Kineski povijesni epski ratni spektakl redateljskog dvojica Li Zhanga i Jackie Chana koji ujedno igra i glavnu ulogu u ovom filmu. Radi se o visokobudžetnom spektaklu sa budžetom od 30 milijuna $ i bazira se na stvarnim povijesnim događajima iz 1911 kada je Xinhai revolucija u Mandžuriji. 1911 se inače najavljuje kao 100. film Jackie Chana, iako na IMDB-u piše da mu je ovo 106. film po redu. Ali valja ne računaju one s početka karijere u kojima je odigrao gotovo ne zamjetne cameo uloge. Uz Chana u filmu nastupa preko 70-ak glumaca, te nekoliko 100-injaka statista. A osim što igra glavnu ulogu i ko-režira ovaj film, Jackie Chan je ujedno i producent te koreograf borilačkih sekvenci, a njegov, JC Stunt Team je zadužen za sve opasne scene. Film se snima na nekoliko svjetskih lokacija kao što su Kina, ali i Francuska i Engleska. Kineska i Američka premijera ovog filma su predviđene za 12. listopad 2011., a Japanska bi se trebala održati 15. studenog 2011.
