(AP) Jackie Chan says he wants his latest film to spread the message about how China's national artifacts are being looted and sold.
Chinese Zodiac or CZ12 is about a man who finds and recovers 12 bronze zodiac animal heads historically depicted as being looted from China's Summer Palace by colonialists.
He said he was upset after seeing three of the bronzes being auctioned while he lived in Hong Kong.
The director and star of the film told reporters in South Korea, I wanted to give you and people around the world a message through a movie about the looting.
Chan was in Seoul to promote the movie and attend its South Korean premiere. It opened in Hong Kong in December and is gradually appearing worldwide.
