While actor Kevin Spacey has been hard at work assembling the new series “House of Cards” with fellow producer David Fincher at Netflix, he’s also finding time to join the ranks of A-Listers like Christian Bale in the recent “The Flowers of War” and Hugh Jackman in “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan,” by starring in a Chinese movie featuring both Mandarin and English languages.

The “American Beauty” and “The Usual Suspects” Academy Award winner hit China’s theaters just this past weekend in the “Super”-esque superhero drama “Inseparable,” directed by Beijing-based helmer Dayyan Eng. "Inseparable” follows the monotonous day-to-day routine of Li (Daniel Wu) as he wears his suit and tie and works a quirky job at a prosthetic-limb company. After the desperate nature of his life begins to haunt him, Li decides to commit suicide, but just as he's going to hang himself in the living room, Li is interrupted by his arrogant brash American neighbor Chuck (Kevin Spacey). We have a first look at Spacey and Wu donning masks and costumes as they begin their unlikely pairing in the film, heading out into the city in their homemade superhero outfits to right perceived wrongs. There's also another of Spacey looking like a tracksuit-wearing Ben Stiller from "The Royal Tenenbaums."

It’s another interesting step for the entertainment industry as Hollywood seems to be aiming for a more international audience, and though there’s no word on a stateside release just yet, it’s worth noting that the film seems to be gathering mostly positive reviews. [Entgroup]

    It was horrible. I just watched the thing on Netflix. Spacey's going to kill his reputation if he keeps on making lame, silly, embarrassing shows like this.

    Kevin wasn't paid a lot because I saw the film in Pusan where it premiered last year, and saw interviews which Kevin talked about the script. The film was a very interesting look at modern China and the changes going on. They are barely in superhero costumes in the movie, so it's got nothing to do with Kick-Ass.

    Guess Kevin Spacey was paid a lot by the production company. The storyline is about the Chinese guy's dealing with his mental illness problem instead of some Kick-Ass genre. If it's released wordwide, Kevin Spacey's gonna be underrated.

    Did you see the film or are you just hating it because it's from China? No wonder you Chinese never get anywhere, you never support each other.
