Was digging some information about Michael Angarano – who’s going to star in Chinese American movie The Forbidden Kingdom alongside Jackie Chan and Jet Li – when I found this video. It’s a trailer for Sky High, a 2005 superhero comedy film about a school for teenagers with special power…
Angarano played Will Stronghold, son of two superhero parents in the world where superheroes are part of everyday life. He’s also a student in a high school that exclusively teaches teenagers with superpowers. The rests are coming of age stuff, teen romance and save the parents plot.
I’ve seen the movie on TV, thought it was decent; couldn’t immediately connect the kid from then to now though. The film also starred Kurt Russell and Kelly Preston as the parents, with Danielle Panabaker and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as his schoolmates and love interests.
Speaking of The Forbidden Kingdom, the filming has started earlier this month in Mongolia. It’s the first ever production to feature both Jackie Chan and Jet Li, two of the biggest Asian action movie stars. Angarano will play a significant role in the film. The co-stars include Collin Chou, Liu Yifei and Li Bingbing.
