialogue and over-the-top stunts. He's even managed to star in two animation sequels : Kung Fu Panda 1 + 2 and yes, we've seen Rush Hour 1, 2, 3, Police Story 1,2,3,4 and 5, and 6 has just been announced!

Although Chan is slowing down now, his sequels legacy is hard to beat. Just take a look at his long list of movies. How many have a part 2 or more?
