HONG KONG (AP) — Jackie Chan and Jet Li's first movie together is a hit in China.



There were concerns whether "The Forbidden Kingdom" would appeal to Chinese because its script is geared toward American audiences.

The movie is about an American teenager who's magically transported to ancient China, where he teams with a drunken fighter (Chan) and a monk (Li) to help free a mythical monkey king.

But the Hollywood-Chinese co-production made $21.4 million in 10 days since its April 24 debut, Tang Jingting, a spokeswoman for Chinese movie company Huayi Brothers, one of the film's investors, said in a phone interview Thursday.
