The latest comedy from Jackie Chan banned in China

There's no statute of limitations on sequels, but "Rush Hour 3" will be pushing the envelope this week as it launches in North America six years after "Rush Hour 2."

Even so, the New Line Cinema buddy action flick starring Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan is in line to pick up the baton from Universal Pictures' "The Bourne Ultimatum," which dominated the previous weekend and should hold down the No. 2 spot this frame with a $30 million-plus haul.

By contrast, the weekend's other new wide arrivals aren't looking to hit any home runs as Paramount Pictures unveils its fantasy film "Stardust" and Sony Pictures rolls out the family sequel "Daddy Day Camp."

Still, it should make for another upbeat weekend for Hollywood compared with the same frame a year ago, when Sony's comedy "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" led the field for a second weekend with sales of $22.1 million, reports Reuters.

According to Rte.ie, 'Rush Hour 3', the latest action comedy from Hong Kong-born actor Jackie Chan, has been banned in China .

The ban follows speculation that the film was proving politically contentious, despite the fact that Chan is a national hero in China.

Xiao Ping, of China Film Group's import and export arm, told The Independent newspaper: "We think it will not be popular in China."

He announced his intention to create a news service called "Pravda," which means "truth" in Russian. Well, we are Pravda. The Pravda.Ru website has been working professionally in Russia since 1999
