Martial arts action hero Jackie Chan is in a new movie, "The Spy Next Door", now playing in theatres in the US, Canada and Singapore. At a press conference for the movie in Beijing earlier of the week, he announced the film will be released across China on February 14th, which is the first day of China's lunar new year and, in western countries, Valentine's Day.

Amber Valetta, George Lopez and Billy Ray Cyrus co-star with Chan in "The Spy Next Door," in which action sequences take a back seat to slapstick family comedy.
