Vanguard is a 2020 Chinese action-risk thriller TV movie written and directed by Stanley Tong, starring Jackie Chan, Yang Yang and Miya Muqi. The movie was originally scheduled to be released in China on January 25, 2020, but it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the seventh film jointly shot by Jackie Chan and director Stanley.


The accountant is threatened by the world’s deadliest mercenary organization, and the hidden security company Vanguard is his last hope for survival.

Filming locations were in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and Taiwan. Jackie Chan almost drowned while shooting a movie scene. According to reports, Chan’s salary is 80 million yuan (about 12 million US dollars).


It will be released in China on January 25, 2020, but it was withdrawn due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the postponement of the film’s release in China, the theater releases of “Pioneer” in Singapore and the Philippines have been delayed. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in China, many drama premieres have been cancelled, so certain regulations prohibit any Chinese film from being released overseas before the film is released locally.


The film was announced on September 1, 2020 and will be released in China on September 30, 2020. The English version of the film will be shown in theaters in the United Arab Emirates and some neighboring countries on October 8, 2020.

Gravitas Ventures has obtained the copyright in North America and plans to release the film widely on November 20, 2020, including autonomous driving and IMAX theaters.
