Around the World in 80 Days (Original title)

With this action comedy, Görlitz started its Hollywood career, and right away, the city could represent the big metropolises of the world: The Untermarkt turned into Paris in the 18th century, the Landskron Brewery became New York Harbour. A few requisites and signs still remind us of the shooting. And actor Jackie Chan fascinated the inhabitants of Görlitz and gladly posed for photographs.

Story

Action comedy based on Jules Verne’s novel “Around the World in 80 Days“ with the crazy adventurers Phileas Fogg (Owen Wilson) and Passpartout (Jackie Chan).

Paris at the turn of the century: Phileas Fogg bets against the Reform Club in London, saying that he could manage to travel around the world in 80 days.

Meanwhile, the members of the Reform Club are trying to put obstacles in their way to prevent them from winning the bet.
